Fires in the Forecast

The folks from The Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC sent out their latest newsletter, which includes a fire weather forecast from Environment Canada.

BC’s “new reality” is “floods, drought, forest fires and windstorms – all happening within the same year, and year after year.”

But, they add “BC has enough remaining natural capital to protect and restore its way back to true sustainability” if civil engineers, urban planners and decision-makers learn to value nature and work with our natural systems instead of trying to control them.

We cannot restore lost biodiversity but we can halt its decline and consciously bend the curve in an upwards direction.
