Um, dozen people die in flooded basements and you think wildfires are a scarier marker of climate change? Heat waves suck but the NE gets them plus awful humidity.
Come to the Pacific, all good chill people. The Northeast is a trap :)
Air conditioning, earthquake-resistant housing, and sane land management are all Pacific America needs to harden up against climate change. We'd have done it ten years ago except we're trapped under a dysfunctional federal government that isn't gonna get any better.
