Wildfire smoke choking economy
The problem of B.C. wildfires and the resulting heavy smoke in Alberta seems insoluble, but is actually easily solved. But the government is barely doing anything.
Too little is being spent. The economic damage from a 35 per cent decrease in tourism and real estate values in three to four years will be $500 billion.
It will cost 27 cents per day, per person, to solve it. There are physical prevention solutions as well as artificial intelligence surveillance for early detection. I confirmed the feasibility of my ideas with the director of forestry practices in B.C.
Like-minded people must convene and leaders emerge to brainstorm. Creative advertising people can convey the message to create a groundswell of action to get things implemented.
I would like to have an open meeting for interested people in Canmore between Jan. 20 and Feb. 1. Please contact kenshant[email protected] if you’re interested.
