Forest fires have been so devastating these few years that so many people are losing their homes and having to evacuate their cities. This makes me really sad to think about as I can’t imagine having to move out of my home and Vancouver due to forest fires. On top of that, if forest fires are close enough, there is a big chance that my home can burn up along with the nearby forests — thereby no possibility of returning home. It almost gets me angry that if this does happen to me and my city, the cause isn’t even due to me or my community, but others around the world who still don’t care about the environment. The unfairness of global climate change is that whatever you do doesn’t necessarily affect yourself, but affects other lives and the potential destruction of homes. Thus, I believe that a positive future is where forest fires are less devastating and less frequent. I envision a world where everyone can breathe clean air and enough rainfall for farmers to grow crops. My solution is to locate very dry areas and provide more water to these areas to reduce the fuel of potential fires. Preparing in advance can help prevent these devastating fires from taking over cities and most importantly, people’s homes.
