The Fire of the Century . . . of the Year

Hellish fires now, Sahara Desert later, says UCI doom prophet Mike Davis

None of this comes as a surprise to the ever-gloomy Davis. "To create open corridors and reducing interfaces between dense suburban development and [wilderness], you would need land-use regulation and zoning on a scale that has been advocated for decades but has never been politically possible," he said. "I guess what I'm saying is you can have two once-in-100-years disasters in five years, a Katrina in the suburbs, but the thought of getting any new policies to arm us against the consequences of climate change? I don't see that happening."
