That is so refreshing. Common sense. Catastrophe for man does not mean it for nature. Storms like these two do not hurt our earth. They are part of it. Our favorite out here is living in a desert. Duh, we run out of water duh.
You are right about building where natural disasters likely will occur. They expect to have 8 million cubic yards of waste for Harvey. Here is a link to an article https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/06/us/garbage-harv...
Knowing about hurricanes results in appropriate expectations: https://weather.com/storms/hurricane/news/hurrican... Equalling no panic at the wind/rain/flooding/etc and acceptance of responsibility for building near water. Duh :)
Tim that is scary. And it just hit me that probably a tenth of that is toxic to some level. The chemicals in garages and under the sink. And some portions have to have feces on them. Or did all that already go into the ocean?
It is scary. Add Irma's to it. That is a 'lot' of landfill. They said for Sandy it was the equivalent of 4 Empire State buildings of refuse. They ask it be separated, but how many do you think will? Good point on toxic to the environment.
