California wildfires to Florida hurricanes, how the rich game climate change: How it affects the poor
California wildfires, the world’s most expensive and deadliest natural disaster, continue to claim lives.
Florida, which was hit by a series of hurricanes, is now being hit by Hurricane Irma.
The tragedy of the California wildfires, which killed at least 77 people and destroyed nearly 2,000 buildings, is a stark reminder that the people who make the biggest decisions on climate change are often those who do not have to live with the consequences.
This is especially true when it comes to the devastating impacts of climate change on the poor.
In California and much of the rest of the U.S., the wealth gap continues to widen. And wealth-based inequities will not be solved by governments and institutions in the same way that they have been in the past.
The way institutions are designed will be crucial to reducing and mitigating the impacts of climate on the lives of the poor, the report notes. They could also hold some of the solutions needed to reduce the impacts of climate change on the poor.
In this context, it is worth examining how climate change affects the poor in different ways.
In California, wildfires can be seen as a warning to the state government, which may be in a situation similar to the way it was in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. It faced a difficult and challenging economic situation with declining tax revenue, and the state went through a large fiscal tightening.
In Florida, however, the hurricanes have the potential to be an opportunity to rethink how the nation copes with the impacts of climate change by looking at the way the government is structured.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is one of the more successful examples of government institutions in the state, which has a public service mission that relies heavily on local leaders.
This kind of institutional structure is not just limited to communities in Florida, but is also becoming popular in other parts of the country.
One way to imagine this institution as a climate change solution is through a game.
It’s a simple game, and it’
