    Francisco: First, let me say I'm a pro-environmentalist, and believer in climate change and global warming. However, well this is all true in my opinion due to man-made degradation of the Earth, could it also be true that there's a warming cycle for the planet that perhaps occurs every few thousand or hundred thousand years for which human kind is unaware? This is just another potential factor to add to this mix about why the planet is warming so quickly. Moreover, the recent flooding because of the Hurricanes Irma and Harvey serve as a ominous reminder of what scientists predict will occur going forward in low lying coastal areas as the sea level incrementally rises due to the melting of the polar ice caps (per your other buzz here).

    Understanding #CumulativeEffects requires an appropriate baseline. Wildfire suppression drastically modifies ecosystem composition & function. This Scoular paper describes 4 methods used to estimate fire frequency in Ontario Canada . Dr. Lori Daniels' work at the UBC Tree Ring Lab is documenting fire frequency in BC.

    Welcome to beBee @Oscar Martínez, What an interesting post. I've not put much thought into noise pollution and the impact on our health. It makes sense that noise pollution is detrimental to our well-being. Even though we enjoy our rock concerts and sports, and all the noise that goes with these events, we probably don't realize how it is impacting our hearing until later on.

    Houston reminds us of the importance of restoring floodplains. Floods are nothing new. Rather, they are natural events that have been happening for millennia, shaping the earth we live on and creating much of the natural bounty that supports us today.

    Still, we villainize nature when she brings us harm. Floods, like wildfires, have gotten a very bad name because of the harm to people we associate with these events. But Mother Nature is not the problem. Dr. Gilbert White, the late founder of the internationally recognized Natural Hazards Center in Boulder Colorado put it well, “Floods are acts of nature; but flood losses are largely acts of man.” We must take heed to this wisdom as we plan for resilience – especially in light of climate change.
