    I have plenty of reasons in a safe to not to live in CA.

    Iceland is one the nations with the most volcano eruptions. They use geothermal energy to heat their homes, generate electricity and more.. Iceland's volcanos produce over 50% of the planet's lava.

    2 days ago there were 329 records of earth quakes over 2.2 on the riector scale. Most were along the pacific plate. Another reason not to live on the West coast.

    Earth scientists call it the Circum-Pacific Belt; personally, I prefer its more common use name, The Ring of Fire.

    The fault line in the Gulf of Mexico was the cause of Haiti's recent earthquake.

    Yesterday the world had 329 earthquakes over 2.2 in size. If you look, they chart along the edges of the Pacific plate.

    NOAA:

    This was at 1400 hours or 2 PM. The 2 in red have a greater than 60% chance of becoming hurricanes.
    Beats me when hurricanes became cyclones.

    We now have 3 areas of concern says NOAA. One is near S. America and may hit the gulf area. The second is mid Atlantic around Bermuda. The third is just off the West coast of Africa. More to come within 5 days!

    Has any one heard of a volcano eruption in New Mexico in the blast 48 hours?

    Haiti is a real horror story. To make matters even worse, Haiti lacks the infrastructure to supply necessities.

    Here in the US, the need is for leaders and not agendas.

    Turkey: NE has violent storms and unseasonal floods, SW has scorching heat and forest fires.
    Russia parts One end is fighting horizon-wide fires, other end has horizon-wide unseasonal floods...

    Haiti: you gotta feel for them. They cannot catch a break. They've not yet rebuilt after last disaster, now they get a bad quake followed within days by a 'bad tropical storm' plus nasty aftershocks. All they need now is a volcano or full-on hurricane, and they'll have a full set...

    For some reason, California chose not to do controlled burns. As Forrest Gump said "stupid is as stupid does.

    At Ft Bragg, they cut fire lines and do controlled burns.

    As for green house gases look at the sat photos of N. California. That smoke is blowing all the way to NYC.

    As the climate has changed millions of years ago and will continue to change. We can't change the planet.

    In 2021, parts of the Thames River froze for the first time in 58 years.

    What we can change is cleanup the huge garbage patches in our oceans. We can make a difference in so many areas; yet, we close our eyes to it.

    The giant accumulation of plastic called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch contains at least 79,000 tons discarded plastic, covering an area of about 617,800 square miles (1.6 million square kilometers), according to a study published Thursday in Scientific Reports.

    Actually ABC news' math is a bit off with 607,800 sq. miles; it is 617763.5 sq. miles. Ah, our inept news media strikes again..
