Letter: Are we asking for trouble?
To the editor:
Wonder if Kelowna could also be a victim of such a flood as occurred in Colorado in light of the clear cutting and wildfires that we are experiencing?
Anyone can see when traveling on The Connector, the bare acreage that is becoming more apparent due to the clear cutting.
If we can see this from the highway, how much more clear cutting is hidden from our view?
True, they replant, but it’s all the undergrowth and plants that are being removed too.
It’s a potential for a disaster that is happening all over the world.
Could a devastating rainstorm also cause such a scenario in our area as precipitation in the atmosphere increases from a warming climate?
