Wildfires ~ A New Approach to Fighting Them

Cliff Durfee of DesignAffect.com, one of the older, long lived websites on the World Wide Web, lives all too close to those places most affected by the recent San Diego fires.  Same story in 2003 when he put together a PowerPoint Presentation of ideas he had about a better approach to fighting wildfires.  I’m going to select out a few pictures from his presentation and then also share a few websites you may be interested in following up on the latest stories.  I have a blog with a Danish website (I have a Danish progenitor) and had somehow gotten wind the Danes are no strangers to wildfires and found a product you may want to consider your own dear self.  I hope you find this a worthwhile post and assuming you do, please like, comment, share.  Thanks.

Oh, yes, I had to do some of my own creations, as well.  I never knew how a little dabbling in art creativity (I understand if you decline calling it that) could soothe the emotions.

I found this one last sentence here very worthy of note: EVEN IF WE DIDN’T HAVE THE THREAT of arson and terrorism, we need a better way to be in control of fire.

If you’d like to be able to make a presentation of this material to anyone anywhere, go to Cliff’s website, designaffect.com.  I believe it will be possible to download the PowerPoint Presentation for your purposes. Here follows those websites I told you I had garnered for you:
