Identify and solve problems: Focus the assessment activities on gathering evidence in terms of the main outcome expressed in the title to ensure assessment is integrated rather than fragmented. Remember we want to declare the person competent in terms of the title. Where assessment at title level is unmanageable, then focus assessment around each specific outcome, or groups of specific outcomes.
UC Berkeley has in the past flouted environmental reviews to cut down forests e. Public opposition can alter the political landscape: The 3 agencies promoting clearcutting East Bay forests are: This, despite official reports to the contrary see FEMA report directly below.
No scientific studies exist to back their claims. Fire science has repeatedly demonstrated that clearcutting forests, regardless of tree species, INCREASES fire danger because grasses and shrubs replace them and are thinner and drier — retain less water, gather much less fog drip — than trees do.
Ever try to burn a green log in a fireplace? The deforestation coming to thousands of acres of East Bay hills. Additionally, shade-making, fog collecting forest canopy will be destroyed, the Oakland and Berkeley hillsides will become overall hotter and drier with thousands of acres of forest gone, again increasing fire danger.
The Oakland hills fire began in grasses and shrubs, and then ignited houses. Eucalyptus, like redwoods, bays and oaks all burned of course, but human error had much more to do with that fire catastrophic result — and all this is detailed in several official reports on that fire.
These factors may increase the probability of ignition over current conditions. Step back for a moment to a more objective distance and ask yourself: The only fire, in fact, sometimes blamed on eucalyptus trees is the Oakland hills fire, which, as has been oft-repeated on this website, has been officially documented as NOT the fault of eucalyptus trees.
Since the likelihood of these people encountering a zombie is, uh, incredibly low, zombie fear exists for reasons for an imagined danger, not an actual one.
Presumably from watching pop culture movies and TV shows of attacking zombies. They only mention acreage, or numbers obliquely and their public statements vague or misleading e. Numbers are not available to the public, because if people learned the scale of the planned deforestation — hundreds of thousands of healthy trees — they would be outraged and take action.
But a community environmental website has done what done what the would-be tree cutters will not, providing a thorough estimation system to arrive at the ,trees number, based on the only actual documentation, the Environmental Impact Statement.
The National Fire Protection Association NFPA considers all living trees, no matter the species, more resistant to fire than grasses, shrubs, and dead, woody materials on the ground. Instead, make your house resistant to ignition. A Century of Failed Forest Policy This flammable mess is the plan for over 2, acres of healthy forest.
It will not achieve its stated objective of fire danger mitigation because:Residents Upset Over Public Squabbling Amongst Board. By Amy Sylvestri.
