Moving Back to Jamaica

A blog about my Move Back to Jamaica after 20+ years of living in the US. Most of the articles focus on the period from 2005-2009 when the transition was new, and at it's most challenging.

Wow - talk about Irony

Recently I heard that the recent forest fires in California are actually man made.

Not in the sense that someone actually set the fires, but in the sense that past attempts to our forest fires as soon as they were discovered prevented much of he brush from being removed.

The net effect of all that brush lying around, drying out and becoming better, improved fuel is that fires once started become unstoppable.

In this sense, the fires are encouraged by man's activity to prevent fires.

Ironic, isn't it?

It makes me wonder what other problems we are creating for ourselves that we can't even see right now.
