I have written many times about the need for dedicated federal funds for the reconstruction of homes and communities destroyed by nature or terror.
This will require a dedicated revenue stream, or what we used to call a tax, to generate these funds. The facts are that our population is growing, we live in places we never lived before, and we depend on energy, transport, water and waste infrastructure to live a modern lifestyle.
We are more vulnerable to the impact of a storm than we were before our homes became hosts to the technology of comfort. The fundamental job of government is to provide security and safety for its people.
Natural disasters may be predictable to some degree, but they are unavoidable.
What is avoidable is the sense of economic hopelessness that follows these events. In Louisiana, severe weather can often seem a trauma visited and revisited.
But the disaster unfolding here this week fits into a recent and staggering pattern in more than half-dozen states, where floods have rolled out at such a scale that scientists say they might be a once-everyor-1,year occurrence. The cumulative, increasingly grim toll, from Maryland to South Carolina to Louisiana to Texas, includes scores of lives and billions of dollars in economic losses.
What were once rare occurrences have become commonplace. You could argue that we should build out communities in places less prone to flooding, but there are no such places. Even deserts occasionally get hit with sudden downpours. In addition to the flooding, we see growing impact from forest fires.
The size of wildfires has grown steadily for more than 30 years.
Inthe average fire covered less than 25 acres. Today, the average wildfire burns about acres One cause of the longer seasons is environmental: The warming climate has melted snowpacks earlier, increasing the length of time that forests dry out and become vulnerable to burning.
There is no question that with 39 million or so people living in California, many are living in places that were unpopulated a generation ago, and so a fire might have burned in some remote location 50 years ago but would had little impact on human communities.
More and more extreme weather events are taking place, and we are more likely to suffer damage form those events.
There are a lot of ways to generate revenue for such a trust fund. I would tax gasoline to fund this. Our federal gasoline tax is quite low when compared to other parts of the world, and a disaster surcharge could be set annually based on the needs of the previous year.
We get lucky, the tax goes down; we get hit a lot, the tax goes up.Rebuilding the Government: Assignment Part 1 – Complete the following chart using information from the lesson.
