Climate Emergency Plan:

1. Plant a few trees; destroy forests.
2. Wind & solar; drill the Arctic.
3. Tasty fake meat; more pesticides.
4. Electric buses; aviation boom.
5. Ban plastic straws; 5G.
6. CO₂ tax; private geoengineering.

That reduction would give coastal residents 2 or 3 fewer days to prepare for a hurricane, and could lead to incorrect predictions of the storms’ final path to land. https://grist.org/article/5g-networks-could-throw-weather-forecasting-into-chaos/
