US and many countries world wide suffer dangerous wild fire. They cause many lives to be lost and billions and billions of dollars in losses. In September 2020, California had series of wild fires, within few days more than 5% of California land is under fire. Earlier in January 2020, Australia suffered massive wild fire and it destroyed roughly 46.03 million acre of land, with 100s of live being lost.
Hurricanes and floods are also very common. There are big companies working on space technologies, Neuralink technologies etc etc. My question is why startups or these big companies don’t develop technologies to minimize the damage caused by these natural disasters. This world has many problems, why can’t they invest money to solve the problems at home rather than exploring out universe. Govt can save lot of money if they can minimize the losses because of these natural disasters.
