Has anyone heard from our good friend Michael Taylor? With these horrific wildfires, I am wondering what his situation is. I know he once told me that he had concerns about where he was living due to exposure to wild fire.

Bob-
I don't recall Mike's last whereabouts, but there have been five wildfires of note (near and in Redding CA; near and in Paradise CA; near and in Malibu; and Napa and Sonoma counties). I don't recall that he was living in or near any of them...but it would have been hard to have not been impacted by the smoke from these fires...public health issues have been serious, especially the Camp Fire of Paradise which sent smoke through Sacramento, and as far as San Francisco, forcing inhabitants at all sensitive to smoke, to wear masks hundreds of miles away...
Ask any one of those impacted by the California fires whether they were seeing impacts of climate change!

Gosh, I hope he's alright. I've never spoken with him directly, so I can't relay any messages.
