    massive wild fires.

    I am trying to imagine some safe place to move that will not be affected by the extreme weather driven by global climate change.

    Seeing how the Earth is round and all, I haven't really thought of any place even close to being insulated by these changes.

      I doubt that there is any place on earth that will not be affected.  But some will be affected more, that's for sure.

      Texas is already hot in the summer, but when it goes up to 107 and stays there, that's too much for me.

      Colorado has a long way to go before it reaches that.  I know they had the wildfires there -- I don't see how that can be stopped.  Best thing to do is to live inside of a city, not near the edges, I guess.

      I love Colorado, have spent a lot of time there.  I love the arid climate.  Around Denver, they don't get tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, or typhoons.  The area is less populous, has an international airport, Denver is blue, there are more chances for progressive policies in the future, etc.

      Maybe Canada near water is the best place to be for climate change?  I'm sure someone has done a study.

        change that I seriously doubt it. It will even affect our vulcanism and earthquake frequency and intensity. And that is in addition to what Fracking does to quake frequency and water quality.

        Canada is not a haven either.
