New England has very few natural disasters.

You're right that risk managers see risking a smaller population as better, but in context of Native/US relations this can be seen as more disrespect.

I think doing a full review of all treaties that were broken and enforcing them would help.

Here in Maine I have heard how the lack of very cold winters allows the hemlock wooley adelgid population to grow endangering the eastern hemlock trees. Are there other bug populations that behave similarly?

Here in Maine there has been an off shore farm in the planning near Mohegan Island for many years. The larest snag is the commercial fishermen are fighting all locations where the cables would come ashore. Part of it is the problem of the fishermen having to avoid the area where the cable is and I suspect part of it is following the lead of the pro-oil Trump administration.
