Heh. Forgot that I hadn't named that cloth. It's now "organic soilcloth."

One of the things about the setup in Panem is that bad things happen all the time, without the direct intervention of the Capitol. What's the likelihood that there's adequate fire safety in the logging district? (My guess: Same as mining safety in Twelve.)

I bet the Capitol has resource conservation laws that would make John Muir proud. Snow /does/ take the long view and would want to ensure that the Capitol never ran out of stuff and that Panem retained what natural beauty it had left after the Catastrophes and the Dark Days.

If the conservation measures ever came up, the Capitol citizens would probably think they were there to preserve nature, and the District citizens would assume they were there to make life harder.

They'd probably both be right, after a fashion. On the other hand, if Panem is still running on enough Appalachian coal to sort of sustain D12, they may not have such strict conservation laws.
