Instead of devoting such a prodigious quantity of resources towards constructing, supplying energy to, and maintaining a mass drone fleet, I believe a government would benefit from and most likely use, at least in the scenarios we have outlined, more advanced sensing technology. With the capacity to be detect such threats, which in my mind will not be frequent, a government need only posses a small, focused fleet of drones to combat the terrorism. It is important to acknowledge that we do not know any of the other conditions of society during a period of time when drone-fire terrorism may be prevalent. Terrorists may have a much easier mechanism of inflicting harm and instilling terror, and they may opt to go another route. Imagine that, in this time, much fewer people live near the forests where forests fires may ignite with ease, such forests in the Midwest. By 2050 the world health organization believes that upwards of 75% of people will live in urban environments. Causing a forest fire may destroy a few homes and kill some people, but strapping explosives to a drone and flying it into a crowded city square could potentially kill a few dozen citizens. Government may simply install drones or bots in many areas, not just to monitor wildfire-prone regions but also to simply prevent other atrocities. This will most likely infringed on privacy. Already, it is believed that in some European nations or regions it is impossible to get away with murder as the surveillance technology is so in tune with people's movements, lifestyles, and habits. If the motivation is to monitor or prevent calamities, from the government's standpoint, there are probably much more effective methods than drones. Facial recognition, DNA tracing in public areas, and personal electronic devices all are fair game in terms of the government watching you. The correlation between people's loss of privacy and terrorist activity and threat being diminished is less than optimal; however, when or if at some point the technology you integrate into your life knows your system better than you, there is the possibility that the government or some other entity takes advantage of that knowledge.
