You are 100% correct sir. For years we put fires out cold and quick. We shut down logging forests for spotted owls, tree frogs and the spineless yellow bellied selfish entitled PETA and HS. Now we are left with forests packed with brush and timber and have increasingly more hot and dry summers. You can keep all the jackasses out of the forest you want but when lightning comes through the fires are going to continue. The real problem is mismanagement of our forests because of old ways and new bleeding heart ways of putting one small life of an owl in front of all others. That shut down jobs and cities like no other.Correct me if i'm wrong or have something misplaced. But... It seems like there is an illogical loop here. California (states?) has done so much fire suppression over the years that the fuel these fires need builds up. So now when a fire happens (whether natural or man-made) in these places that have not burned for 30, 50, 100(?) years they have so much fuel that they rage out of control and devastate the land.
Seems to me the problem is only going to get worse with the size and amount of fires. Isn't a nice brush fire nature's way of helping the land and ecosystem? Or have the scientists forgot that and only see it as a bad thing?
So if they decide to outlaw any form of "fire" in campsites we are the ones shorted by the short-sightedness of the people who said lets suppress fires at all cost.
