    This would have been a useful article if it delved into the underlying causes for an increase in frequency and intensity of forest fires. Example: negligent smokers / stoners and campers, dry wood not cleared due to ‘con’-servationalists blocking such clearing of old forest growth, etc.

    Exactly right. No mention of the other causes that are well-known out here in California: people moving into more and more remote areas where brush is prevalent.

    The change in forest management over time to put out small fires immediately, allowing brush to grow wild for years in a way not experienced previously, until a large fire gets out-of-control. In the past, fires consumed large areas of brush before being put out, meaning the large devastating fires of today rarely happened.

    And again, California has had large fires since I was a kid. In the 1970s, nearly all of the entire San Gabriel Mountains were on fire. Climate Change?

    For Insurance Journal, it is the ONLY cause worth mentioning. The Boy Who Cried Wolf, once again. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
