Forest management? That can’t be right. That’s what Trump said! And Biden didn’t even mention forest management. He blamed it ALL on Climate Change! (but Biden didn’t say what to do to stop fires, heh heh. And of course NO Questions!). Who is this, some right wing publication? Nope. Pro Publica. “When I reached Malcolm North, a research ecologist with the U.S. Forest Service who is based in Mammoth, California, and asked if there was any meaningful scientific dissent to the idea that we need to do more controlled burning, he said, “None that I know of.” How did we get here? Culture, greed, liability laws and good intentions gone awry. There are just so many reasons not to pick up the drip torch and start a prescribed burn even though it’s the safe, smart thing to do.” https://www.propublica.org/article/they-know-how-to-prevent-megafires-why-wont-anybody-listen September 15, 2020 at 1:20 pm Mark B says: Like or Dislike: 7 4Every Fire fighter I have spoken to calls climate change as the problem BS and sites poor forest management.
