Wait, I thought preventing all forest fires was the outdated way of doing things that got the west to where we are today with enormous forest fires. We've now realized that some wildfires are healthy for the forest and necessary for regrow the. The US Parks and Forest services already actively manage forests with controlled burns so that infrastructure can be protected in the case of a wildfire. Why would we change this policy if it's the current best practice? Forests in the Rocky Mountains are suffering massive die off because global warming is preventing the deep winter freezes that used to kill off bugs that are killing trees. How about if we worry about that?
