The Catastrophic Canard of Climate Change
Our forests are now catastrophically overgrown, often carrying four times the number of trees the land can support. In this stressed and weakened condition, our forests are easy prey for drought, disease, pestilence and fire.Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA)
The United States Forest Service was originally founded to protect forests from the ravages of fire to preserve it for future generations. That thinking was abandoned in favor of the flawed no-use movement, or the rewilding theory, which blames humans for the degradation of our planet. Rewilding the land can repair damage weve caused and reconnect us to the natural world, National Geographic claims.
Conspiracy theory has it that the calf government started the fires to get some of the federals funds they lost over the sanctuary city funding losses.
it has been clear for a long time now that the “rewilding” of the forests in california are a bad, bad idea. culling out trees that are dying or overgrown kept fires under control for many decades, whether the fires were naturally or intentionally ignited. in the words of a favorite singer of mine from long ago, when will they ever learn?
And how many of our 7Th century inbred savages who hate America and Americans are responsible for all these Forrest fires??
How many families have been “rewilded” right into homeless shelters?
Can’t log, can’t selectively cut, can’t clear dead undergrowth.
In some parts of the country you can’t even cut down a tree on your own property.
Best practices forestry requires periodic thinning, burning underbrush and establishing berms to control rain water runoff. Private land owners and commercial tree growers make this part of their long term growing plan to product top quality lumber and prevent their forests from becoming match heads.
Great example of private industry vs Big Gov taking care of our natural resources.
And no they will never learn.
Illegal aliens have been setting fires for years. However, this has been covered up. Ann Coulter mentions this in “Adios America.” I have come across other references also but can’t recall them at the moment.
To Damn Lazy to clean up their own Brush.
It is common knowledge that such wildfires are preventable with mere well proven land management. Practices that have succeeded for years by forestry companies.
Now California’s people are reaping exactly that which they DEMANDED at the behest of nutcase environmentalists. (Do you notice the end of that word is MENTAL?) It fits.
I am truly sad to admit that at this stage my feeling is a regretful “WHO CARES?”
Copying GOP Poet.
Anyone who has learned is no longer a Leftist.
In 1988 1.4 million acres of the Greater Yellowstone Basin burned. The press had a field day criticizing the parks burn policy.
Yellowstone rebounded to be better than it had been since the last big fire in the 1700’s.
EnviroNAZIS will never understand how nature actually works.
Woodlands need to be selectively logged or left to burn.
There are only two options.
Yes logging used to thin the trees so those left grew into big healthy trees, cattle and sheep grazing kept the brush from being overgrown. There were of course fires but not the infernos we have now.
Environmentalists have stopped logging and grazing in many areas and in areas it is allowed not enough is allowed to make a difference. Trees grow so close together they end up being unhealthy toothpicks, so close together it encourages insect and diseases to spread rapidly, old grass, brush, unhealthy trees burn like an inferno.
The blame is more on the courts than the government- in the beginning the enviros sued the government to gain policy changes in forest and other public land management. Over the years more lefties have been hired by the Department of Interior, Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management to the point the enviros control those agencies. The takeover was done with activist judges and lawsuits though.
Now the government agencies have mismanaged the lands for so many years it has become obvious. There are programs being implemented now to change the management. Contractors are hired to thin trees, brush. The logging companies and ranchers paid the government fees under the system the enviros wrecked.
That link not working.
Lets try the National Park Service site.
That’s the dumbest thing I have heard regarding this. California is spending more money than they are getting from the feds.
What is a crime is letting these fuels collect, the government should be sued as a public nuisance for not maintaining their property. If only they could.
Watched THE BURNING FOREST and RING OF FIRE (1961) the other night. i remember seeing the Manti-La Sal forest on fire back in 1955.
The Sierra Club started this enviro nonsense. Would please me greatly if people who lost homes & others sued all the ENVIRO groups who stopped the timber harvests & allowed the ‘roadless’ policies.
UNTIL ALL these groups get put out of business permanently, this country will burn & will lose it’s farmers & ranchers.
California is spending more money than they are getting from the feds.
Trump cut off some funding to sanctuary cites so calf has less money to abuse.
