AFTER THE SMOKE CLEARS…

 Once upon a time, some years ago I lived in Paradise, CA. which was a beautiful town.  I remember that many times I walked the flume along the Feather River which had been built slightly above the river by the electric company.  And since the Camp Fire just went through the town I wonder if that portion of the forest had also vanished. The fire is one of the saddest burns ever, displacing so many people. The property, much of what is private, was covered with thousands upon thousands of evergreen trees.  Because of the devastation of the burn, there now needs to be a total reassessment of how forested public lands are managed and now we must forge ahead with a new vision of how lands and people must be protected from fire.  The previous forestry blueprint laid the groundwork for seasonal fires to move dramatically and rapidly to where they would not only burn uncontrollably, they would also burn for months until the rains came.  The infernos, then and now were still part of a policy that did not lend itself to proper preventative fire management which would include protective firebreaks and the thinning of trees, whether it be on public or private property.

   Around the year 2010 I interviewed the Tahoe National Forest supervisor who has since retired and he then shared how the management of the federal forests was actually an “experiment.”  So, there is no real science going on here, and with 300 million people in America at risk, previous policies which allowed fires to burn naturally from lightning strikes does not consider the risks involved and the safety of the people.

WHILE AMERICA BURNS: SMOKE N’ MIRRORS

leafless_tree_by_lecorbeaugris-d4q8c6qWith the new 2016 fire season upon the west, wildfires are in full swing again. And just one year ago the U.S. Forest Service said that for the first time in its 110 year history it spends more than 50% of its annual budget fighting fires at the expense of other programs. So no longer do we have a real forest service agency fulfilling its core mission. It has become the fire department.

While there is much talk every year about the expenses and the causes and the effects of forest and range fires, those very same state and federal agencies who are paid to protect the land, only offer us smoke and mirrors. They never talk about solutions on how to save at least 10 million pristine acres from being charred every year. Yet, all the while, management offers excuses such as “climate change”, “drought”, growing development or budget issues that hide the real problems. Where are their solutions? They are present but the government and the mainstream media backs away from the full story.

The World Summit & The Climate Changers

The sky is falling while the world is a-buzz with the effects of warming trends and climate change. A little hot air here, and a little CO2 there will bring about the best loan sharks along with the world banking elite who will gladly “lend” their billions and services “at interest” to any nation reeling from the greenhouse effect. But, how many “let it burn” forests do the climate changers need each year to accomplish their warming and trendy goals?

Now then, the world’s political leaders will gather in New York on the 23rd of September for a special summit. U.N. Climate Secretary Ed Davey was quoted as saying the following;

“I think there’s a lot of support for having something that is legally binding, it’s just the extent of what is covered by that, is where the negotiations will be.”

Legally binding? Now, doesn’t that kind of mean the world’s taxpayers will get hit when governments sustainable targets are NOT MET? I’m sure it does. Has anyone heard of the backdoor gas tax? It’s been
talked about.

Ok, so factories and automobiles have been targeted as those mighty greenhouse agents causing higher temperatures. And then there is the three year drought in California that is affecting the rain and snow. But does this theory truly prove that climate change will be here for a long, long time?

Interestingly enough, environmental science is suspiciously lacking in the auto/factory category, because when the dots are all connected we find that one of the largest contributors to CO2 (carbon dioxide) levels in the atmosphere happens to be wildfire smoke!

Hello! Why is this always missing in most of the “climate” studies? More
