so, are you saying they are fair and intellectually honest when it comes to other topics, like blaming our current president for the budget crisis? even tho they likley voted for the guy who put us in this mess, twice? hehe. ah, good times, Liz, good times.
But what feeds the monster fires are the trees themselves. There are simply too many crowded too close together, a situation that scientists say was created in large part by a series of land-management decisions dating to the 1880s.
Livestock grazing stripped the forest floors of native grasses that helped maintain natural fire and slowed the proliferation of too many young trees. Loggers removed older trees critical for forest health, and scientists say the holes filled in too fast with young trees when lawsuits shut down the timber industry. Fire-suppression policies allowed the forests to grow even denser.

How do you think those burrowing owls and other critters you thought you were protecting are doing in their new crispy habitat?
