Forest fires

So it’s back up in the nineties here in St. Louis again and what topic do I pick to post about but, fire which in turn always reminds me of the book “Fire Season: Field Notes from a Wilderness Lookout” by Philip Conners.

Reading this article tonight however, entitled “Let it burn: Smokey was wrong. You can’t prevent wildfires, and you shouldn’t try” b over at the Grist was an eye-opener to say the least. The most surprising part was the fact that climate change plays a rather minor role when it comes to forest fires. Learn something new everyday.

Sincerely-
