    Logging is essential for the health of a forest, AND the critters that live there.

    How many animals have been burned alive because tree hugging eco freaks don’t have a clue about how nature really works?

    CA's plan was to by mismanagement, deceit,taxes ect was to run everyone except the wealthy out of the state. Allowing only non documented people to remain to do the work for the rich. They are easy to control and work cheap. But like everything CA does the plan failed.
    The fire is CA's fault not the power company. In CA it should be clear to everyone the government is their problem.

    Well Tourist... good job. Maybe Colorado can take advantage of this as well as Wisconsin. (The only issue is that they still vote)

    Right you are RPD.

    In the 80's the Spotted Owl in the Western US and the Red Cockaded Woodpecker in the Southern US were labeled "conservation crisis" by the US Government and specifically the US Forest Service. This scam led to one of the worst destruction of jobs and forest practices in the US. Forest Products manufacturing plants (plywood, lumber etc) were closed in small remote towns especially in the west and people's lives were devastated and whole towns went bankrupt or simply became extinct.

    Studies were proven to be bogus and the facts were often shouted down by big government. The Bureau of Land Management grew stronger and stronger and many private timberland owners simply went away.

    This then led to the fools in Congress adding layers of Tax implications to large corporate Forest Products companies, forcing many of them to sell their lands due to the horrible taxation.

    Many believe the woodpecker and owl were never threatened but even today, their are groups that continue to lobby against tried and true forestry practices.

    The good news is, that many private timberland owners manage their forest lands much better than ever before and today we have millions more acres of sustainable forests due to entreprenuers and American exceptionalism. But sadly, states like California continue to impose regulations and tax laws against the private landowner of timberlands and it has resulted in this Fire Fiasco. FUBAR


    As a side bar 2 Rules that I learned in college regarding Forest Products and Forestry;

    Rule 1 on Forest Products;

    Keep Wood Inside Where it Belongs

    Rule 2 on Forestry

    Trees Die. Cut them down before they die so you can use them. Plant more trees.

    Easy Peasy FOREST TREESY!

    Good point Slippy!!

    And to that, Colorado may be be the next tinder box. It’s amazing the number of dead trees and I’m sure they will make great kindling.

    Looky here...like most politicians Newsom is a bought and paid for POS.

    "But Newsom's 2018 campaign*took $58,400 from PG&E, and the political spending group "Citizens Supporting Gavin Newsom for Governor 2018" took $150,000,*ABC10*reported in July.
    That's a total of $208,400"

    The Madison libtards themselves refer to the capital city as "The Peoples' Republik of Madison." I think they have adopted such a bizarre love for communism, that one day the Gurnsey cows themselves will simply en masse' walk to Minnesota...
