I don't know if they practice controlled burning in California. Might violate some 2nd-hand smoke law.

I'm pretty sure the anti-smoking bleeding hearts are lobbying against controlled burns out here. They've already banned smoking in some cities, which I think is unfair and a violation of human rights. People should be allowed to choose if they want to be engulfed in another's cancer-causing gases.

Oh, yeah, sure. Thanks for clearing that up, Strawman. Clearly you aren't over the fire department in LA, or half our mountain range wouldn't have gone up in flames.

Well, at least the BBC in UK knows about prescribed burning in Yosemite. Forward this to your neighbors.

Thanks Strawman. I've been advocating controlled burns to manage our forests for a while now, and the article will help.
