    It wouldn't hurt, but first you'd have to get past all the smelly granolas, which ain't gonna happen.

    Honestly, California is so packed with leftist psychopaths that the state's best hope is to just sit back and wait for the fires to burnout somehow.
    Free speech is cool as long as it jibes with our program.

    fire has for a long time been nature's way of cleansing the land. the issue now is, people live all over the land.

    something like 99% of the fires in CA and OR have been by lightening. had there been controlled burns in strategic areas, there would be far, far less fuel for the fires.

    Caples Prescribed Fire on Sunday Continues Restoration Project

    Smoke will be visible from Highway 88 and Highway 50

    PLACERVILLE, Calif. – Firefighters on the Eldorado National Forest will burn 143 acres approximately four miles northwest of Kirkwood this Sunday if weather conditions allow. The two units to be burned are within an 8,800 acre multi-year prescribed fire project in the Caples Creek watershed. Depending on fuel consumption and other factors, it may take two days to successfully complete the burn operations. Visitors should not be alarmed by the smoke that will be visible from Highway 88 and Highway 50.

    “An incredible amount of work is needed before fire can be safely reintroduced into watersheds like this one,” said Forest Supervisor Laurence Crabtree. “This project involves constructing 25 miles of handline and a lot of thinning. Restoration partners make projects like this possible.”

    The upcoming prescribed fire is being accomplished through a partnership with the El Dorado Irrigation District (EID) and the Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC) with grant funding received by EID from SNC’s Watershed Improvement Program (Proposition 1). The Caples Creek watershed is rich in biological diversity and provides a vital community water supply for 110,000 people in EID’s service area.

    The area to be burned is on the northern ridge above Caples Creek near Buck Pasture and Hay Flat. Portions of Hay Flat Trail will be temporarily closed.

    Approximately 55 firefighters will conduct the upcoming prescribed fire using hand ignition within established control lines. Resources for the operation include 4 engines, 1 water tender, the Iron Mountain Handcrew (Crew 26), and the Eldorado Hotshots. The units being burned are part of a strategy for securing the ridge and the perimeter of the watershed to allow prescribed fire ignitions by helicopter in the future.

    Short term smoke is expected and may be present in the Lake Tahoe Basin, Carson City, or Reno with the prevailing southwest winds. Smoke may also occur in Kirkwood, Kyburz, Strawberry and Meyers due to the tendency for smoke to settle with cool air at night. Smoke sensitive individuals are encouraged to reduce their exposure by avoiding smoky areas, closing windows, or staying indoors.

    --------------------

    & this was the result: Caples creek fire

    A 3,435-acre wildfire that originated as a prescribed burn in the Eldorado National Forest has been 100 percent contained, the U.S. Forest Service said late Friday morning. ... The burn zone is on the northern ridge of Caples Creek, near Highway 88.Nov 1, 2019


    I was up there when they started the burn & then five days later the wind picked up..

    I was going up to a peak about 10,000ft & saw the smoke that was going down into the valley suddenly change & come up towards us, although we continued.

    Such is life now in the Mt's of Calif

    Northern California is a different story .....

    Bret and Heather again today talked about how it is suspicious both that the pattern of the fires indicates a large amount of arson and that the people in media are adamant that arson is such a small problem that it is not worth talking about, that those who talk about the possibility of arson are political driven fake news purveyors. Remember that with the Left now the ends justify the means, it is completely possible that a lot of these fires have been set by Leftists working to drive the Global Warming narrative, that they are such shit people that they have done this to us.
    BE BRAVE!
