YOSEMITE INFERNO A GREEN FIRE

 The forests of America have been saved in good faith or not from the ravages of traditional cool fire, grazing animals, natural fires and forestry thinning the stands since at least 1910 in some cases if not back into the 1870s has been the policy of those European migrants wanting to put the brakes on “human exploitation” by their definitions at least. Selling access to wilderness tourist destination and researching a man made ecology chronically denied essential and natural proceses of cool frequent fire and or mixed species megafauna activity seems accepted by the boffins and bureaucrats making autocratic decisions based on opinion.

In 2014 the USA the Sierra Club and environmental activists are celebrating 50 years of the wilderness Act with over 109M hectares preserved under the Act. Non human intervention is the credo. When Europeans stumbled on America in 1492 there were an estimated 47M Indians there and had been for about 14000 years at least and arguably living sustainably across the land and assuming some megafauna, top order predator, biodiversity regulator status with their hunting farming and cool firing activities. There were an estimated 60M-100M bison, 2M bighorn sheep, 50-100M caribou, moose, elk, several species of deer, bear, coyote, wolves, mountain lion, bob cats, plenty of birds otter beaver fish in the rivers and ocean…ancient stands of sequoia fire safe for 2500-4000 years. 

The Rim Yosemite fire currently raging is said started by a wilderness weed grower now turned into an illegal hunter. Bait for emotive venting of feelings. Either scenario indicates the fuel was waiting for the combination of circumstances of ignition inevitably one dry hot summer.

  1. But is this not an issue that is relevant for all parts of the globe? As we, the dominant species saddled with intelligence , do our best to shift the environment in our favour, thereby dis balancing it? What you describe is merely another chapter in this long narrative…
