Take a couple of minutes to look at a series of 4 advertisements running currently in Australia. The final one puts the entire issue in perspective from the view of smaller nations. Australia’s Parliament is in a mess over the government’s position on the matter. This week five MP’s resigned rather than sign on to that country’s version of cap-n-trade.
Global warming as it relates to wildland fire budgeting is real. In a previous post I noted how scientists are trying to link future forest fire activity to the effects of “man caused atmospheric changes“.
As long as the government’s EPA and appointed meteorologists keep pushing this folly the Forest Service and other government entities with wildland firefighting forces like the Park Service, BIA and Indian Affairs will receive more funding.
