MegaFires – Why wildfires have gotten worse and what we can do about it [Video]

Prescribed burns, log it, graze it or watch it burn? Watch Paul Hessburg explain in his opinion at a TED conference, the history of fires in America and how humans in hindsight have reacted wrongly in his opinion to fire management.

What he has to say does make sense. But are these the only factors? I’d personally never seen the correlation between how the older wood had tighter grain which supposedly kept it from burning as easily before. It does make sense that wood grain with more space between the wood grain would burn faster. How do you feel about what Paul has to say? Login and leave your comments below.
