Meh; we're following Sweden's lead and trying to develop herd immunity against extremely exothermic oxidation. It's scientifical.

I patiently await the rabid anti-Californians' responses to this.

Another reason I am glad I am not in California.  Here, the fire season is starting to wind down with the shorter days and cooler nights.  In California, theirs is just winding up.

Stay safe folks.

They do that right before every harvest.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugarca​n​e#Cultivation

Sugarcane is harvested by hand and mechanically. Hand harvesting accounts for more than half of production, and is dominant in the developing world. In hand harvesting, the field is first set on fire. The fire burns dry leaves, and chases away or kills venomous snakes, without harming the stalks and roots. Harvesters then cut the cane just above ground-level using cane knives or machetes.

You were warned to rake the leaves, fire-deniers.

No their rants are less cray in general. I prefer the real brain damaged works when I read the ramblings of nuts.

Hey I did raked up the pine needles and got rid of the dead brush at my cabin just like they tell us to every year in the national forest. They even have helpful fire crews that haul the brush to their chippers. Which is nice.

"Fire Denier" would be a good band name.

We heard that heat will kill the coronavirus and we are trying here but people still gotta complain!

You wish we were doing that well.  Sweden has nearly Zero deaths the days and the did not destroy their economy.  But yeah...explain again how they did it so much worse because compared to a lot of the world...they go it right.

/stop building your homes in forests or clear enough area around them to not be an issue...also choose the correct building materials.  If not learn to loose all your material goods and maybe your life.  Not hard...but is for the west coasters.

That's at least three relatively significant fires in 30 days or so for SoCal.
