Re: Sub/Alpine meadows, fires, & climate change

Re: Sub/Alpine meadows, fires, & climate change

Besdies, if they wanted to lie about it, they could just lie in the initial data. It would be more noticeable if people are thinking "I was there and that's BS" the day they report it.

The Forest Service developed a complicated relationship with prescribed burns this summer when two got out of control in New Mexico, sparking a 341,000-acre inferno, destroying hundreds of homes and displacing thousands.
