    Biggest wildfires ever? Gee, these large fires can’t possibly have anything to do with forest management regulations now can they. I never believe people when they say things like “biggest ever”. Sounds like when I went fishing and caught the biggest ever lake trout. People were skeptical!

    Ah yes. Ecological succession. Beautiful. Brought a tear to my eye.

    The whole climate change scam is based on the premise that extreme weather events and wild fires never happened to the extent they do now. Thus the need to erase history and historical records. Even the aborigines of Australia and North America understood the concept of regeneration and intentionally set fires to old growth woods and plains grasses to spur the process on when needed.

    But many, if not most people today, who I am sure consider themselves far more sophisticated than anyone that lives their lives wearing a loin cloth, can’t grasp the concept. Quite simply the majority of those who have been born and raised in modern societies have not even spent a single night out in a wilderness alone, let alone lived with nature and off the land for any period of time. And yet they believe themselves to fully tuned and informed about nature.

    Australia’s eucalyptus trees mostly depend on fires for their continuing existence. Burning the undergrowth adds minerals back into the soil and gives space for new trees to sprout and grow.
    Nor do the blackened trunks collapse into rot; within a month green shoots grow from those trunks, and if the trunk is destroyed many species have an underground food reserve which sprouts a new trunk.
    The great fires in 1855 and 1939 (far worse than anything in the last 30 years) burnt huge areas yet the States most affected are the most forested again. Modern fires are made bad by mismanagement by the bureaucracy preventing undergrowth clearance and letting fire breaks become overrun with weeds and bushes.

    Did you find any Morel mushrooms up there??
    Can’t tell you where to look, but it’s a pretty good harvest due to the fire…..

    The Chinchaga fire, also known as the Wisp fire, in British Columbia and Alberta was the biggest known forest fire. 3.5 to 4.2 million acres burned and caused high altitude haze along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States.
