Wildfires are devastating to humans, wildlife and ecology. They also create significant damage to headwaters health with runoff into the streams and other waterways as well as sterilization of the ground from tremendous heat generated.
In short, we have a big problem with multiple effects, none of which any of us want to see happen. I believe the solution is biomass energy production. This to me is a win-win solution; we avoid devastation to the environment, the forests, the headwaters, humans, and animals while providing jobs at the same time.
