Jon Keely, a scientist employed by USGS, has issued a new paper on the Causes of Large Shrubland Wildfires. You should read it. There is a lot of good info there. One of the things that caught my eye is this paragraph:
That would seem to run counter to the words of the head bureaucrat at the county who surprised a whole room full of scientists and land managers by claiming that young chaparral burns much slower than old chaparral, using that claim to justify burning many thousands of acres of old growth chaparral. (January 9th at the Planning Commission.) Perhaps someone can suggest that Mr. Oberbauer meet with Mr. Keely and get his head straightened out.
