Here is a video you might find interesting. It features scenes from the chaparral as well as before/after pictures of wildfires.
The audio is excerpts from the Planning Commission meeting from January 9th. You can see my entry from the 10th to learn more about it. In this video you will hear a lot of testimony from experts and homeowners alike stating that clearing, masticating, burning large acreages of chaparral will do immense harm to the environment and will do absolutely nothing to make you and I safer. I might add that it will burn up many millions of dollars which could have been used for good. Instead it is being used for evil. That's your government, San Diego county. (You will hear one voice of reason from the Planning Commission, Michael Beck, who understands the great responsibility that is on his shoulders and who carries it with courage.)
I would like to thank Rick Halsey from the Chaparral Institute for all the hard work he put into making this video. You can find out more about the ongoing struggle to talk some sense into a cowardly and panic-stricken county government on his Slash and Burn page.
