No. Because instead of conservation, we've got a preservation mindset prevailing, and they tend to think that nothing, including fire ought to touch the sacred trees.
So they don't allow thinning or even periodic burns. So it builds up, and you eventually get this.
I have nothing but compassion for those who have to deal with these fires. But i also wonder who deliberately started over half of them. Everytime something big is about to go down on this planet, ""something"" sidetracks the Sheeple. Things are beginning to feel most Precarious these days.
