HOW SEVERE FIRES IMPACT OUR SOIL
During the past two years, high-severity wildfires have been increasing. The 2013 Rim Fire burned at 38 percent high severity. For a fire to be considered “high severity” for soil, the temperature must exceed 950 degrees Fahrenheit; the Rim Fire burned at more than 1,450 degrees. Nearly half of the 97,000-acre King Fire in 2014 burned at high severity, much of it in a few hours in the Rubicon River watershed about 50 miles from Sacramento.
Severely burned soil not only impacts vegetation growth in the area, it also impacts habitats and infrastructure downstream. Since burned soil repels water instead of pulling it into the ground, the soil is no longer absorbent and stable, dramatically increasing the potential for landslides and sedimentation. In King Fire-impacted areas, the U.S. Forest Service predicts that more than 300,000 tons of topsoil will ultimately erode into the Rubicon River, causing siltation of prime aquatic habitats and water storage infrastructure. With California in its fourth year of drought, we cannot afford to let our reservoirs be filled with silt that contaminates drinking water systems and destroys vital wildlife habitat.
Agents outside of "normal fires" have been introduced to Northern California since the Santa Rosa fires.
The satellite was launched in 2007 as part of Russia's "Oko" ICBM
detection system. Norad, the North American Aerospace Defense

Declare State of Emergency and req billions from FED.

The answer is obvious why DEW induced fires are preferred over more common fire starting methods.
Can you figure it out?
That it didn’t happen?
