Wildfires are a part of how the environment works. Fire is intrinsically part of how the world works. But our actions as humans consequently have put stress on this cycle through the propagation of climate change and unhealthy forest management. Wildfires are not unfamiliar to many of us on the pacific northwest but it remains a problem for both our environment and life.
One vision I have for the future is the promotion of practices by the governments of the world for controlling wildfires. We need to make our governments AND citizens aware of this by educating them and communicating these ideals publicly through activism and education.
This can be with the increased and measured use of controlled burns and mechanical fuel treatment. Offering and expanding upon these levels of protection can be very important for us to properly take care of our forests. These methods can stop the slow march to the destruction of our environment.
