Well golly gee, my consultants can whip their consultants any day of the week. And twice on Sunday. Were these people paid taxpayer money for this wild range of estimated costs?
After reading this article to my pet blind squirrel, Ralf. He requested a one way airfare to Tacoma for a job interview with Earth Economics.
The way Ralf see it, he has a greater chance of getting the facts correct far more good as the current people who were hired to give accurate and correct information.
Ralf, the blind squirrel evens finds a nut now and then.
The forest is priceless - to me, there is no monetary value on all the trees and life devastated by this enormous fire. I want my land back! I hate how we are even more restricted in "our" National Forest than we were before. The Rim Fire has been tragic.
@ rose ... That's exactly why I can not understand how so many people wear rim fire t-shirts like it was a rock concert or something to celebrate. It's like someone wearing an "I had an abortion" t-shirt.
All fires start small. The trick is to keep them that way by dedicated firefighters ready to respond in a couple of minutes. CalFire is such a model.
The brave firefighters of the USFS should be fulltime wild land firefighters and not Forestry Techs. Separating the many other sections of the USFS would allow them the funding and full focus on firefighting.
