A Note On California

California Blue Ribbon Commission Delivers Final Report On Last Year's Wildfires

The head of Califoria's blue-ribbon fire commission says the state will have more deadly wildland blazes if "political conflicts" between environmental and fire agencies are not resolved.

Bill Campbell says fire agencies urge residents in wildland-urban interface areas to clear growth for several hundred feet around their homes. But other agencies forbid homeowners to do that.

I'm still not done reading the actual report (some blogger I am), but I came across this little item that gives some more specifics about how environmental laws conflict with fire protection. But this is still a one-source assessment, as Campbell is the one who wrote the introductory letter to the report that played up the environmental aspect so much more than the report's executive summary.
