“ The agencies that are burning have to do a study before proceeding to make sure they aren't damaging the environment, Collamer said.”

So, while we waste CalFire’s time doing studies to see if burning some wood will “damage the environment” do we have plans to “do a study” about the next wildfire, brought on with the assistance of BAAQMD’s bureaucracy, to make sure that fire doesn’t “damage the environment”?

Is there a way to get BAAQMD’s priorities right, and out of the way of the people who are trying to save our properties and our lives?

If you think the air quality is bad because of a controlled burn, just wait until you see what it’s like after the western hills go up in flames.

There are sustainable ways to get rid of the fuel other than burning.

Stop living in the 1800's.
