    On Monday, republicans widely mocked New California governor Gary Newsom (democrat) for his proposal to invest many millions to prevent future wildfires, saying it was a typical liberal policy to waste money.

    Two days later, democrats widely mocked Trump for stating there would be no further FEMA funding for wildfires unless states did something about it themselves.

    DOES THIS MEAN THE BIPARTISAN DIVIDE HAS BROKEN DOWN?

    Seems to me the two parties politic heads are in agreement but the people are not.

    Just introduce a bill to remove everybody's rakes. Threatening to take away the god-given freedom to rake a forest or grassland will result in a renewal of raking across the nation.

    No more bushfires.

    it really has reached that stage. Do you know marijuana consumption in california fell after it was legalized here? There is something very crazy about this state.

    Prevention is often better than a cure. But the best thing is, like life the vegetation will grow back more resistant than ever. Making it harder to burn until eventually, if a bushfire occurred the forest would stand a higher chance of surviving.

    Are you saying that burning creates a tolerance to future generations of vegetation until one day there will be burn resistant vegetation? If that were true, why do things still burn after all these millions of years?

    Goodness, sorry! Plant vegetation will grow even more plants than before, as well as thicker bark on trees. But they will never be fire resistant, just slow the fire down from spreading.
