Wild fire pm is easy tor reduce. Allow responsible forestry to be conducted to include controlled burns.
When the climate's changing, controlled burns may not do it. As I've pointed out before, California's had controlled burns for a long time, but then we also had the worst five-year drought in the climactic record, that put enormous amounts of dead, dry fuel on the ground. Add to that the utilities had cut back on routine tree-trimming (not the first time this has happened) and you get infernos like the Tubbs (yesterday was the two-year anniversary) and Camp fires, or the current band-aid of PG&E doing precautionary power shutdowns for around 800.000 customers. They've moved my county's shutdown back from 12 noon to 8 p.m., but it all depends on what the winds do,
