A Warning From the Terrorists
(image by Homeland Security Warns of Terrorist Wildfire Attacks)

Homeland Security has warned that terrorists intend to use wildfire against their enemies in the United States and elsewhere around the world. An insane unnatural build-up of forest fuels the past 120 years has been promoted by incompetent policy makers in United States Forest Service, Park Service, BLM and other public land management agencies.

An article in Public Intelligence states: "The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security and fusion centers around the country are warning that terrorists are interested in using fire as a weapon, particularly in the form of large-scale wildfires near densely populated areas."

A terrorist wildfire attack is likely claims Homeland Security, but the agency does not seem to realize or want to tell the public that terrorists in a plane under drought condition and high winds can lay a wall of flame a hundred miles long in a hour creating wildfire devastation equivalent to the fire-bombing of Dresden and Tokyo. Such an attack could happen so quickly that fire-fighting agencies would be overwhelmed in a matter of minutes, and in a couple of hours, millions of people could be trapped and die in an inferno with the power of multiple atomic bombs.

In the United States and around the globe, national and regional governments have fire codes in place so that fire hazards don't build up in buildings. But government Smokey the Bear misguided light fire exclusion policies going back decades have promoted just the opposite in our nation's forests and grasslands. This United States government 120 year old propaganda operation spread to other countries around the globe and has no scientific basis that fire is bad for the forest and grassland ecosystems.

This insane failed policy, begun in the early part of the 20th Century, and later was built around Smokey the Bear, the icon of a very successful policy of forest fire exclusion. Smokey lied and told us forest fires are bad for the environment and should extinguished. The untended outcome of the suppression of nature friendly, light cleansing fires, has been to create a global wildfire emergency as fire debris builds in the forest to catastrophic proportions. It does not matter who or what ignites the fire, be it terrorists, arsonists, lightning, or an escaped campfire. Catastrophic fuel loads will ignite sooner under drought conditions, same as a fire hazard buildup in a building.

These incompetent land agency administrators along with the fire suppression lobby in Congress keep asking for more money for more and more fire suppression resulting in higher and higher fuel loads. To add insult to injury every wildfire season monies get diverted away from fire prevention for the ever building immediate fire emergencies. The heads of the agencies are now acting like the proverbial deer in the headlights of the oncoming fire monster they themselves created.

I wrote Fire in Nature, A Fire Activists Guide, available for free on its website. It takes the reader back almost 500 million years to when oxygen levels rose and plants and animals not only adapted to fire but developed fire strategies to use fire to their advantage. The book then shows that man arose out of the fire adapted ecosystems of Africa and began to use fire over a million years ago, increasing the amount and diversity of fire ecosystems burned. This lessened the intensity of the fires through more frequent burning building ever more light fire diverse ecosystems.

Today modern man has lost the fire wisdom of the past and has created his own worst nightmare by working against nature rather than with nature. He must now use prescribed fire or controlled fire in fragmented light fire ecosystems. Fires can no longer roam as they once did, so the best we can do is simulate light natural fires for ecosystem health and catastrophic wildfire protection, for both nature and man. Will it take a terrorist wildfire strike of biblical proportions to bring the public to its senses so that governments will order a general fire emergency in the Western United States, Australia and Europe to reduce the catastrophic fuel loads through prescribed burning and other means?
