Why We Should Let Some Wildfires Just Burn Away


One thing I don’t get is why some people decide to build homes in wildfire areas, and expect to be protected.  Wildfires have been happening for thousands of years across the Western USA, and its nature’s way of getting rid of the old and dead growth and letting new growth occur.  When wildfires are controlled, that old and dead growth just builds up and over time that could lead to a massive wildfire.  In this video from Tom Scott, you get to see helicopter above the forests of British Columbia.  You also get to learn why humans preventing wildfires is never a good thing.
