What happened after greed entered the picture? Our wild forests are now little more than an artificially manufactured, manicured and chemical sprayed monoculture, controlled as a FOR PROFIT CROP that is ‘owned’ by private for profit corporations, even if the forested lands underneath them are technically 98 percent ‘owned’ by the federal government.
Yet, the fact that most forests are 98 percent ‘owned’ by the US government in one way or another, does not make any difference to President Trump, who blames ‘California’ for the forest fires.
Right wing blogs and experts blame environmentalists and the ‘government’ for girdling trees and spraying them with chemicals to kill them. Other right wing conspiracy experts blame energy weapons for starting fires and for killing people in cars.
