    California Fires

    Something about those fires isn't kosher, I have no idea what, but something isn't right. They show us the fires, but at this point I haven heard why and what causes those. Yes I understand the high winds, but a fire has to be started at some point, and how and why are they starting so close in time together.

    Here is a video showing some of it, there are others if you search.

    It's the dry brush. The environment is designed to burn. It gets worse every year.

    Have family our there and it is a natural occurrence.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    PG&E is saying they may have started a few. Some arcing from power lines. Maybe some overgrown brush causing lines to go down.

    Yeah... this is out there... however:

    The public is being conditioned to accept power outages... in the name of safety of course... always has to be an excuse to sell to the public!

    And if we are dumb enough to let TPTB move us to only ONE source of energy (electricity)...
    Then we deserve 3rd world status (power outages all the time)...
    For giving the govt that much power over our lives.

    Power is an essential of civilized life. California is going to legislate itself out of statehood.

    People cause 80% + fire; cigarettes, gas powered tools, hot mufflers, welding, fireworks, campfires etc. The timing has to do with dryness and winds

    Here are some good ideas:

    Don't live in areas prone to wild fires.
    Don't build your home on a cliff.
    Don't build your home in a flood plane.
    Don't build your home in a tornado ally.
    Don't build your home on a fault line.
    Don't build your home on a volcano.

    If you do, and sheit happens (just a matter of time), don't complain and expect tax payers to cover it.

    Geez CW...

    You can sum up that whole list with this:

    Do NOT think like a DIM!
