Title: Time to ante up funds to acclerate local forest restoration
Author: Staff, AZ Daily Sun
Subject: Prescribed burns, Economics, Ecological Restoration
Abstract: The revelation that a back-fire lit byfirefighters may have been the immediate cause of the inferno that swept through Los Alamos, N.M., earlier this month is no vindication of the National Park Service. The fact that the prescribed burn was lit at all is indictment enough. Subsequent lapses in judgment and procedure by unqualified personnel only set the stage for back-fires and other problematic fire control measures that should never have been necessary.
