Title: Using parallel strategies to promote change: forest policy making under George W. Bush
Author: Vaughn, J., * Cortner, H.J.
Abstract: In 2000, 122,827 wildfires burned 8.4 million acres of United States forests-Including the highly publicized Cerro Grande fire in New Mexico in which 250 structures were destroyed. In 2002,7.1 million acres were burned and 21 firefighters lost their lives. Three states, Arizona, Colorado, and Oregon, had their largest fires of the twentieth century, and the images of more than a thousand homes burning and forest devastation were deeply imprinted upon the public's memory.
