Let's get serious about wildfires

Full story: Ruidoso News
We have five seasons in New Mexico - the usual four, plus fire season. Even if you're not close to the blaze, chances are you've experienced smoke and haze. Full Story

Let us get serious about three things concerning wildfires:

Our bold firefighters cannot stop fires with the weak help the Obama environmentalsts have given us.

Their answer is to ban all from forests except illegal aliens.

In ABQ, their answer is to ban e-cigarettes.

This god-forsaken-environtmentalist void must be expunged before they take us all down in their perdition bound hanbasket.

I'm no Obama fan but your assertion is puckie. Its not his fault some clown tosses a cigarette, or an electric one or blows off fireworks or leaves a campfire unattended. Place blame where its due.

I find it most amusing how fools like you try to blame wildfires on environmentalists. I'm sure you also think that human-induced climate change is a hoax.

Fact is, regardless of what you believe the cause may be, the last 12 months have been the warmest on record for the USA, and the SW USA is in the grip of an extended drought. Record heat plus severe drought mean wildfires, and no amount of ignorant right-wing rhetoric from blowhards like you will be able to prevent them. Don't like wildfires and smoke, better move somewhere else.
