Science and sci- entific research have been taint- ed with political and emotional issues.For one hundred years there has been a policy of stop- ping every fire that happens. Yet, it is proven that fire is a ba- sic cycle in both for- est and prairie. The Bambi syndrome and the classic Smokey the Bear promotion injected emotionalism into the management of our resources.

If you think it is bad now, wait until the season is advanced, and all this comes to- gether into a perfect storm. It may be too late to stop the perfect storm from happen- ing, but we can always count on congress to do nothing, the fed- eral bureaucracy to do nothing, and the courts to do nothing to prevent the obvious frivolous suits that block necessary ac- tion.
