The Forest Service doesn't understand why crown fires have no problem burning through live fuels with high moisture content? I thought this is at least partially due to volatile oils in pine needles.
It's only a matter of time until marijuana becomes legal, but the retrograde thinkers in the legislature and the DEA continue to cling to outdated and untrue notions about the plant. It's shameful that people who probably have a few (or more) drinks now and then are so upset that marijuana has legitimate medicinal uses.
Excellent letter - mountain bikes and (god forbid) mountain bike races have no legitimate place in the wilderness.

Well Steve, some shop owners during the Los Angeles riot precipitated by the police beating of Rodney King protected their businesses from being burned by rampant rioters with AR-type firearms - so that's one reason to have one. Also, the AR-16 has been called the militia weapon of our time - and we have the Second Amendment right to own and carry guns. During civil unrest, the AR-16 (or M-16) or a similar weapon may be required to defend oneself and his home. So don't fret too much over the issue.
Spoken as a mind-numbed true believer.
There's simply no correlation between carbon dioxide levels and global temperatures. If CO2 causes warming, why did the earth cool 1945 - 1977, as CO2 output increased drastically?
Due to the logarithmic effect of carbon dioxide's heat absorption, its ability to trap heat declines rapidly with an increase of the gas in the atmosphere. Examining the earth's climate history, there are many examples in which rises in CO2 went hand-in-hand with declining temperatures. Many other factors have a greater effect on the climate.
So the outcome of this fact is that by the time the earth reaches the 22nd century, and CO2 is at 620 parts per million, the temperature rise caused by this will be only 0.2 deg. C.
The earth is now in its 21st year without any statistically significant warming, according to the best data source - satellite monitoring data.
The NOAA, which monitors global temperatures, plays notoriously loose with the facts, and has changed the data to provide the appearance of warming, when there isn't any.
