Record-Breaking Fires

California is on fire again, this time with the Mendocino Complex larger than anything in the past.

Well, that's what happens when you cut down almost all of the 200-foot-tall trees that wring water out of clouds, and you drain most of the water out of the rivers.  The land dries out.  Duh.  Also, don't build houses in fire chimneys just because the view is nice.  It's nice because nothing sensible wants to live in a fire chimney.
