    • I think wild fires have become a serious issue. We can clearly see that in Australia now. California has had a few terrible fires in the past years due to the state being in the middle of a drought. It’s an issue that has been hard to address given that it’s hard to get rid of the effects of a drought.

    • Adam, thank you for sharing this piece about wildfires. As someone who is from Montana I consider myself fairly familiar with the disastrous effects this massive fires can have. Not only are they often started from undetected causes, they often times become impossible to contain due to inclement weather and winds. An article that I found interesting about wildfires talks about the people based in Montana and elsewhere in the country who fight these massive fires. https://www.fs.usda.gov/science-technology/fire/smokejumpers/missoula

    • Dear, Adam
      I am intrigued by your post because wild fires are a topic not a lot of people talk about or really look into. I think people should read what you wrote because it gives a lot of information not everyone knows. One thing you said that stands out to me is “There has been state legislation to limit wildfires, although maybe not enough.” I think this is a good point because if they were doing something about it there wouldn’t be so many. This reminds me of the times I have passed by big fires and there isn’t a lot being done about it. Thank you for your project. I look forward to what you write next because you are really smart and a good writer.

      I am surprised and glad you wrote about fires because a lot of people are overlooking these dangerous fires up in northern California and these fires are polluting the air even more. They are also destroying homes of people and animals. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “I think it’s also important for not only myself, but everyone in California to spend a small amount of time researching what to do in the case of a wildfire.” I agree with you that people need to know what to do just in case a wildfire happens and they need their leave their homes because California is very dry and a fire can start anytime. Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I think fires are a thing that people are ignoring and hopefully your next post is about something that is being ignored or no being focused on.
