The question I have is why are there so many and why are they so big? People have their hands in this one. There have always been fires, it is how Mother nature works but these are fires that are different. Sure I could be wrong but humans have messed up so much that I am always suspicious

Thanks, Cher!

@Kate: Wildfires have gotten bigger partly due to more extreme weather brought on by climate change. Congress had already cut funding for wildfire preparedness prior to this year, when there were further cuts due to the sequester. The American River fire in California was a case of arson.

Signed & noted... this is too important for us not to take action. And YES, we can make a real difference. How often have we passed a fire on the side of the highway, noticed it and kept going without contacting anyone. Think of the wildlife we can save with just one phone call.

As if the wild fires are not bad enough, after ripping through forests, the land is left bare and then when these terrible rain storms come the ground is completely eroded around river beds and the flooding takes place, as in Oklahoma. In the case of New Mexico, it has been so hot and dry for so long that the bad rain storms quickly strip the land, and rivers start overflowing. It is very scarey when this happens where you live, and have to be evacuated and don't have any idea when you may go home.My sympathies go out to the families of those who have lost their lives in Oklahoma.
Thank You Cher.
