Humans also stopped the rampant prarie fires that used sweep across the midwest all of the time as well as the buffallo migrations that tore up larg swaths of grassland....

As well as putting out a large number of naturally started forest fires too....

But that is seen as a negative by the enviroidiots.

Naturally caused fires are essential to a balanced and healthy ecosystem.

In many cases, the heat from fire causes seeds to germinate, promoting the growth of various plants and fauna.

The lack of naturally occurring fires is primarily why many of the recent fires were so devastating. The undergrowth and dead wood hadn’t been cleared out, creating firestorms of epic proportions.

The “enviroidiots”, envirowhackos, environazis, etc. won’t permit the USFS to conduct controlled burns to clear this stuff out. And when firefighters or residents are killed, hundreds of structures burned to the ground and 100’s of millions of dollars spent on putting out fires, they are “strangely silent”.

There is quite a large difference between conservationists and environmentalists.
