7 million acres in the US have
burned this year, more than triple
last year. Presently
there are 8 states in which
80 fires burn.
2 million pounds of apples burned
this week in Washington, along
with apple trees.

The unprecedentedly hot and fast
fires have not been discussed in political debates.

The federal government has promised
200 soldiers, a drop in the bucket.
The National Guards of states not
on fire should help the 8 states.

There should be massive airdrops
not of poisonous chemicals but of
water everywhere needed.

13,000 firefighters are at work
in California alone.

Media never give the number
of birds and wild animals burned alive,
for only possessions, pets and livestock are
government priorities.

In China over 50 firefighters
died in the 2 explosiums of
sodium cyandie.
