Prescribed Burns: An Unhealthy Fascination With Fire?
Preparedness & Survival
by Capt. William E. Simpson, AUGUST 15, 2018

OPINION

Recently, I read yet another trendy white-paper ("concept paper") about wildfire and smoke titled; 'Can Air Quality Management Drive Sustainable Fuels Management at the Temperate Wildland–Urban Interface?'  hereinafter 'Concept Paper' (http://www.mdpi.com/2571-6255/1/2/27).  Even without reading between the lines, the abstract (along with posits from the body of the paper) shed light upon the arguable fact that some scientists are continuing to move farther from truth,...

Can Catastrophic Wildfire And Smoke Be Controlled By Logging As Posited By Sec. Ryan Zinke?
Preparedness & Survival
by Capt. William E. Simpson, AUGUST 11, 2018

OPINION

In a recent USA Today OP-ED article, the Secretary of the Department of the Interior Ryan Zinke posited his solution for catastrophic wildfires and smoke. He mentions 'pine needles' as the source kindling but shortsightedly fails (intentionally?) to highlight the major and leading roll that grass and brush plays as both kindling and fuel for the massive fires that have and continue to burn and produce...

Toxic Wildfire Smoke Killing Californians And Oregonians - Wild Horses Still In BLM Corrals
Preparedness & Survival
by Capt. William E. Simpson, AUGUST 5, 2018

OPINION

Catastrophic wildfire is not normal wildfire. Why?  The answer is actually quite simple and easily overlooked; too much grass and brush because of our depleted population of grass and brush eating herbivores (deer in CA & OR are down about 2.2 million animals) in and around forests and rural areas that are now choked with grass and brush.  These now missing large-bodied herbivores (in CA &...

The Carnage Has Begun - *BLM* - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap With Tax Dollars
Preparedness & Survival
by Capt. William E. Simpson, JULY 30, 2018

OPINION

Anybody who says or believes the corralled American wild horses aren't being sold into the slaughter industry in Mexico and Canada where it is legal is misinformed.   The BLM has already lied to Congress, in a writing (May 2018), when they submitted a document to the U.S. Congress titled:  'Report To Congress - Management Options For A Sustainable Wild Horse And Burro Program' to wit: On...

Are Environmentalists Using a Double Standard?
Preparedness & Survival
by Capt. William E. Simpson, JULY 25, 2018

OPINION

The following quote is extracted from a The Center for Biological Diversity press release dated June 13, 2018: "SALEM, Ore.— Five fishing and conservation groups sued the Oregon Department of Forestry today for poor logging and road-use practices in the Tillamook and Clatsop state forests that harm threatened Coho salmon through landslides and erosion into streams that violates the Endangered Species Act." Per the full press release, the people ('Contacts')...

Klamath River Dam Removal - Greed & Intellectual Dishonesty vs. Common Sense & Citizens Rights
Preparedness & Survival
by Capt. William E. Simpson, JULY 21, 2018

OPINION

It seems that by definition under law, KRRC should be denied any 401 DEQ water quality permit that would facilitate the destruction of the J.C. Boyle Dam in Oregon. I refer to ORS 468B.005’s definition of pollution. And the sediments alone, not to mention all of the sequestered anthropogenic pollution is more than enough to easily deny KRRC's permit. But it's even...
