Have you seen the commercial with Smokey the Bear saying "only you can prevent forest fires"? Every time I see it I laugh because it's so stupid. I mean it really is when you think about it. I'm only in 4th grade and even I know that the four main causes of wildfires are lightning, volcanic eruptions, spontaneous combustion, and rockfall sparks. I don't have any control over any of those things. I thought the causes of forest fires was pretty basic natural science studies stuff that most people know. Actually I learned about the four causes in scouts but I already knew about lightening. Everyone should already know lightning causes a lot of fires and nobody controls lightening. Although it'd pretty cool, like Zeus or something. Even the fires that are caused by humans are still out of the control of most normal people, like power lines. Wouldn't it make more sense to just tell kids to "leave no trace" like they do in my scouts when we go camping. Make sure you aren't lighting fires in the woods without water near by and don't throw lit cigarettes in the woods. That's the stuff people can control. So no, you are not the only person who can prevent forest fires. Not everything bad that happens to the earth is our fault. A lot of it is natural causes. Aren't grown up supposed to know these things? Good grief.
