Yup. There's lots of places here where Austrailia's wildfire problems could be repeated, though it's usually the owners themselves that cause the issue. Cedar shakes + old growth + no fuel mitigation = tinder box. My home municipality is very aggressive with fuel reduction programs, but it is fairly controversial, at least to the 'greens'.

Greenpeace sent me an email letter about the March 2 Day of Civil Disobedience talking about the people who died in Hurricane Katrina and in Australia. I wrote them back saying if the EPA had not prevented the damn in Lake Pontchartrain, the people who died in new Orleans would have lived. Also if the greenie policies had not prevented people from clearing and burning the bush, they would not have died.
Their answer:

Hi Eve,

Thank you for your message. We are astonished that people continue to build homes in environmentally unstable areas which inevitably result in damage. The answer is not to damn the rivers and destroy the bush but rather to not defy the rules of nature and build in environmentally unstable areas.

For a green and peaceful future,
