    I hope you guys enjoy this video! It's obviously quite an enormous topic that people will spend years studying condensed down into a ten-minute video so this isn't the comprehensive guide to stopping wildfires but for those that know nothing about wildfire suppression techniques I hope this will be interesting and informative!

      Wendover Productions could you give us a vid on controlled mining explosions?
      I’ve been curious on the subject due to the Amazonia wildfires and that got me thinking on those very long controlled explosions that are used in mining. They seem to move a lot of dirt in a very short amount of time; question is, are they cheap and easy to deploy?

      I like your videos. This one was good too. Just one issue. You made it sound like Smoke Jumpers work for CalFire. They don't. CalFire has no Smoke Jumpers. The Redding Jumpers work for the U.S. Forest Service, a federal resource. State, local, and federal resources all work together in the mutual aid system, but the distinction is important to a lot of people. Keep up the good work!

                    They should have a bulldozer on hand so that way they can plow the control line. Making the line wider in a shorter period of time. Then they can take the logs and haul them away from the fire

                                                        The Amazon is not "burning out" people. Wildfires happens there naturally and right now there is nothing out of the ordinary. And it's not as big as they are reporting, it's all fake news.

                                                          It is out of the ordinary. There is waaaaay more wildfires than what is the normal rate. The amount is inexplicable even with the dry season. Its not even peak season cause that is in September.
