Failure to clear brush aided Tahoe fire, officials say. The truth about who those officials are.

They are called the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency(TRPA), and they should be ashamed.

It was their short sighted policy of not letting Mother Nature take its natural course that has led to this disaster. They were more interested in keeping the trees than being safe. I heard one lady call in to a talk show yesterday and outline the steps she had to go through just to remove a dead tree from the roof of her home. It seems some squirrels may need the tree for some purpose.

In the article linked above, they talk about a defensible space to stop this kind of disaster from happening. What they fail to mention is how the TRPA acts like judge, jury and even GOD to the folks that live in this area and they cannot move a twig without a special permit.

This is a classic example of environmentalism gone wild. Now the beautiful Tahoe region is covered in soot and ashes and hundreds are without a home because some fools think we should never cut down another tree.

It’s time to stop this madness.
