|Wildfires - National Security Risk
Adapting to Climate Change
July 4 in the U.S.A. is also the biggest day for wildfires, with 7,762 fires ignited on that date over the 21-year
study period, which study is charted here
Preliminary reports indicate that the year 2019 is no exception.
Wildfires throughout the western USA (and many parts of the globe) are unfortunately wrapped up with a quagmire of
inappropriate safety standards and a lack of safety infrastructure. We can do better, and sadly
is a leader in the wrong direction. Starting from prescribed burning that adds to global warming, causes
pollution and, based on studies, hardly ever helps to interfere with actual wildfires that occur
(only 1 percent success
). Other studies show that about one percent of prescribed burns actually escape control by
accident and cause more uncontrolled losses. Net effect: negligible protection benefit, added greenhouse gases,
increased health hazards of smoke pollution, in addition to the wasted cost of the operation itself.
Wildfires represent a heightened national security risk for four reasons:
Wildfires are easy to ignite by a simple match or incendiary device, cigarette, flare, etc., which can also be concealed with a timed
fuse, until the fire becomes large and dangerous. Simple rockets, such as common fireworks sold everywhere, can readily be launched
into dry brush or natural fuels. Remotely controlled drones, which are increasingly more popular, relatively cheap and accessible,
can also drop incendiary objects into more carefully selected targets. One simple match or discarded cigarette can cause millions
of dollars of damage. The warmer winds and thereby more desiccated natural fuels are ready accomplices.
Assets at risk include our precious forests and housing, as well as many observatories, communication towers, radar antenna, wind
turbines, water tanks and military defense assets that are strategically placed on mountains, hills, valleys and plains that
happen to be vulnerable to wildfires. Needless to say, many residents and more firefighters are put at greater risk on the
front lines on the ground and in the air, as well.
Added to the threat of domestic terrorists who may, in some cases, be mentally aberrant, as well as increasing numbers of
who squat in or near the wildlands and who frequently start fires for cooking or to keep warm, there are also those who are
motivated by groups like al Qaeda to engage in lone wolf attacks, including setting forest fires, as discussed in an article in
Climate change could take a serious toll on the U.S. economy by expanding by 50 percent the area that wildfires burn —and raising
projected damages by tens of billions of dollars a year by 2050, based on a study published by
NRDC in 2014.

According to USA Today nearly every day, someone is killed during a high-speed chase between police and a suspect. Almost half of the 11,500
people killed since 1979 have been bystanders or passengers in fleeing cars. For California alone, 1,612 deaths were noted in various situations.
In 2015, 78 innocent bystanders were injured by LAPD persuits, the largest tally since 2005 when 61 people were injured, as reported by
the Los Angeles Times. Could a
Chase Alert System reduce the risk? Efforts to
improve safety in police pursuits by various means including training, regulations and new GPS tracking technology are also advocated by several
