I'm assuming (a) the fire suppression strategies were widely supported by people of all sorts of conservation beliefs, and (b) no one could have foreseen the chain of events that led to the situation currently, and if they had no one in power would have listened, and (c) yes, we need more federal dollars for basic research in all fields -- tell your elected officials that we need to spend much, much more on taking care of what we have and less (='none') on pillaging the environment to make the rich richer.

20/20 hindsight, and all that.
