Talkback: Earth, wind and fire
I loved the way you brought these topics together in a piece (not sure about the nudists)& remember the great fires of Yellow Stone some years ago. I visited the park some 2-3 years later & the transformation was incredible. New tree growth was strong but the wild flowers were spectacular & the wild animals had benfited too & what's more you could see them. However, I worry greatly that areas of very old deciduous growth will not recover so well. In Greece in the Mount Pellion region ancient oaks & maples etc. will be many years in rcovering & in the meantime unscrupulous developers can take advantage of the newly cleared areas as in places like Borneo.
