Fighting it all is a powerful alliance of Republicans, Democrats, Old West
and New West -- all the people who have homes in the woods, the recreation
and tourism businesses that don’t want smoky skies and shut-down forests,
cities that don’t want reservoirs dirtied with fire runoff, loggers who don’t
want trees to go to waste, ranchers who don’t want livestock forage to burn,
the private firefighting industry that taps the cash flow, the politicians
who serve all of them, and the agencies that want funding, chiefly the U.S.
Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management and the National Park
