I hope you guys enjoy this video! It's obviously quite an enormous topic that people will spend years studying condensed down into a ten-minute video so this isn't the comprehensive guide to stopping wildfires but for those that know nothing about wildfire suppression techniques I hope this will be interesting and informative!

@Marc Scott It's I think because the wiping of the top of the flame hits the other areas lighting them on fire gradually like a whip where the bottom areas have a higher probability of not getting touched as they aren't high enough to get whipped going downhill. You can have your magnetic oxygen idea but it's not as good as mine.

So the lesson is like, never to hike in a forest because you will get run down and caught by a fire avalanche that you cannot escape?

The idea of controlling a fire instead of putting it out is only valid in few places of the world, like California due to the kind of forest that exists there. Most forests are not supposed to have periodic fires and one burnt very hardly do they ever regrow to what they were without human intervention

The Yarnell Hill Fire was a wildfire near Yarnell, Arizona, ignited by lightning on June 28, 2013. On June 30, it overran and killed 19 members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots. Just one of the hotshots on the crew survived—he was posted as a lookout on the fire and was not with the others when the fire overtook them. The film 'Only the Brave' (2017) is a biographical depiction of the crew, their families, and what happened on June 30th. RIP Granite Mountain Hotshots, true American Hero's. They will not be forgotten.

All the bush fires up and down East Coast of Australia were ignited by a small group of militant enviro activists. The reason for doing this is to bring world attention to global warming & climate change ! They are using arson as a form of terrorism and anarchy

Okay, I am saying this right now. If I see one fucking joke about the Australian fires, I will not be impressed, and nor will most Australians or other supporters. Innocent people and firefighters are dying, Communities going up in flames, 1.3 Billion animals have perished and more are fighting for their lives. Not only do some people not understand this, but some people do not give a shit, and It pisses me off. If you think this is all fun and games and you can makes memes and jokes out of it, get out there and fucking fight these fires then. I’d like to see how long you’d last.

Instead of lightning strikes initiating a wildfire, it's 100-year-old power lines from PG & E that are poorly maintained and emit a shower of sparks whenever high winds occur. It's quite common in California.

I think government lock of action cause all massive fires. If I'll be up there I'll send a helicopter to dump water ASAP and prevent all the damage. Would you rather pay few hundred of thousands or see all the people desplace because the huge damage to their community's not to mention the damage to the fauna, it's not rocket science, greed will put us on instinsion 😤
