In case you find it easy to forget, here's a sobering piece (again, thanks BBC Nature!) about how wildfires in the western US have been made worse by an invasive species of grass. And back in June, Live Science reported on the link between "global warming" (here at HairOnFirePeople we call it "climate change") and the wildfires in Colorado this year.
So one bad influence - invasive species - makes another worse. I guess that's a tad off topic, but it sure brought be up by the short hairs.
