I know what you’re thinking. “Yeah, they changed it from forest fires.” However, that’s not it at all. I’m talking about the bit before the bit at the end.

Nine out of ten. That’s 90%. So the vast majority of wildfires are caused by humans. I get that. Basically I should be careful with cigarettes, firecrackers, fireworks, roadflares, Duraflame™ logs, movie stunts, and toast.
But that still leaves 10% not caused by humans. If 10% of wildfires have no connection to me or anyone related to me closely through the evolutionary tree of life, I can only see one conclusion. Even I cannot prevent wildfires.
Time to head to Yellowstone with some matches…
