"Only you can prevent wild fires." 
  - Smokey Bear

     For over fifty years we have been told that wild fires can be prevented.  However, in recent years there have been more fires.  Millions of acres have burned.   Most people blame the weather.  They say it is hotter, drier, and there is less rain. Perhaps there are other reasons.
Maybe Smokey is wrong.
