This is a major rewrite of this paper. I updated this paper a little over a year ago, however the conditions leading to wildfires in the Western U.S. have changed radically this year, and a major rewrite is needed. Although some of the prior version will be reused, we will start by describing how conditions have changed.

Thanks for taking the time to update, John. I fear how often updates to this type of knowledge will be necessary as it seems the situation keeps getting worse and the leaders who should be addressing the problems are falling short time and again.

Any solutions have been and will be incremental, and it is likely that the wildfires in the west will continue to worsen over time. 

I will suggest one of these incremental solutions in a few weeks. 

More later.
