“Their theory is that it’s a war, and when you’re in a war you’re going to have collateral damage,” Stahl said. “It’s the fire-industrial complex, the nexus between corporate and government agencies combined, with really no interest in ending making warfare on wildfires. It’s ever-increasing.”

What does this even means? what would be an interest in ending making warfare on wildfires? to let them spread naturally? to just accept they are disaster and do nothing?

Why put the responsibility of avoiding wild fires on those companies anyway? wild fires are being deeply affected by climate change, so reducing them becomes a global effort, not something any company or even any individual country can tackle on its own.
