@zede: I will concede that you were responding to the comment made and not the article, my response was related to the article which focuses specifically on the BC wildfires of this past summer, and drawing global implications of these local fires to causes/conditions/consequences in other regions would be foolish.

@zede: ummmmm....the article that these comments are based on is about this past summer's BC wildfires

@zede: actually in Canada it's typically less than half: https://s3.amazonaws.com/chartprod/dkiGFa3vhtudxa9HH/thumbnail.png , and more related to larger scale climatic effects like the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (http://research.jisao.washington.edu/pdo/) which act as larger drivers for the fire cycle. Multiple years of warmer, drier weather result in drought stressed trees. Interior BC has a particularly short natural fire cycle, which is important for regeneration of the ecological communities. Lodgepole pines for example which require fire for the cones to germinate. Unfortunately, the coexistence of communities in these ecosystems makes control of the natural fire cycle difficult to preserve houses and keep people safe.

@d-man: I must have misinterpreted you saying this: This is where the materials used in building the place you live are from or do you live in a tent? How is that not implying that people have a problem with logging?

@d-man: no, you brought up the argument that people don't want logging, but need it for the homes they live in. I characterized that people aren't complaining about the impact of logging, but in this case being referred to by the previous comment, logging is occurring in the area that people don't seem to be upset about, but are upset about someone riding a bike in the area on unsanctioned areas. I was clarifying what the particular logging issue was in this case, related to the watershed impacts, as your comment with Alberta companies missed the specific logging the original comment referred to. And as he clarified, that's not the point of his comment. Flood impact is the issue with this logging, not logging in general, and yes people are aware of what their homes are made of, and that still isn't the issue. And in this case, it is a BC company that was granted permission to log the watershed, the same area this video was specifically filmed in.

@d-man: People don't have an issue with logging. In this case, a BC company (not really relevant in my opinion) was granted permission to log the upper Highwood drainage. That is an issue for a whole host of reasons, but namely logging in a sensitive watershed. The watershed that has a very notorious history of flooding: Flood events of exceptional magnitude occurred in 1894, 1899, 1902, 1908, 1912, 1923, 1929, 1932, 1942, 1995, 2005 and 2013. Most recently during the 2013 Alberta floods, thousands of people in Alberta were ordered to evacuate their homes after the rise of the Highwood River, Bow River, Elbow River and numerous others.Three people died as a result of the flooding of the Highwood River. So by all means, go log the shit out of somewhere that isn't going to exacerbate this problem. There's several of these areas not in steep watersheds with history of flooding several downstream communities.

2017 Fall/Winter Gear Guide - Gear Essentials
at long last, thank you Kitsbow. After years of sweating through the sleeves of so many shirts, you have provided wrist vents. How many times have I forgone long sleeve jackets to save me from my sweaty wrist embarrassment. Want to go for a ride? Well, it's a little cool, so I had better not, lest my riding group mock ol' sweaty wrists for the rest of eternity.

Trek Session 9.9 DH 27.5 - Review
The sizing comment by the reviewer is interesting, at 5'11", he represents a slightly taller than average male, yet he would pick an xl for his personal bike. Why is the sizing of all major bike brands not accommodating? All the dh world cup riders seem to be "up-sizing" as well. Why can't frame sizing better represent what the riders are seeking?
