How does Cameron view the role of fire in the environment?
“I think it plays in an important role. We haven’t been doing a very good job of maintaining its role, I guess. Right now we’re so far behind that it is—I don’t know if we can catch up at this point. I think the damage might be done and we’ll continue to deal with the massive fires that were having right now, into the future. Overall, I think it plays a very important role on the landscape.“
