President Donald (...) Trump's* idea about raking the forest floor is as stupid as it is wrong and foolish.
The forest litter; filters water, holds water, decomposes to soil, provides long term nutrients, helps cool the forest, provides a barrier to reduce and control fires, helps lock carbon into the soil from the air and so much more.
Want to start to control climate change, leave/grow forests, re-forest fallow land, let the natural cycle, which includes fire, return. The forests have developed over millions of years, who the hell thinks man can come up with a better system.

Life is like a PB&J sandwich. The older you get, the moldery and crustier you get.
