Which do YOU think were the most significant stories about wildfire that occurred in 2011?
As we have done for the last 2 years, we will be listing the most significant news stories about wildfire that occurred during the last year and will ask you to cast your vote in a poll for those that you think are the MOST significant. As before, we won’t list the fatalities, because I don’t think any of us want to rate one fatality as more significant than another.
I am working on the list now, but you have a chance to contribute before it is complete. In a comment below, let us know which stories you think were most significant in 2011. If you want to, you can copy and paste into your comment the web address to the story. Hopefully the incident will have been covered on Wildfire Today, but if not, we’d certainly like to know about it.
Nominate your significant stories by the end of the day on Saturday, January 14, 2012 in a comment below. I will evaluate your nominations, compare them with what I came up with, and in a completely arbitrary and capricious manner, decide which ones make the final poll. On January 16 I’ll post the new poll, and then you can vote.
