Heavenly Mountain Resort is protesting portions of the U.S. Forest Service's 15-year land management plan for Lake Tahoe.
The wildfires charring the West again this summer have reignited the debate over what is fueling the horrific infernos: man-made climate change or the proliferation of overgrown, diseased forests.
"The largest issue we now face is how to adapt our management to anticipate climate change impacts and to mitigate their potential effects," Mr. Tidwell told the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
Thomas Tidwell, chief of the U.S. Forest Service, told a Senate committee June 4 that the wildfire season lasts two months longer and burns twice as much acreage than it did 40 years ago.
