#1 I think a variation on Kornbluth's Marching Morons population reduction scheme would do it. Announce that an efficient cellulostic ethanol process has been developed. Build giant incinerators and announce that states need to "send in their deadfall wood" to get in on the kickbacks, er, subsidies. There will not be a stick the size of a golf pencil left in the woods by sundown.

#3 I recall talking with a fellow with the U.S. Forest Service about the 2012 about the fires in Plumas Co., Ca. He said the policy had changed regarding controlled burns as the result of pressures by environmentalists. He said the risk of such fires could be significantly reduced by controlled burns. The rank and file understood this.

#5 of the fires currently burning in CA, two arsonists have self identified

also, a lot of the land in CA that is burning is not managed by the Forest Service but instead by the US Bureau of Land Management or the various State agencies -- they may have similar policies as the Forest Service or maybe even more strict

#6 Two things: 1) pretty damn sure the new regs apply across all fed agencies - that was the point. 2) since 2012 CA has experienced wild fires every month of the year.

#7 Given as how the environazis won't let the DOI or BLM spray for bark beetles our forests are dying out
There are about 125 million dead trees in the various forests in California caused by the bark beetle. You can go into the Sequoia National Forest and the is utter desolation and few trees
