Comments from Australia - seems appropriate
He cited an example. In Australia, fires that are too hot actually allows the flammable undergrowth to germinate more. When early Europeans tried to copy Aboriginal techniques by lighting fires, they made the fires too hot, and got even more of the flammable scrub. So, they tried again. And again.
"Even though people can see the Aborigines doing the fire control, and could see the benefits, they couldn't copy it," he said.
Now, the juxtaposition is clear.
"Where the Aboriginal people are in charge, they're not having big fires," Gammage said. "In the south, where white people are in charge, we are having the problems."
