Man and beast alike are scrambling:

Eat a dick wildfire. Man figured out how to make rain better.
Last year's California wildfires burned 1,893,913 acres, killed 103 people, destroyed 17,700 homes and businesses and caused more than $3.5 billion in damages. This morning the Los Angeles Times reported this totally unexpected, totally surprising bit of news:

Last November's Camp Fire in northern California burned 153,336 acres, killed 85 people – three are still missing – and caused $16.5 billion in damages. We now know who to blame. Whatever it costs, PG&E power lines in mountain areas should be relocated underground.
PG&E power lines caused California’s deadliest fire, investigators conclude
I've been waiting for wireless power to make it big.
One day we'll have a wireless power grid
That sounds fairly preposterous and dangerous to humans. I'd imagine it would work for charging electric cars on the road, but replacing the AC power in every business and everyone's home is fantasy.
It's like power over ethernet and dinosaurs.
Just because they could do it, should they?

There's a county named after that annoying Drake phrase?
According to the 1969 third edition of Erwin Gudde's 1949 book California Place Names, Yolo is a "corruption of the Indian word Yoloy, signifying a place abounding with rushes." The book also notes a man named Yolo was "a captain of a rancheria at Tomales Bay in 1810." As for Drake's annoying "YOLO" phrase, it should actually be YLOO. "You only live once" implies that living once is the only thing we do. The word "only" should be next to the word it modifies. The expression should be "You live only once." We now return you to your regularly scheduled wildfire discussion.

A word of warning to this witless wonder: Wildfires are worse than wasps.
Man trying to kill wasps accidentally starts massive fire
AOL Video, Jun 13 2019
A just-released investigation reveals the largest recorded wildfire in California history was accidentally started by a rancher trying to kill some wasps. Investigators say the Ranch Fire started when the man came upon a nest of wasps buried underground last July. The rancher, Glenn Kile, is allergic to wasp stings so he took a metal stake and pounded it into the ground to try to seal the nest off. Unfortunately, a single spark flew up and ignited dry grass on his property.
