I was just looking at reports of the fires out west. I see mention that one was caused by a person who is now under arrest. The others seem to probably been caused by lightening strikes.
OK, so what if we put up ten thousand lightening rods?
Such a device would prevent a strike on the rod from causing a fire, right?
I presume the issue is the cost of the huge numbers of towers needed, right? Any guesses how many such devices might be needed?
