Ed, we've been over this plenty of times. Thread after thread, you keep losing this argument. If it's a mental disability, I'll stop harassing you... but I've got to think you're expecting to make money off this farce.

Obviously the supertankers have routinely failed to "do the job" in Russia, which routinely has devastating fire seasons costing lives, acres, and painful sums of money. In a locale such as California with such quick-moving fires and brutal terrain (which is a definite problem for something so cumbersome as supertankers).

Obviously, as evidenced by Russia, the supertankers can't do the job - and in reality are simply a very expensive tool in the box, and one that's really not that well-suited to Californian fire conditions in the first place.
