IN RESPONSE TO COMMENTS ON THIS YOUTUBE VIDEO ABOUT CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES CAUSED BY LASERS, BY PEOPLE CLAIMING TO HAVE CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE.

MY 2 CENTS...

HERE IS THE VIDEO IN QUESTION. AND NO I DONT THINK IT IS CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE.

@F3ND1MUS if people are killing other people and the government doesn't do anything to protect the victims and the victims decide to defend themselves then that's wrong?

undeadpresident  This sentence says a lot. let me try to break down my response. I don't agree with ANYONE killing other people. Generally speaking all people have the right to self defense. If someone is being actively attacked, and clearly needs to defend themselves, they do it, they do it everyday, 2nd amendment, law enforcement, calling 911, rule of law, law and order, crime and punishment, and on and on and on. Like I have said before, I see no conclusive evidence of a governmental or other private conspiracy to actively kill people with lasers in California in this video [making the title MISLEADING AND CLICK BAIT / FEAR MONGERING].

That doesn't mean something like that doesn't exist, it means that I don't see it based on the photos and data given in this video. What I think some people are seeing may be an indicative conditional, as seen and explained here: 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indicative_conditional 

and more specifically explained from that page as this: 

"One problem is that the material conditional allows implications to be true even when the antecedent is irrelevant to the consequent."
For Example: 

" it's commonly accepted that the sun is made of plasma, on one hand, and that 3 is a prime number, on the other. The standard definition of implication allows us to conclude that, if the sun is made of plasma, then 3 is a prime number. This is arguably synonymous to the following: the sun's being made of plasma renders 3 a prime number. Many people intuitively think that this is false, because the sun and the number three simply have nothing to do with one another. "
In this case I think that some of the facts IE, we are in a long drought, and rain hasn't arrived on time this year, etc doesn't automatically mean there is an active conspiracy to light Cali on fire. Fires in Cali and the united states have been a problem for a long time, as seen here in this FEMA Report on rural fires dated 1997:

https://www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/statistics/rural.pdf
dated 2017 a fire ecologist explains why the "west" will have to deal with longer fire seasons, due to long seasonal droughts, wild land-urban interfaces IE more people living in and around forest areas in larger and larger numbers, etc.
Here is a LA TIMES article from 2016 talking about over 102 million dead trees in California's forests... 

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-dead-trees-explained-20161128-story.html 

 with a warning about a potential fire hazard, again caused by drought.... Most stories I see have drought listed as one of the main reasons for the fires, not the only reason, it's complex, there are many factors, and again I am willing to look at any conclusive evidence, but random people posting to YouTube, and claiming to have conclusive evidence, when they do not, are simply fear mongering and gathering views for their own personal gain, or don't know any better, either way, spreading that type of information is not helpful in solving the problem, 

I recommend making a video like" HOW TO FIREPROOF YOUR HOME AGAINST FOREST FIRES" 

and showing people how to fireproof their homes, install fire roof sprinkler suppression systems, cleaning gutters of leaves and debris, you know, real action that saves lives and helps reduce fire damage, not sitting around the internet blaming lasers from Austin powers movies, unless you have definitive proof of the act. 

Speculation is entertaining, but ultimately a waste of time for those who need help most. 
The truth is out there, watch out for the people trying to make a quick buck especially when fear is involved, it gets a real reaction fast, that's why its used. this has been known, I don't condone or use the tactics of fear to sell since I find it to be wrong, but if you search on google you can find how fear is used to sell to the masses, also don't discount what one man can do with Photoshop, let alone a team of people, creating a photo or video of a straight line coming down from the sky is probably the simplest thing a person can do.
