tpo 20 the policy of let it burn and its effect on Yellowstone park
The material discusses if the policy of " Let it burn" causes damage or it is beneficial. While the reading claims that this policy caused severe damage in Yellowstone Park in the summer of 1988, the listening states that fire is a natural part of the ecosystem and the fire that happened in the Yellowstone park was not harmful, on the contrary, it was creative.
First, the author points out that fire caused enormous damage to the park's tree and other vegetation. On the other hand, the professor opposes this and posits that the fire made the vegetation more diverse. The lecturer explains that the fire created unshaded space, which was a favorable condition for some plants. Additionally, some plant species thrived under a high level of heat. As a result, the fire increased vegetation diversity.
Second, the writer brings up that the fire affected the wildlife of the park negatively. Conversely, the lecturer refutes this and contends that the fire created a new opportunity for small animals to thrive, such as rabbits. The professor adds that other animals that hunt rabbits started to increase since their food was available.
Third, the reading mentions that the fire had a negative impact on tourism, so it reduced the local economy. Nevertheless, the professor counters this and brings up that fire could affect tourism if it happens every year. The speaker cits that the fire that happened in Yellowstone park had some conditions that helped it to spread, such as low rainfall. The professor adds that this fire did not occur again since 1988, and the tourists came back to the park the next year and each year after.
