According to news from the Mongolian State Administration of Emergency Situations website on the 19th, the grassland fire that occurred on the 18th in Daliganga County, Sukhbaatar Province, was extinguished at about 9:50 this morning. According to preliminary predictions, the grassland fire has burned an area of approximately 1,800 square kilometers (about 60 kilometers in length and 30 kilometers in width). The cause of the fire is under investigation. (Huo Wen, People’s Daily reporter)
At about 0:20 a.m. local time on April 19th, the Union News Network of Sukhbaatar Province of Mongolia announced that after a grassland fire in Daligangga County, Sukhbaatar Province raged in many places in the county on the 18th, After passing through Erden Chagan County, it has now spread to China. It is reported that the current rescue work is still ongoing.
Due to human factors, there is a habit of burning wasteland in Outer Mongolia every year, and then we have to put out the fire every year. Unreasonable grazing and mining of minerals. 3 million people, tens of millions of livestock, the poorer they are, the more they graze, and they don’t go out to the sea to sell them in large quantities. They can’t sell at a good price and increase the number of grazing. In order to make money, we can raise more sheep, and the quality of raising Leymus chinensis will decline. If it declines, new pastures will be opened up. Desertification continues to intensify. The future of this country is bleak. Now in the spring, the grass on the pasture is already dry. Isolation is just to control the fire in this circle. When the temperature is high, other places will catch fire. It is unrealistic to cover the grassland area by plane sprinkling water, and artificial rainfall is the best if the conditions are available. The rain wets the grass, otherwise there will only be a fire where it will be extinguished, and there is no way of knowing where a fire will occur, and only passive extinguishing. I hope that the firefighters can safely answer why Mongolia burns the wasteland. Mongolia has tens of millions of livestock. It is naturally impossible to rely solely on traditional nomadic animal husbandry. Whether it is large pasture grazing or a mixture of agriculture and animal husbandry, there must be a certain period of time for land cultivation, which means to stop grazing and abandon. In a certain year, if you want to re-develop, the simplest solution is to “fire”, saving labor and labor. Of course, there are also factors of spring ploughing production every year, and the ash after burning wasteland becomes fertilizer. Some crops can be harvested as long as they are planted with seeds, and some can grow when the seeds are sowed with a little loosening of the soil. Not to mention the effect of killing bacteria and parasites, the grasses begin to grow quite well. Of course, the harm is great, vegetation is destroyed, and land is degraded. Basically, fishing is exhausted. Our country strictly prohibits it. The sandstorm in Mongolia was also due to overgrazing. The wolf totem mentioned in the comment section was in good condition in Outer Mongolia. Years have passed. The problem of overgrazing in Mongolia is basically unsolvable unless our country wants to add another province or region. At this stage, it is unrealistic for Mongolia to reduce the amount of grazing or increase the carrying capacity of pastures to solve the problem. To reduce the amount of grazing is to move the money bags of the herdsmen, and Mongolia cannot provide high subsidies. This decree is impossible to achieve. Whether it is technological upgrading or industrial structure optimization to increase the carrying capacity of pastures… Just think about it. China hasn’t done it yet. Do you expect Mongolia to take the lead? As for giving Mongolia financial assistance and technical guidance to solve the problem, let’s ask first. The problem of your own ranch has not been solved. Are you willing to give taxpayer money to other countries to solve the problem?
