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?

I have too much say on this issue. Before, we cooperated with a forest firefighting unit of the Xilin Gol League and did a feature film about fire fighting in the grasslands. I also did a 3D animation of tank combat methods. It can be said that I understand it very well. But I don’t know which ones are classified, so it’s inconvenient to say more, just give a general idea. The whole thing is that the tanks and firemen are standing on the Chinese side of the border. When the fire comes, they will be suppressed. Then make some isolation belts. The Mongolian side does not matter, as long as it does not burn into the country, and the tanks are not. There are five types of formations and five combat methods. And every year there will be a combat report, summary, etc., in short, if they are on the border, it will not be possible to burn it. Let me talk about other inconveniences. I can recommend this question to one of their staff members when someone from their army can answer it. But it is estimated that he is busy putting out the fire, so there is no time to answer. After watching the video on the cover news, it really burned to Xilin Gol, so he must be busy putting out the fire on the front line, and wait for them to be wiped out.

Some pastoral areas in Mongolia have a tradition of burning wasteland, because burned grasslands do germinate earlier, and it is generally believed that some insect eggs will be burned to reduce insect damage. However, the subsequent growth rate of the grassland is not as good as that of the normal grassland. Therefore, there is a tradition of burning waste in some areas, and there is no such tradition in other areas. It is difficult to solve the problem of prevention and control. Many areas of Inner Mongolia were highly guarded against grassland fires that might occur on the other side of the border every spring many years ago. Up to now, it seems that there is nothing to do except the waiting guard of firefighters and government staff.

It has been more than ten years since it has burned wasteland every year and put out fires every year. When will this slash-and-burn production method be changed? On April 19, a grassland fire broke out in Daliganga County, Sukhbaatar Province, Mongolia. According to statistics, there were 121 forest and grassland fires in Mongolia in 2019, 11 of which occurred in Sukhbaatar Province. In the spring and autumn seasons, the northern grasslands are dry, drier and windy. After the temperature rises, fires are already prone to fires. When the wasteland is burned, just a little bit of sparks, blown by the strong wind… really annoying old There is a problem. I hope that the personnel will be safe and the innocent animals will be less affected.

The grassland fire occurred near the border between China and Mongolia. Mongolia’s spring is dry, less rainy and windy, and the temperature gradually rises. This is the season for forest and grassland fires. Mongolia’s neighbor is also extinct. It is a country that claims to maintain the tradition of nomadic people. It is now a pasture capital. It was like this. There was a sandstorm a while ago, and now there is a fire. I heard people at the border tell me that when they had no money, they set fire on purpose, and then went to Inner Mongolia to falsify the money. If they don’t give it, they continue to release it. When Mongolia lacks money, Mongolians will be there. The border is set on fire, waiting for Inner Mongolia to call them Mongolia; every year, as long as Mongolia’s ecology does not improve, this kind of problem will not end. It will take ten and a half days, if it causes an environment like sandstorms like last time. The question is, it’s not unreasonable that South Korea doesn’t know how it would point its nose to blame our ancient rulers for exhausting financial resources and material resources.

At about 0:20 am on April 19, the Mongolian News Network released a news report stating that the fire on the Mongolian grasslands on the 18th had spread to China. How could Mongolia’s fire reach China? What is going on? Mongolia belongs to a continental temperate steppe climate, with little rain and drought in spring, and higher temperatures, which is a high-risk season for forest grassland fires. What is the current situation of the fire? Let’s take a look at the specific report. The fire broke out and spread to China. It is reported that at about 12 noon on April 18, local time, Sukhbaatar Province of Mongolia received an emergency call for help. Bayin in the second Baga district of Daliganga County A grassland fire broke out in Chagan area and the situation is urgent. Sukhbaatar Province immediately dispatched the 15th fire brigade, the 0146th unit, the 0184th unit of the Border Guard, and about 150 civil servants and herders in Dali Ganga and other counties, and 21 vehicles were organized into a rescue team. The fire was extinguished. However, the wind at the scene was relatively high and it was very difficult to extinguish the fire. At present, according to the news of the CCTV news client, in the early morning of April 19, the Sukhbaatar Provincial United News Network released the news of the grassland fire, and confirmed that the fire has not been extinguished, and the fierce fire is rapidly raging in many places in the county, and After passing through Erden Chagan County, it is spreading into China. The Sukhbaatar Provincial Fire Brigade has so far dispatched more than 580 people to rescue and extinguish fires. According to statistics, there were 121 forest and grassland fires in Mongolia in 2019, and 11 in Sukhbaatar Province alone. Chinese firefighting personnel are on standby at any time at around 7 am on April 18, the fire brigade staff of the Xilin Gol League stated that the open flames close to the front line of the Chinese border have been blocked by the border patrol lanes and fire barriers with the joint efforts of all our staff. To the north. The staff member said that due to border issues, the next step is to wait for further notice. Because this requires several units to work together, it is not that they can act if they want to rescue. He explained that the rainfall in Mongolia this year is relatively small and the weather is very dry. It is possible for a fire to occur. At present, the Sukhbaatar Province of Mongolia has entered a state of combat readiness. At about 8 o’clock on April 19, a reporter contacted the fire rescue team of our Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The person in charge said that they did receive news of a grassland fire in Mongolia. However, they said that as of the time of contact, the fire rescue team in Mongolia The fire has been controlled. Chinese firefighters are still on standby at all times to pay close attention to the development of the fire. Mongolia and China have obvious differences in their attitudes towards the development of grassland resources. The most intuitive example is that Mongolia organizes to set fire to grassland every year, which will burn dozens of kilometers of fire. Such a deliberately set fire is very different from a naturally occurring fire. Mongolia believes that burning fire will help the growth of grasslands, but China takes the opposite attitude. In China, there is a dedicated person responsible for the land. Pastures cannot be destroyed privately, let alone burned, because the consequences of arson are unimaginable. If the wind changes, it would be a trivial matter to burn your own house, cattle and sheep, and burn the national borders. It’s a big deal. Currently, Mongolia has not provided an analysis of the cause of the grassland fire. Everything has to wait for further news.

Under the ecological crisis, no one can survive alone. The world, even if China itself does well, can it stop the sandstorm in Outer Mongolia? Can prevent Japan from discharging nuclear waste water? Can stop desertification in Central Asia? As I said in my previous answer, due to its unique geographical location, Outer Mongolia will become a continuous bloodletting tumor in our country if it is not handled well. At the same time, since there is an international coordination organization such as the Security Council for global security, why is there no ecological security? Is ecological security not safe? It is necessary to integrate existing ecological-related international organizations and establish cross-regional multilateral cooperation institutions with sovereignty and coercion. A sovereign country cannot be allowed to destroy the ecology to influence neighboring countries. We must be clear that whether China’s ecology can continue to deteriorate today is not only based on fertilizers and enthusiasm, but also on the advantages of a big country. We have the Northeast and other places with few people and lots of land, the affluent places in the south, and the resource-rich places in the north. We rely on transfer payments from different regions to solve their own difficulties. Many small countries do not have the conditions and can only rely on overdraft to develop themselves. Therefore, multilateral institutions must not only improve the ecology, but also pay attention to the balance and coordination of global resources. This is the right way to achieve a community with a shared future for mankind, rather than gaining benefits with a big food stick.

This land turtle country has no culture. I get drunk every day and dream about going back to the Mongolian era. The grassland is a public resource. Without supervision, everyone wants to gain benefits. So they overgraze. The more cattle and sheep are worthless, and the number is increased. The end result is that the grassland is destroyed, causing a series of environmental problems, such as the sky full of yellow sand. , Desertification, fires, cattle and sheep are worthless, etc. It is not in the interests of everyone. Economics is called the tragedy of the commons. The correct solution is to contract to private individuals. In order to maximize their personal interests, private individuals will effectively manage grassland operations without overgrazing.

In fact, in one sentence, there is no way to prevent and control it, just like a sandstorm. You don’t let people raise sheep, don’t mine, and what will they eat in a country. And the less money you have, the poorer you are. The more I can only do this. Just like our country, when grazing was banned in Inner Mongolia in the early years, the country either had subsidies or had a way to provide forage, and the entire pre-propaganda work was invested a lot. In other words, there was a lot of simple investment. Maybe the income was without cash costs. It was all about the environment. income. People in a whole country cannot think of another effective way out, and there is no way to stop it. Therefore, everything itself has a huge cost. In fact, the best way is to return to us. We are temporarily raising the population. In fact, it has a population of 3 million, which is not much. But the problem is that those mines in Mongolia are privately owned. Think about it in another way. If you have a mine in your house, would you care about the environment or your own banknotes? And those who have mines, do you think their status will be low? So overall, if there is an official statement, the reason for this relationship is very complicated.

Only China will prevent and control. Because the grassland fires do more harm than good to Mongolia. The fire burns the herdsmen’s cattle and sheep to death. The government will not pay attention to it, and it is useless to pay attention to it. In this season, the grass hasn’t grown very much. The ground is full of dry grass. It is easy to catch fire. If it catches fire, it is equivalent to chasing fertilizer and there are fewer pests. Why not do it. The grasslands are so large that they cannot be prevented even if they want to prevent them, and some herders will set them on fire. As long as it does not burn into cities and forests, the grassland fires will not have a major impact on Mongolia. Why do they need to fire the fire? Anyway, if it burns to the border, the Chinese will extinguish it. What’s happening in Ulaanbaatar now? The government is still engaged in political confrontation. What a fire is. Last fall, the forest on the edge of Ulaanbaatar was still burning, and the fire was a trivial matter to the Mongolian people.

I don’t know how to see it through, but I understand it. It’s obvious to all of us how the United States has tried every possible means in recent years; from trade wars to sanctions to cultivating the new crown virus to instructing Japan to discharge sewage. I don’t want to list these evidences; give money to buy Mongolian instructions They set fire to interfere with our borders, and Americans will definitely be able to do it, but some Mu Yang who is completely poisoned by Western values on the platform will still jump out to wash the ground for their beautiful fathers.
