So, the climate noobs who pretend to be experts in such a matter told us that global warming would cause more forest fires. Of course, a couple of tenths of degrees one way or the other have
very little nothing to do with forest fires. It is supreme idiocy to believe such a notion. All one has to do is look south (or north if you’re below the equator) and see if warmer actually does mean more fires. Well, as far as anyone can tell, empirical evidence says no. But, after that notion was quelled, the morons doubled down and babbled nearly unintelligible blatherings …… something about Pine Beatles and warmer = drier or something equally stupid. Any idiot knows warmth = rain. No warmth, no rain. It is simply that simple.
Now, there are very few places which actually track wild fires. Actually, as far as I can find, there are only two. The US and Canada. You’d think the BOM of Australia would have the data on such things, but, I can’t find it. Strange, no?
As seen in many posts in the past, Canada’s wild fires are declining in frequency and acreage. I’ll try to update the readers to Canada’s horrid plight of the dearth of wildfires later this year, but, I thought I’d check in on how the US has been doing of late with all this imaginary global warming causing all of these fires.
Here’s the “Year-to-Date” data, with the previous 10 years at the same date, 1 May.
Yep, this imaginary global warming is horrid stuff!!!! But, only in the minds of absolute and abject lunatics.
