    Kosh, quite posting Spencer's baseline fudging fraud. You know it's a fraud. Everyone knows Spencer fudged the baseline, and that he did it deliberately.

    As far as fires go, you can plot California temperature and wildfire area on the same graph, and the correlation is extremely strong. When it's a hot year, wildfire levels are higher. Thus, it's hilarious to watch deniers claiming that a warming climate is unrelated to wildfire levels. No wonder the whole planet is laughing at them.

    "It's the brush!" is a dopey theory. Brush grows high in a couple years. Burned areas can reburn in a couple years. Claiming that a no-burn policy abandoned in the 1970s is causing fires now is delusional. And claiming that we need to remove mature forests (which don't burn well) and leave behind the slash piles (which do burn well) to control fires is amazingly stupid.

    Wildfire levels are now unprecedented. No, burn area wasn't higher in the 1930s. That's an apples vs. oranges comparison, as the 1930s data includes fires set for clearing farmland across the entire nation, which was a common agricultural practice at the time.

    "The whole planet is laughing at deniers."

    Which planet? Not this planet.

    In the real world ( outside of community messages boards :fingerscrossed:) deniers could not possibly be be winning more decisively. Some have opinions about climate change effecting the planet, but climate change action is happening nowhere, most notably in the US.:funnyface::funnyface::fu:. When that happens, climate crusaders can boast all they want about the "decided science" but until then, the level of losing continues to be prolific!!

    What genuine, no-bullshit ambition on climate change would look like

    On this planet, when everyone sees you claiming that warming temperatures have nothing to with increased wildfires, they stand for a moment with jaws dropped, shocked that you somehow managed to reach adulthood without wearing a helmet.

    Seriously, everyone thinks the denier position here is retarded. That's because it is. You may not understand that, because you only hang around with the other cultists you read on cult conspiracy blogs, but it's true. When you talk about how global warming has nothing to do with increased wildfires, the whole world laughs at you.

    Seriously, why do you think your common-sense-defying position isn't stupid? And why do I always have to stage these interventions?

    Mikey boi, you are the dumbest of fucks. Over 90 dead in just Greece alone from one wild fire. Fires in Norway, Sweden, and Finland. Many north of the Arctic Circle. Big fires in
    Russia as well. Where ever the unusual heat coincided with a drought period, there have been fires.

    Face it, Mikey boi, you are just plain too stupid to understand a clear answer. Compared to past years, very large areas in the Northern Hemisphere have been, or are on fire.

    But people like Kosh will continue to post the lie. After all, it is all they have. A measured 21 more frost free days in BC. But that means nothing at all to dumb fucks like you.
