    Everyone’s a firefighter as Lapland confronts wildfires
    Jul 31, 2018 - Until this month, nobody would have imagined that the bucolic Lapland town of Jokkmokk could be home to one of the world’s busiest fire brigades.

    80 degrees almost every day of summer here in NY....for several summers now. Very bizarre. Whole northeast cold and shit in recent years....zero global warming concerns.

    Forest fires in Russia
    More than 300,000 acres have burned in recent days after a record heat wave and severe drought.
    That amounts to ~469 square miles. If that is "vast" then you will run out of superlatives for the other (almost) 3 million square miles of Russian forest which is not on fire.

    Clearly we need a new Smokey campaign ( or whatever that bear's name was ) like they did in the 70's. St00pid mutherfuckers go camping and burn down the forest. Gotta wonder though....alot of environment mental cases living out on the left coast.

    This whole climate change/forest fire thing pushed by the climate crusaders is laughed at by most of the country that is freezing its collective ass off 9 months out of the year.:113:. The climate crusaders still fAiL to recognize that the voters are not at all concerned about the science.....because they are spending most months of the year wearing nut sack warmers. Duh....that's the way it works. The research on it is not even debatable.

    Are not in Florida, because it rains every day, and the forestry service makes firecuts and burns off undergrowth.
