    I see some people here and elsewhere get carried away over Wild Fires. They often ignore geological history and even just the last few hundred years.

    The main cause is poor forest management, which seems to be ignored by MSM and warmists who are emotionally caught up with the hysteria.

    Watts Up With That?

    A Geological Perspective of Wildfires

    EXCERPT:​

    "Introduction
    This post was inspired by Anthony Watts’ recent post about wildfires and their unwillingness to cooperate with the Gorebal Warming narrative.

    If the “climate” was warming faster or sea level was rising faster “than at any time in the past 2000 years,” it would be front page material (they aren’t, see Addendum 1). However, actual evidence that “global biomass burning during the past century has been lower than at any time in the past 2000 years” doesn’t get much notice in the mainstream media."

    There are always outliers as for example Indonesia and Siberia but the AGW cultists will always ignore evidence. Right now the north Atlantic is too cold to support anything but minimal tropical storm activity but that doesn't make the news.

    Tommy.....the k00ks are going to say the geologists aren't real scientists. If you are not in the alarmist club, you're a fake scientist!!:113::113:
