    1930s in the US. Way worse as far as heat. Do your own research. The 1930's set the record for heat in the US. Nothing even comes close.

    Do you mean the trees burning in recent years, one year was 10 million acres, or the trees from 1930-31 when 50 million acres burned?

    You sure about your chart ? I will admit it was a chore trying to find charts predating 1980.

    The old forest fire records are regarded as really dubious, as they counted burning farmland as forest fires, in an era when burning farmland was common.

    They also don't account for the fluctuating polar vortexes over time. ( basically a bad winter in Canada would be a mild one in Russia because of the shifting Arctic temperatures.)

    Nothing like selective data. Perhaps you could look at the whole country as opposed to 11 states.

    2015, 2017 topped 10 mil acres burned, 1930, 1931 topped 50 mil. Prior to 1952, back to 1926, not one year was under 10 mil.

    How about this.

    National Interagency Fire Center

    If you don't like the data take it up with the govt.

    How did this happen? CO2?

    The Great Heat Wave of 1936; Hottest Summer in U.S. on Record | Weather Extremes

    "Oklahoma City also broke its all-time heat record with a high of 113° on August 11th as did Kansas City also with 113° on August 14th and Wichita with 114° on the 12th. The list just goes on and on.

    All in all, nothing like this heat wave has before or since occurred. It is hard to believe how people fared without air-conditioning, although there were some rudimentary forms of such:"

    This is 1936. Tell me again how things are hotter now than ever?
