Good for him. Telling the truth. We need more of this.
Idk about the "wood fuel" assertion. In fact I disagree with it. That's why God made them ..damn..whaddaya call 'em? They're not here..

Poplar trees grow in the north so they can cut them down and burn them for heat and cooking right away. You can cook on that vs. say..Slash Pine or Fir trees.

At 17, I lived in Nicaragua to show solidarity with the Sandinista socialist revolution.

At 22 ... I was killing on them bastards ... I'm not allowed to say how far we pushed into Managua Nicaragua ... me and my frightfully hot soldering iron ... ha ha ha ...

The climate threat looked real to the panicky sort with limited data ... now that good data is coming in, everybody is backtracking ... I'm curious if IPCC will even issue a 6th Assessment Report ... that'll be a lot of crow to eat ...

From Poli Chics thread.....................I'm still waiting for the Ice Age predicted near 50 yrs ago. I'm in a geothermal bubble set at 70 degrees and I can't escape.

My advice....There ain't a GD thing any of us can do about this. The total world less us, belches most of the S out. Tell them to stop it you F imbeciles.

Here. Have mine.

Did you all hear even the Greta Thunberg girl is now saying she is tired of being used?

"On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem. "

When is the last time anyone heard from Greta Thunberg? Or any other enviro-nut claiming the world is doomed?
It's just not in the front of people's minds anymore, and the world is on to bigger and more productive usage of their time (like pulling down statues or kicking old timey negroes off boxes on our supermarket shelves).

Not that the IPCC has given up their dreams of frightening hundreds of millions of sheep like people into giving up their freedom and money in the name of fighting an existential nightmare that doesn't truly exist.
It's not as if they can give a shy grin and admit "Okay. You got us. We've been tossing bullshit all
around for decades now. Oh well! You can't fault us for trying."
Score one for Naomi Seibt and send Greta Thunberg to an analyst.

The fact is the moderate voices were always right (yes there is such a thing as "global warming"....no, it's not going to be an existential environmental disaster").

You were lied to by National Geographic, Time, CNN, the New York Times and the entire left side of the political spectrum.

Time to stop living the lie, frightening children. formulating needless carbon taxes and worrying about polar bears.

Do some research people. If you can't bear the thought of living in a world that ISN'T on the brink of disaster join a support group and grow up. Stop bothering the smart people. Go live in a cave.

Wood fuel assertion I think refers to places like California and australia not doing enough to clear fallen trees, branches, and brush from the land. Then when a real forest fire comes, they burn hotter than the devils gonorrhea dick. In those arid climates, you HAVE to clear that shit out. I know in California they’ve made an effort to spot clearing in order to protect some wildlife or some shit. Funny thing is, out of control forest fires and smoke inhalation kill wildlife even quicker so...

They don't need Global Warming anymore when COVID-19 fast-tracked the desired results in just 2 short months.

He uses the phrase "wood fuels" twice in the article. There are the quotes of his two uses:

"The build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California"

"Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels"

You are talking about cutting them down for fuel. I think he is saying that the "energy density" of fossil fuels is a lot higher than "energy density" of wood.

I don't have any objection to people cutting down trees for fuel, as long as they replant new trees to replace them.

He is also referring to the issue of wildfires spreading.

California, for whatever reason, has chosen to not clear away the dead trees, excess brush, etc. So when a wildfire does start, it's much worse than if that stuff had been cleared away. That, and not global warming, is why their wildfires spread so badly.

This paragrpah is a great, real world example of the difference between clearing away the dead trees, excess brush, etc., and not clearing it away. And this is from Mother Jones, which is left wing, not right wing:

"A Century of Fire Suppression Is Why California Is in Flames"

"December 12, 2017"

"The acrid smell of charred wood still permeates the air as Sasha Berleman, a fire ecologist, and I walk along a dirt path up through the middle of a canyon in the Bouverie nature preserve in Sonoma Valley. On the left side, the earth is black as tar, and scorch marks as tall as a person scar the trunks of the mature oak trees scattered throughout the field. But on the right side, the ground is tan and brown, and you have to look hard at the still-green oaks to see any evidence of the fire that raged through here just a few weeks before. It’s no mystery to Berleman why the fire behaved so differently on the two sides of the trail at Audubon Canyon Ranch’s Bouverie Preserve. When flames hit the field on the left of the path, they met a dense wall of thigh-high grass that hadn’t been mowed, grazed or burned for 20 years. The flames must have been 5 or 6 feet tall. On the right side, however, Berleman had set a prescribed burn just this spring. So when the October wildfire hit, patches of fire blazed, but with so little fuel, the flames remained only inches high."

Basically, the article didn't address global warming at all. He just repeated a lot of denier strawmen about global warming, and used a lot of suckass logic. He's always been just a pretty boy professional activist, with no scientific training, so nobody paid him any attention. This is the first time I've heard of him. The author seems to project his own personal history of irrationality on to normal people. No wonder deniers identify with him.

A lot of deniers here are now repeating the strawmen he repeated. For example, it was deniers predicting global cooling in the 1970s, and who are still predicting global cooling. Deniers, that faceplant is entirely yours, so don't project it on to us.
