Alaska’s fire season is now more than a month longer than it was in 1950. At one point this summer, more than 300 wildfires were burning at once. Southeast of here, in our Pacific Northwest, even the rainforest is on fire…this is a threat to many communities.
Whatever Obama says, the exact opposite is true. According to the BLM, Alaska’s largest forest fires occurred during the 1940’s and 1950’s
Forest fires decreased in Alaska after the end of the Little Ice Age
Despite high variability at interannual to decadal scales, larger trends occur at the centennial scale. A widespread trend found in dendrochronological studies across boreal Canada has been the decrease in fire frequency following the end of the Little Ice Age in the mid 19th century (Brassard and Chen 2006).
America’s largest fire occurred in the Pacific Northwest 105 years ago, when CO2 was 300 PPM.
Obama is a pathological liar, who is incapable of telling the truth about anything – ever.
