Prior to 1960, wildfires in the US burned far more acres than they do now.
Heatwaves were much longer, more widespread, more frequent and more intense prior to 1960.
NASA and NOAA have massively tampered with the temperature data prior to 1960, so this part of American history is largely lost. And government agencies don’t talk about pre-1960 forest fires, because it doesn’t suit their agenda. All part of the biggest science fraud in history.
