    “…drier conditions increased burn area…” Who knew?

    The LAT’s published this op-ed in Sunday’s paper (circulation approaches 1 million):

    Op-Ed What the Trump administration doesn’t understand about wildfires

    Ends on this note:

    A starting place is the 2017 Climate Science Special Report, which scientists from 13 federal agencies compiled. It has not been approved or published by the administration (it was leaked to the New York Times). The report’s data confirm that Earth is warmer now than it has been in 1,700 years, triggering a series of extreme weather events and fueling intense wildland conflagrations. No amount of logging, scapegoating or dismantling of NEPA protections will alter that reality. Or the pressing, existential challenges it poses.

    Increased wildfire, or increased reporting? Reading the annual National Interagency Fire Center statistics for 2016 (prepared by the NICC) is a great place to try and unravel that question. Of course the western states of the US had the bulk of the large, expensive fires. Gatlinburg, TN, had a very destructive and deadly fire, along with many drought plagued areas of the SE United States. For the rest of the country the statistics for wildfire make me wonder if too many freeway median fires are being reported. The state of Massachusetts had no federal agencies within it report any fires at all, but the state reported 1,526 fires affecting 1,381 acres. On average, less than one acre per event. The state of Maine had one resident federal agency, the NPS, report any fires; 17 fires covering seven (7) acres. The state of Maine itself reported 776 fires affecting 920 acres. Two federal agencies in Utah, BIA and NPS, reported a combined total of 45 fires covering 68 acres. Uncertain there was not a misprint or two in some of these agency reports, but many other states have interesting totals as well. If you read the number of fires and burned acres in the US are up, the only certain thing is the reporting is up.
