    You’re confusing people with all of these facts and logic! ;-)

    I recently heard on a leftist radio station that fire acres burned had doubled since the 1980’s. Yes, the 1980’s were generally a very quiet decade for fires. But obviously other past decades were far more active.

    Without their very crude cherry picks, these alarmists have absolutely nothing to show!

    Also, could fanatical alarmists perhaps be starting some fires? Considering how psycho and desperate they are, I would not put it past them!

      I can guarant you,that this is what they’ll do
      to impress people and to show them how serious and real AGW is.

      The crying and fearporn is just the first step,
      tampering data and name calling
      sabotaging air conditioning as Hansen and Wirth did is the second step)
      but as soon as it turns out that they are are not getting what they want
      or the public realise that their statistics are just lies backed by more lies
      they’ll show you what happen when you vote for the ‘wrong’ politicians and refuse to believe the official truth until you believe the official truth again.

      These guys are militant and corrupt by nature.

    Plus modern “improved” fire fighting techniques have lead to massive buildup of fuel.

    A quote from this link:

    “Repeat series photography (the comparison of historic and modern images) reveals landscape-scale impacts of fire suppression in mountain parks: namely the in-filling of uniform forests where patchy habitats once existed.” [see pics at link]

    That in combination with sharply increased levels of dead trees and underbrush will lead to bigger and hotter fires, and has nothing to do with “climate change.” Even so clearly much more acreage was burned in the past than now. The leftists in charge of the climate scam are masters at fear-mongering bullsh}t.

    To add to what Eric wrote:
    We live in fire prone country —
    The nearest big fire came past us at 2.6 miles north; called the Snag Canyon Fire (web has photos of it). Planes, including one of the DC-10s, flew over our house many times.

    We have been to fire awareness gatherings and know folks involved.
    Fires need temperature, an ignition, and fuel.
    High temperature is easy — happens every summer.
    Ignition can be lightning, but more people mean more people caused ignitions.
    Fuel. OMG! The mountains (lee side of the Cascades) are buried with fuel. I hike, therefore I know.
    Big fires are going to happen.

    After each fire, I am impressed with the parts within the fire’s perimeter that are not harmed. These maps get almost no distribution, except locally.

    Interestingly, a local university researcher** is studying the effect of wildfire caused soot (aka black carbon) on snow melt. Much soot gets lodged in trees and then falls onto snow. It takes several years for this enhanced surface melt to fade completely. When she and students first started their work, an hypothesis was that the soot was coming from urban/industrialized areas. Analyses showed the soot was from wildfires. So early snowmelt, if it happens, might have this or other things going on.

    Eric also (in that quote) mentions “in-filling” of open parks in the forests. That began in our area in the mid-1800s as settlers took up lands previously occupied seasonally by natives. There are photos.

    **A second one studies sediment cores from area lakes to investigate past fire history going back hundreds of years. She and her students study charcoal and pollen from the lake core.
