Fire Conspiracy Theories From Climate Scam Deniers

Whenever I post the graph below, climate scam deniers come up with all sorts of excuses.  Like : “they used to start the fires intentionally” or “firefighting techniques got better” or “people didn’t used to know how to do addition.”

Unfortunately for their theories, fire burn acreage in the US very closely tracks how hot summers are.

The climate scam completely depends on climate scam deniers ignoring history, and refusing to look at inconvenient data.

    Actually I would think it would be more accurate to say that the climate scam depends on the unwashed masses not knowing the history. If enough people didn’t believe the scammers because they knew the real facts the scam would die.

    On the good side though is the fact that the very ones that claim to believe for the most part only pay lip service because they recognize that that there are far more pressing problems or they’re so wrapped up in their own lives they have not the time or motivation to support the scam in any meaningful way.

    For decades now we have seen one deadline to act after another go by. For decades now the same scammers and “news” people have been banging the human caused climate change drum. And for decades the “issue” has remained at or near the bottom of every survey of the concerns people have.

    Well,according to “climate experts” people did not knew how to read thermometers until 40 years ago so probably they also did not know how to do addition :)

    Though one may think that 70-80 years ago in a satellite free era many wildfires went unreported
    and if people ever started wildfires on purpose,than nowadays to “prove” global warming,
    similar to artificial illegal immigration.

  3. Before seeing this graph I personally suspected the huge spike in U.S. fires had something to so with the Prohibition Amendment forcing distillers out of brick buildings and into forested areas (and prisons). I’m not sure I’m over it yet, but there is no question that during a heat wave there is an uptick in Smokey the Bear warnings. Canadians had fewer and weaker prohibition laws, and repealed them earlier except, I believe, in Newfoundland. If the extent of burning forest there correlates with that on the other side of the political boundary, those numbers could provide a way of separating the effect of driving trade and production of distilled spirits into the woods versus those of heat waves.

      You could be onto something though we are seeing a local post-prohibition effect here.

      Out-of-state stoners started flooding to Colorado after pot legalization. They get supplies in town and move up the hill into the woods. When their money and weed run out they come down and beg for more.

      They are friendly and mellow. They don’t panic even when their campfires get away from them. They just watch in wonder.

        Good picture that depicts perfectly a significant segment of the democrat base. Drive on!!!!
        As for our local variety of freeloaders, I have gotten the impression that pickings are getting pretty slim because of the booming jobs market that everyone but the old media and democrats can see. No excuses so the number of freeloaders seem to be way down around my part of Indiana.

    The grand reduction of wild fires from the ’20s also reflects the growth of human transportation thanks to the internal combustion engine. Man developed the mobility to actually do something about the fires.

    That doesn’t explain the growth from the teens into the ’20s. But it could be related. The fires could have been going on, but because of our limited mobility, we just didn’t know it.
