Forest Fires Of 1910

March of 1910 was the warmest and driest on record in the US.

This led to the largest and some of the deadliest fires in US history.

On October 7 a forest fire raged out of control across Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota, leveling everything in its path.

    If you ever are in the area, the St. Maries 1910 Fire Memorial at Woodlawn Cemetery is worth a visit.

    If you have to misrepresent the data of your “climate change indicators” does that mean you don’t really have any climate change indicators?
