Politifact Weighs In On Forest Fires

Politifact has erased America’s fire history saying the historical data is unreliable and many fires in the past were man-made.

PolitiFact | No, wildfires weren’t bigger in the 1920s and ‘30s than today

The historical data shows more than fifty million acres burned, not forty million.

National Report on Sustainable Forests — 2010

The reason for the high burn acreage during the 1930s was the record heat and drought.

Politifact claims that the data from the 1930s was unreliable because much of it was man-made – which is exactly the same story as now.

The correct way to handle perceived errors in data is to put error bars on it – not erase or alter it like government agencies do now.

    PolittleFacts comment on Tony’s analysis: GIGO. The temperature, drought index and other data underlying Mr. Heller’s analysis have recently been discredited, and he continues to rely on discredited wildfire data. Thus, his conclusions are garbage–because vee zay zo.

    My reply to Tony: KEEP FIGHTING fire with fire, FACTS, superb critical thinking skills and great communication skills!!!

    PoliticalFacts is another oxymoron name used by Marxist propagandists in their attempt to keep the peasants from “looking behind the curtain.” They aren’t scientists. Mostly, they couldn’t pass a rigorous science class if their lives depended on it. They never learned disciplined rational thought and wouldn’t use it if they could, because they are punch drunk on their doctrine.
    The problem they face is, as ignorant as the peasants are, they will eventually resent being lied to when they face the absoluteness of truth.

    So, arson arrests in California in 2021 were 121. And I wonder how many were not arrested. And the Politifact article apparently insinuates that today’s fires are NOT man-made? It’s no secret that leftist terrorists (and Muslim extremists) will use any means necessary to destroy our country.
