CALIFORNIA Wildfires Are Not Due To Climate Change

Brilliant analysis Tony Heller aka Steve Goddard.
And, not to mention that a homeless encampment cooking fire was responsible for the latest Bel Air fire. Yet, California’s “climate ambulance chaser” in chief, governor Jerry Brown instead blamed “climate change” as a “new normal” … apparently an easier problem to address than the state’s chronic homelessness.

Green Jihad

In this video, author and scientist Tony Heller brilliantly debunks ambulance chasing climate scientists who come out of the woodwork every time there is a natural disaster, like wildfires in California. In fact, burn acreage in the US has plummeted over the past 85 years, as CO2 has increased.

NASA: Global acreage burned by fire has dropped 24% since 1998

Man made CO2-induced wildfire proliferation update…

Watts Up With That?

NASA detects drop in global fires

Shifting livelihoods across the tropical forest frontiers of South America, the Eurasian Steppe, and the savannas of Africa are altering landscapes and leading to a significant decline in the amount of land burned by fire, a trend that NASA’s satellites have detected from space.

The global area of land burned each year declined by 24 percent between 1998 and 2015, according to analysis of satellite data by NASA scientists and their colleagues. The largest decline was seen across savannas in Africa, and due to changing livelihoods. CREDIT Credits: Joshua Stevens/NASA’s Earth Observatory

The ongoing transition from nomadic cultures to settled lifestyles and intensifying agriculture has led to a steep drop not only in the use of fire on local lands, but in the prevalence of fire worldwide, researchers at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and colleagues found.

Globally, the total acreage burned by…

Fake News “Cooks” Guardian’s Climate Credibility

Fake news Guardian.jpg

With 13 known fatalities and nearly a thousand buildings and structures destroyed in the tragic Tennessee fires, the usual climate ambulance chasers are out in force blaming, you guessed it, man-made “climate change”!

The hysterical Guardian

Fires and drought cook Tennessee – a state represented by climate deniers | John Abraham | Environment | The Guardian

•••

Author John Abraham notes “The causes of drought are combinations of lowered precipitation and higher temperatures.” 

This is a no-brainer, however it is dishonest to blame so-called, man-made climate change as the root cause of the fires based on “many weeks of weather (warm and dry) that have led to the current conditions.” 

Climate change is measured over multi-decadal periods, over a 30 year period or ‘climate point’, not over “many weeks” as the Guardian ferments.

Abraham deliberately focuses on the “many weeks” time-scale because a longer look at Tennessee’s climate history wrecks his CO2-induced, man-made climate change theory…

But, how severe is this drought historically? And, is it due to human CO2 ‘carbon’ emissions or simply, natural cycles in climate?

Before WW2, the time period that the IPCC claims CO2-emissions were yet to have an effect on climate, the US experienced more severe drought.

In the low-CO2 (309 ppm) year of July 1934, 80% of the US was in severe to extreme drought…

The most glaring example of the hysterical Guardian’s dishonesty to its readership, is the simple fact that while CO2 has been increasing, the “Numbers of [Tennessee] wildfires have been trending downward since the late 1970’s.”

This is why “fake news” organisations like The Guardian, CNN, ABC, The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald, NYTimes, Washington Post, BBC et al., cannot be trusted on anything related to global warming climate change.

They are not interested in “the science” that they and fellow climate alarmists claim to own, rather, their primary interest lies in misinforming readers and viewers with cherry-picked propaganda to further their political goals and ideological agenda.

And to dear John Abraham, “belief” and “denial” are the words of zealots, not scientists.

Those who continue to slime with the “denier” meme, in a vile reference to “Holocaust denial” (designed to intimidate and isolate) indicate they’ve run out of arguments, and slurs are all they have left. The historical climate data above, that took 10 minutes to source, exposes this.

Climatism extends its condolonces to the victims and their families and all those effected by the Tennessee wildfires. And blessings to the brave first responders.

Fire Is An Essential And Necessary Part Of The Forest Cycle

Climate zealots, Greens politicians (Obama) and their armchair sycophants, fail to acknowledge or realise that as CO2 has increased, wildfire acreage has decreased, where the U.S. is concerned.

But yes, facts and empirical evidence (science) are irrelevant when you’re pushing “save the planet” ideology, and when that ideology “climate change” is now a $1.5 Trillion industry.

Real Science

Greens get hysterical when forests burn, because they don’t understand anything about science, forests, or nature. Many species of trees can’t exist without fire. Aspens are making a rapid comeback in California, thanks to the fires.

LAKE FIRE: Aspens rising from ashes – Press Enterprise

The Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Northern New Mexico (where I used to work as a wilderness ranger) have the tallest Aspen trees in the world.  These were the result of huge fires during the hot/dry 1890’s.

Spokane Falls Daily Chronicle June 25, 1890

New Mexico has been very wet the last two years, with few fires – and huge new Aspen Groves are growing around Los Alamos, which was hit by several large fires earlier this century.

Not only do greens not understand the climate, but they imagine they can control it. They are complete imbeciles, who have no business influencing policy.

February 10, 1893 : Victorian Bushfires Raging A Few Miles From Melbourne

The city was enveloped in smoke today from, the bush fires which are raging a few miles out of the metropolis.

A destructive bush fire is raging at Mansfield. An immense amount of damage has been done on one run, whereabout 3,000 sheep were roasted and millions of rabbits have been destroyed.

18 Feb 1893 – BUSH FIRES IN VICTORIA. Melbourne, February 10.

CO2 at the time was 280 parts per million.

The Black Thursday bushfires were a devastating series of fires that swept through Victoria on February 6, 1851. They are considered the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, with approximately 5 million hectares, or a quarter of Victoria, being burnt. Twelve lives were lost, along with one million sheep and thousands of cattle.

The year preceding the fires was exceptionally hot and dry and this trend continued into the summer of 1851. On Black Thursday, a northerly wind set in early and the temperature in Melbourne was reported to have peaked at 47.2 degrees C (117 degrees F) at 11:00am. (Wikipedia)

“The temperature became torrid, and on the morning of the 6th of February 1851, the air which blew down from the north resembled the breath of a furnace. A fierce wind arose, gathering strength and velocity from hour to hour, until about noon it blew with the violence of a tornado. By some inexplicable means it wrapped the whole country in a sheet of flame — fierce, awful, and irresistible.”

13 Oct 1947 – FAMOUS VICTORIAN FIRE

In 1851, carbon dioxide levels were around 290 PPM. Today, carbon dioxide pollution levels are around 398 PPM.

Climate change alarmists, like Climate Council’s Tim Flannery and the ABC, claim Australian bush fires are unprecedented and becoming more extreme, thanks to human carbon dioxide pollution emissions.

They tell you this because the ultimate prize of the eco-activist is the control of carbon dioxide. Virtually every human activity, including breathing, releases carbon dioxide. Consequently, greenhouse gases and climate change are of paramount importance to the eco-activist agenda.
