More Fake Science

This from Stephen Heins:

Here is another academic example of scaring people, raising university donations, and justifying the use of grant money: One-eyed certainty in a complex world.

Climate Change Has Doubled Risk of Extreme Fire in California

"....Our paper says that climate change has already doubled the risk of extreme fire weather conditions in California," he said, "and it will double them again over the next couple of decades...perhaps more than double. That's a big change."

Other research, led by Park Williams at the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University and published last year, identified an even steeper increase in summertime wildfires in California, marked by an eight-fold increase in the amount of land burned annually since the 1970s, caused largely, the authors reported, by human-driven climate change.”

Forest management and clear cutting are opposite.

A word from Tim:

More fake science. When you won't store water in a place where you suffer periodic droughts you are cruisin' for a bruisin'. And when you refuse to remove deadwood aka fuel and don't have any water you are guaranteed to have bad wild fires. It has little to do with "climate change" and everything to do with dogmatic people unwilling to indulge in proper forest management. This is just propaganda to give cover to those who want to seize property and human rights.

Consider this:

"On public lands today, vegetation often goes unmanaged and, as a result, becomes the tinder that fuels wildfires. Nearly 7,000 blazes ravaged California in 2016 alone. But for the Quiroste, fire was a powerful tool. They used it to manage a number of food resources, not just grass seeds. And by regularly setting controlled fires, the Quiroste also kept themselves safe from catastrophic wildfires, which feed on dense undergrowth."

Fire is natural in the West, and beneficial too. What we have been doing is suppressing fire for our own benefit. It's understandable, but if you suppress a thing eventually it breaks out. Every see a levee break? California stopped maintaining the levee but still expected it to hold, then blamed carbon dioxide when it failed. The real villains are the politicians and the Gang Green.
