Wildfire Fanaticism

According to California’s governor, Gavin Newsom, “global warming” caused the big fires ravaging his state, as well as its two “ideological sidekicks”, Washington and Oregon:

“The debate is over around climate change,” Newsom said as he toured a burn area in Northern California. “Just come to the state of California. Observe it with your own eyes. It’s not an intellectual debate. It’s not even debatable any longer.”

He also said he’s “exhausted that we have to continue to bait this issue. This is a climate damn emergency. This is real.” So don’t blame him.

But there’s every reason to blame him and his “greenie” policies that are quite literally “fueling” the fire destruction.

Since the entire press that is searchable on Google repeats the global warming “blather”, I decided to consult some real science and got quite a different picture, and not a flattering one to Newsom.

According to the Cal State University fire scientists, whose website indicates they are the only ones studying this, the number one reason for the increased incidence of California’s fires is:

The forest floor grows dense with flammable dead branches and brush when it’s not cleared out, either manually or when burned. In many parts of California’s woodlands, these forest “fuels” have not burned or been cleared for decades, due in part to fire suppression policies by state and federal agencies.

“One of the reasons we’re observing more fires is because of 100 years of poor Forest Service policy where we didn’t allow prescribed fire or wildfires to burn,” says Craig Clements, Ph.D., director of the San José State University’s Fire Weather Research Laboratory and associate professor of meteorology and climate science.

To understand the history and context of “wildfire suppression” in the U.S., you have to go back to the Great Fires of 1910. After these enormous wildfires ravaged three million acres across Idaho, Montana and Washington, the then-young U.S. Forest Service made it their singular policy to stop fires whenever possible.

It wasn’t until the 1970s that policy shifted from fire control to fire management, with the recognition that some fire—including prescribed burns—is a necessary part of the wood land ecosystem. But decades of still-unburned forest means today’s wood lands are dense with vegetation that’s ready to spark. Drought conditions have only intensified the impending threat in many parts of the state.

In a 2009 report, Chris Dicus, Ph.D., professor of wood land fire and fuels management at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, wrote that before the Gold Rush, there were approximately 50 to 70 trees per acre in California’s forestland’s. Today, there are more than 400 trees per acre.

Another contributing factor to the growing “forest fuel load” is the increasing number of dead or dying trees caused by bark beetle infestations. These insects, along with the drought, are responsible for killing 129 million trees across California since 2010, quite literally adding “fuel to the fire.”

The sheer size of the current “rash of fires” would attest to a lot of uncleared growth, much of it damaged and dead from beetles. Nobody was allowed to clear that brush because … “ecology.” Never mind that the natural state of California is to have small natural fires that groom the brush and help wildflowers take seed.

Additionally, California’s topography, as cited in the piece, can create some big weather patterns as well as fire tornadoes due to the slopes of the land. Nope, the “greenies” want California to resemble the forest-primeval of Wagnerian Germany, with lots of trees. To heck with the climate conditions that include a natural propensity for fires. Uncleared brush and dead trees mean bigger fires.

The second reason listed is “climate change,” but wait! The scientists very specifically cite heat waves, which doesn’t sound like the crazy hot-cold-wild phenomenon bruited about by the climate change lobby. It’s perfectly true that the state has been having heat waves, and yes, the drying action of the heat tends to create tinder for fires. The heat waves come and the heat waves go. Because they’re cyclical, they are not a constant factor supporting the claim that the entire earth’s temperature is heating up. Instead, they are the result of high-pressure phenomena driving the temperature higher in localized places, which in this case happens to be California.

And where do these heat waves come from? Well, solar activity is one candidate – the world is in a sunspot drought called a “solar minimum” which, while it could create cooler temperatures, also leaves huge parts of the sun’s atmosphere exposed, according to this U.K. Express article, citing more scientists. The jury is out about what the sunspots do, but there are credible sources that say they do contribute to rising temperatures.

High-pressure systems are another. According to HowItWorks.com:

“A heatwave is a period of unusually hot or humid weather that lasts at least two or three days – and remaining hot throughout the nights – that affects large areas. Heat waves are caused by a system of higher atmospheric pressure, whereby air from upper levels of the atmosphere descends and rotates out. As it descends, it compresses, increasing the temperature. The outward flow, meanwhile, makes it difficult for other systems to enter the area, and the large size and slow speed of the hot air causes the heatwave to remain for days or even weeks. The lack of clouds means that an affected area is struck with strong sunlight.”

To attribute the entire “global warming” phenomena to a localized “weather” event in one place is kind of absurd.

The third reason cited by the Cal State fire scientists is human activity – leftist housing policies drive poorer people into the wilderness areas where fires are more likely to happen. The scientists say that 95% of fires are caused by people, either “intentionally or unintentionally.”

The proof of the pudding that California’s fires are not caused by some vaguely defined global warming is the fact that these fires are only happening in places where bad “greenie policy” is the rule. California and its sidekicks Oregon and Washington are up to their necks in these “fire-starter” greenie policies.

You sure as heck don’t see this stuff going on in Mexico, where there are some fires, but they rarely occur near populated areas and are fairly insignificant in scope. Brush is “cleared” in Mexico. Fire “hazards” are removed. Keep in mind that the weather and topography are about the same in Mexico as in California, except that Mexico is actually somewhat hotter.

To paraphrase Tom Wolfe, it seems as if the dark night of global warming, which hovers over the world, somehow only lands in California. The west coast governors who “blame” global warming for their states’ ills would be smart to ask Mexico how to fix this. But they won’t. They’ll just keep blaming “global warming” and hope it leads to more “taxes and more state power.” To the rest of us, though, it’s clear enough — California’s localized conditions are the perfect “tinder” for creating big, big, fires.

This is exactly the same thing that happened with the historically devastating fires that happened in Australia last summer. 90% of the fires that devastated Australia’s east coast, killed many people and wiped out huge, countless numbers of endangered wildlife, were deliberately started by “climate change activists”. If they can’t find a climate crisis naturally, they’ll make one. And then blame it on freedom, capitalism and anyone who isn’t a frightened rabbit.

According to the Cal Fire San Bernardino Unit, “the El Dorado Fire, burning near Oak Glen in San Bernardino County, was caused by a smoke generating pyrotechnic device, used during a gender reveal party.” Chalk this one up to stupidity, not climate change.

Likewise, the Almeda Fire in Oregon, which has burned more than 600 homes, cannot be tied to climate change whatsoever because it was caused by “arsonists.”  As Ashland Police Chief Tighe O’Meara said, “We have good reason to believe that there was a human element to it. We’re going to pursue it as a criminal investigation until we have reason to believe that it was otherwise.”

The fires in California and Oregon are not due to climate change. They are due to “arson” and sheer “stupidity” on the part of many, including those who are responsible for the environmental stewardship that is supposed to prevent them in the first place.

There are several more reports of arsonists instigating the blazes that are currently destroying hundreds of thousands of acres in the West. Despite these facts, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), recently said, “Mother Earth is angry. She’s telling us, whether, she’s telling us with hurricanes on the Gulf Coast, fires in the West, whatever it is, that climate crisis is real and has an impact.”

Of course, Pelosi didn’t offer one iota of “evidence” to support her contention that climate change is somehow responsible for all this. And since when did Mother Earth begin speaking to the Speaker of the House?

Not to be outdone, California Gov. Gavin Newsom also laid blame for his state’s out-of-control wildfires on climate change. “I say this lovingly — not as an ideologue, but as someone who prides himself on being open to argument, interested in evidence — but I quite literally have no patience for climate change deniers. It’s completely inconsistent, that point of view, with the reality on the ground, the facts as we are experiencing. You may not believe it intellectually, but your own eyes, your own experiences tell a different story.”

Conveniently, Newsom failed to mention that California has one of the poorest records of implementing commonsense “environmental” stewardship protocols, which no doubt has played a significant factor in the Golden State’s proclivity for wildfires over the past several years.

According to California’s state oversight agency, “During its review, the Commission found that California’s forests suffer from neglect and mismanagement, resulting in overcrowding that leaves them susceptible to disease, insects and wildfire.”

In other words, under decades of Democratic leadership, California has woefully under-invested in forest management efforts, which have left forests grossly overgrown and prone to wildfire.

Making matters worse, California’s insistence on becoming the “renewable energy utopia” of the United States has led the state’s primary energy utility, PG&E, to disregard properly maintaining existing energy infrastructure.

As the San Diego Union Tribune reports, “every dollar spent on additional costs of renewable energy results in a dollar not available to spend on culling vegetation, insulating power lines, placing lines underground and other measures.”

As if that were not enough, the article also notes, a report prepared by the independent consulting firm Beacon Economics for the San Francisco-based think tank Next 10 estimated California wildfires last year produced about nine times more emissions than were reduced across the entire state’s economy between 2016 and 2017 — and wildfires contributed more than the commercial, residential or agriculture sectors did in 2017.”

Ironically, Newsom and his predecessors naïve attempt to make the Golden State the renewable energy “Mecca” has actually led to more carbon emissions because the state’s abundant forests have been turned into a giant “tinderbox.”

Adding insult to injury, Newsom has pledged to double-down on his efforts to make California more reliant on renewable energy, regardless of the uptick in wildfires and rolling blackouts.

And the claim that wildfires are increasing is “100 percent false”. According to the Congressional Research Service, the prevalence of wildfires has decreased over the past three decades. As the report notes, “Over the past 10 years, there were an average of 64,100 wildfires annually and an average of 6.8 million acres burned annually. In 2019, 50,477 wildfires burned 4.7 million acres nationwide, below the annual average for both statistics.”

 John Adams once said, “Facts are stubborn things. They cannot be altered by our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions.” Fact-shunners like Gov. Newsom and Nancy Pelosi ought to put their wishes and passions aside and deal with the reality that their state is being decimated by wildfires due to their incompetence and ignorance, not because of so-called climate change.

“Sniffy” Joe Biden also “chimed” in. As expected, he condemned Trump as a “climate denier” calling him a “climate arsonist” drumming up fear of fires, floods, hurricanes, and blamed it on Trump, which is rich considering that “ANTIFA” is Joe Biden’s base.

“If Donald Trump gets a second term, these hellish events will become more common, more devastating, and more deadly,” he forecasted. Biden also said Trump has disdain for “science,” but that science has been purchased by the Illuminati and they get to fund and then cherry pick data that suits their agenda.

Another “greenie”, Jay Inslee ran for president with only one platform in mind—“climate change. He flopped and dropped, but climate change has always been on the Illuminati’s agenda and their “plannedemic” hasn’t changed that.

Those at the top of the pyramid still want us to transition to a new “de-industrialized age” in which the middle class are expected to give up “fossil fuels, their cars, their air conditioning, their jobs as well as their human dignity”, and become “poor serfs dependent on a leviathan globalist and socialist government.” Politicians such as Jay Inslee and Gavin Newsom are their “point men” out to make that transition happen.

Inslee and Newsom claim the millions of acres on fire in the west were caused by said climate change, without offering one particle of proof whatsoever. In fact, it’s most likely the fires were set by their allies, the BLM and Antifa radical socialists, who were only too happy to peacefully “burn it all down.”

The fires didn’t occur naturally due to lightning strikes. They were sparked by anarchist matches, the same anarchists who burned Democrat cities while the Democratic mayors and governors stood by silently, or even encouraged them.

All stops are now being pulled to defeat President Trump from winning a second term. The Democrat Socialists couldn’t get him out of office with their invented Russia collusion witch hunt. They couldn’t remove him by impeachment. So they trotted out a fake pandemic and blamed it on Trump. They will blame the fires on Trump. They certainly won’t blame themselves for their own forest mismanagement. They will accuse Trump of inaction and being a climate change “denier.”

The “Illuminati’s” continue to push their Green New Deal, Agendas 21 and 30, as well as socialism, which will result in the conflagration of the middle class.

Unfortunately, we are living in a world where facts don’t matter much anymore. For instance, the wildfires that have swept across the western United States over the past few weeks are being almost universally blamed on climate change, even though the facts tell otherwise.

Amazing! The global warming crisis/ forest fire “fanaticism” seem to be only localized to Blue States!
