Forest Fire Burn Acreage Plummets

According to the National Interagency Fire Center, 9.4 million acres burned in the US this year. This is down 80% since the 1930s.

And forest fires are down 90% since CO2 was at pre-industrial levels.

Fire Policy – Cover & TOC

There is no correlation between forest fires and atmospheric CO2 — but excellent correlation between fires and extreme heat — which peaked in the 1930s.

Rather than doing actual science, government climate scientists prefer to alter data to match their worthless models.

    We had much better forest practices before the Greens stuck their big fat noses into everything and before the Sierra Club was filing stupid lawsuits to block logging sales and try and ban livestock from the areas and frankly the Eco-Wackos all need to be put on the fire lines along with tree sitting nuts like Julia(Butterfly)Hill and her fellow green nutcases and Moonbeam Brown is a blabbering nit-wit and liberal Dumb-O-Crat

      WORLD WIDE forest fire acreage burned has increased 1000%.

        It is significant that Rakooi references “warmer….day and night” in his next comment. One solid characteristic of an urban heat island is that cement and pavement release their heat all night long. Along with urban sprawl, 24 hour average temperatures have been inflated.

    Once again, you take an isolated Regional or Local Study and exaggerate it into world conclusion.

    The US had a severe heat wave … that is ONLY the USA.
    and then you select a graph not about world temperatures….
    but you choose one that talks ONLY about US temps over 95 degrees.
    NEVER MIND THAT
    2014 was BY FAR warmer…day and night, every day. than any of those years your CHERRY PICK to represent your political point.
    2014 was the Warmest year on record.
    until
    2015 was the Warmest year on record.
    until
    2016 was the Warmest year on record
    2017 is in competition with one of these years….yet to be determined.
    ALL are warmer than ANY of those 1930 temps you reference
    AND they are WORLD RECORDS….
    NOT JUST IN A REGIONAL HEAT WAVE…like your USA citations.

      Global average temperature is something climatologists invented to promote global warming. Who was measuring and calculating it in the thirties?

        Rakooi, Canada and Mexico suffered the same depression era heatwave as the USA.
        ONCE AGAIN, YOU’RE WRONG.
