Back to Philosophy in college. If thing A causes thing B and we KNOW that thing A is true, then it follows that thing B must be true.
B=More Forest Fires
Doesn’t look good for Bambi and friends in our local forests:
<i>Forest experts generally agree that as climate change makes the world warmer and drier, wildfires will break out more often.</i>
But what if I told you that B=False:
There is no increase in forest fires in the US. The numbers above are Year to Date through 6/28.
2016 ranks 9th in the last 11 years in the number of fires and ranks 4th in acres burned – and it’s slowing down.
So, either Global Warming doesn’t cause more forest fires OR there is no Global Warming.
