The best explanations then for regional upticks in fires are differences in forest management practices, arson, as well as improper maintenance of power lines in the case of California, or combinations of factors that…
This is a classic example of the overreliance on models (and now AI) in climate research, instead of actual data.
Republican Rep. Byron Donalds blamed “green new deal stuff” for the devastating wildfire in Maui, saying an electric company ignored “the basic things.”
But the country’s official wildfire statistics do not show this suspected trend.
Climate change has little to do with such grass/range fires. Many steps can be taken to reduce the grass/range wildfire risk.

We are not learning as long as we just keep blaming global warming
Water requires “true conversations about equity”
This event was not the result of climate change, Hurricane Dora, or an extended drought. It resulted from an unusually intense mountain wave/downslope windstorm produced by a fairly rare convergence…
We can take steps to prevent this from happening again, including understanding why this event occurred and building the observation, warning, and action infrastructure as California.
Hawaii is one of the most fire-prone states in the U.S.
Very strong trade winds developed yesterday, as a large pressure difference (gradient) formed between a strong subtropical high and hurricane Dora to the south.
it’s become clear that human agency that’s the root cause of most of these fires.
The CO2 fertilization effect is both real and substantial in both beneficial and harmful ways.
…many extreme weather events hinge on random factors, with climate change’s effects relatively small compared to the random variations inherent in our complex atmospheric system.
The IPCC has not detected or attributed fire occurrence or area burned to human-caused climate change
Wildfires, very much in the news recently, have tapered downward significantly over the recent decades, contradicting the doom and gloom spread by climate alarmists and media.
Heartland Institution senior fellow Anthony Watts breaks down the science behind the Canadian wildfires on ‘The Ingraham Angle.’
The media and climate activists are again weaponizing wildfires and linking them to climate change. Wildfires, both globally and in Canada, have been declining significantly.
True to form, mainstream media has been quick to associate these terrifying and spectacular natural events with (anthropogenic) climate change. Let’s look at the facts.
