90% Of Fires Are Human Caused, But Climate Crisis (scam) Doom Makes Them Worse Or Something

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

KTVL in Medford, Oregon, thinks they’re on to something, a way to dunk on climate realists as well as propping up the Cult of Climastrology. They’re doing the reverse

90 percent of wildfires are human-caused, but climate change isn’t helping

Ninety percent of wildfires are human-caused, but according to local scientists in Oregon, climate change is not helping and is exacerbating the historic fire and weather events that we continue to see year after year.

Senior meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Medford, Shad Keene told News 10 that, “A body of research has shown, that the wildfire season in the west has become more severe and has a longer duration and a warming climate contributes to this.”

While it’s easy to point at the hundreds of fires along the west coast and blame it on climate change, 90 percent of wildfires are in fact human caused.

Authorities have confirmed that the two fires that merged into the Almeda Fire burning 2000 structures to the ground were both human-caused. One of those fires is currently being investigated as arson with charges filed against suspect 41-year-old Michael Bakkela.

However, according to Keene, climate change is also playing its part by creating the conditions that increasingly favor the spread of these wildfires year after year.

Even if a warmer climate is making things worse, there’s no scientific proof that it is mostly/solely caused by the actions of Mankind. I’ll say it again: mankind does bear a small responsibility: greenhouse gases play a very small part, mostly from agriculture and landfills. The bigger part from mankind is actually land use and the Urban Heat Island effect. Regardless, it is amusing (not in a good way) that KTVL, along with others pushing this meme, are less concerned with arsonists and mistakes causing huge wildfires in their attempt to promote Cult of Climastrology talking points. Are you seeing any stories demonizing arsonists, along with things like poor maintenance by power companies.

“Although it’s difficult to attribute to a single event like this to climate change, a warming climate increases the chances of events like this to occur,” Keene said referring to the numerous fires that spread last week.

Every time, eh, every time with that “difficult to attribute” stuff while blaming every event on Other People driving fossil fueled vehicles and living a modern life.

    That HAARP focusing barge I followed from Seattle down to 1,000 miles off the coast of northern California was instrumental in diverting Pacific Ocean moisture laden air from California down to Mexico. For the past 8 years. That helped as well as DEW and arson fires. Neutron flux enrichment of low level radioactive planted isotopes also seems to have been used.
