Where's 15? There's 15.
Idiot illegitimate "governor" Inslee is squawking the standard Gaian line. The Carlton fire is supposedly the largest since statehood Because KKKarbon.
We must expect things to get worse every year Because KKKarbon.
We must all commit hara-kiri to save The Planet Because KKKarbon.
The "fire season" has been growing steadily for the last 15 years Because KKKarbon.
First, let's look at the weather in that part of the state.
I separated out spring temp and prec and annual temp and prec. Where's the 15-year upward trend? Nowhere. Temps went up decisively about 100 years ago, and since then no long-term pattern. Judging solely by the spring data, this year would be slightly easier than usual.
So why did this fire grow faster than usual? Not because of anything extraordinary in this year's weather. It was in fact a human-caused problem, and as fucking always
the humans involved CAN BE NAMED. As fucking always the humans are the state's Environmental Genocide Squad, which calls itself DNR to hide its true purposes. Instead of taking steps to halt the fire, they stood around taking pictures,
undoubtedly so they could jack off later.
How about illegitimate "governor" Inslee's citation of 15 years? That's easy. Same cause. Environmental terrorists eliminated logging. Here's
a description, with plenty of graphs, of Oregon's decline in logging due to terrorism. (I couldn't find similar data for Wash online.) Note especially this graph.
There's your 15 years of increased fires, fuckhead Inslee. Evil KKKarbon didn't do it. You did it.
