The world is on fire...

While the overall area of annual burn in the world has remained relatively static in this period, the research indicates a shifting regional fire pattern that is affecting more forests and fewer grasslands.

Keep reading and you see lots of speculation and scare tactics, typical Guardian tripe.

well yes and no..... no doubt we humans are incredibly agressive and capable of upsetting, destroying eco systems, We restrict government intervention and give free rein to corporate profit, We are ruled by the IMF, altho that is changing.

Me, global warming, natural causes, who knows, but we live like pigs, we ignore pollution, we ignore garbage, we actually export trash. We don't even see the pacific plastic island we have created.... if we keep going in 20 years if might be a continent.

Fine, global warming is a hoax. Carbon tax a rip off. If you cry about hurricanes don't live in Louisiana. You don't like forest fires don't live in California, You don't want to lose that beach front home on the East Coast...... move to North Dakota. I'm not sure how to avoid snow in Texas tho,. move to ???

Ultimately, we are pigs, oblivious to consequences, driven to consume more, never less, our financial model insists on GROWTH !!! at any cost. If we spent $100 last year we must spend $110 this year. If we earned $100 last year we MUST earn $115 next year. Totally unsustainable. Only possible if we continue raping the land. Imposing ourselves on other cultures. Eventually the military expenditures will not be enough. Out world gets smaller every day. Guys like Musk and populating Mars give the greedy and the dreamers hope. And pions like you and I give them the fuel to move ahead.

Wolves know it is a lie. Birds know as we destroy the wetlands along their coastal fly ways we will kill them. Fish have no reason to live in fish farms. Kobi cattle will end up mutating to survive the hell we have created.... If you are truly religious, you know our maker will find a way to right our wrongs.

Me, I just believe we live like pigs. We elect people to guide the masses. We do that with regulations to restrict economic, corporate greed. We the people own the world. If we give up that responsibility........... well we are lost.

I use prescribed fire to reduce the risk of accidental fire as well as improving/restoring historic habitat. Also helps timber growth. Win/win/win.

Not to dismiss real problems but there are plenty of scare tactics around as the fear mongers have control of the narrative and an economic interest in promoting fear. I live in a place subject to hurricanes and tornados. I also had an inch of ice and temps in the teens last week. Everyone on Earth has to live with some risk.
