    Between 1903 and 1908 nearly one million acres of forest burned in New York State. However, these forest fires were nothing compared to the Prairie fires that routinely consumed as much as 150 million acres per year prior to the 20th century.

    Tundra Shrubs Turn into Trees as Arctic Warms

    Tundra is by definition a cold, treeless landscape. But scientists have found that in a part of the Eurasian Arctic, willow and alder shrubs, once stunted by harsh weather, have been growing upward to the height of trees in recent decades.

    The reason for the change: the warming Arctic climate, they say.

    Roughly 30 years ago, trees were nearly unknown there. Now, 10 percent to 15 percent of the land in the southern part of the northwestern Eurasian tundra, which stretches between Finland and western Siberia, is covered by new tree-size shrubs, which stand higher than 6.6 feet (2 meters), new research indicates.

    The Weather Channel said the fire in New Mexico was a “record”.

    Before 1988 all forest fires were sustainable and had no carbon footprint.
    Isn’t that right Mr Hansen?
