The usual nutcases are out claiming that houses burned in Colorado because of climate change. The only thing that changed is that a bunch of clueless people built houses in places that were a fire waiting to happen.
The lead story in today’s dENVER pOST is the former Colorado Springs fire chief saying that the Waldo Canyon fire was just a matter of time. (I won’t quote the dENVER pOST nORMAL because it seems that the only way they can make money is by suing bloggers who quote them.)
If you build a house in the middle of a pile of kindling wood, it is going to burn.
