We are being bombarded with claims that 2012 is a record fire year, and that fires are getting worse. I made a post yesterday pointing out that YTD 2012 has had the fewest number of fires in the 10 year long NIFC database, and that there were many more, and much larger fires in the past.
So a few people start arguing over whether or not 2012 is really a record low.
Who cares? The point is that 2012 isn’t anywhere near a record high. Some people need to step up their game. Arguing over the number of angels on the head of a pin is mindless.
