Fire Devastation Revisited

On March 15 we had a grass fire west of Fort Collins, which was caused by a combination of a whacked out government scientist, and Chinook winds after several weeks of cold weather – which had inhibited new grass growth. The usual nutcases got hysterical over the fire and declared the end of the world.

I took the picture below earlier this afternoon, before today’s deluge of rain. The burn area is now emerald green. Fire returns nutrients to the soil, and is an essential part of the ecosystem.

    Isn’t it amazing how the Good Lord sustains and restores his Creation? (Even to the point of mitigating the effects of the green arsonists?)

    Any warmist visiting this article will believe you photoshopped the greenery, such natural beauty could not exist in a catastrophic global warming world.

    Hide the match sticks from the academic alarmists.

    Up here in southern alberta, we have native indians call “the black foot”….because in the spring, they would set fire to the Prairie grasses(thus black feet after the fires as they walked on the ‘carbon’…. a few months later, with beautiful new grass, the buffalo would return….they had that figured out thousands of years ago. Crack eco types call it devastation…

    Yup. Mother Gaia’s “Reset Button”. Sometimes she just needs a little bit of help to get the button pushed. (It’s fun, if sometimes dangerous, turning overgrown, browned-out areas into lush, green living spaces for the critters to enjoy and multiply within.) I’ve got thousands of photos of fire and its effects, if you’d like some, Steve. 🙂
