Think Progress says “The West Is Literally On Fire” and drought stricken Colorado is burning up.
As expected, the 2015 wildfire season has meant more bad news for drought-stricken Western states. As of June 30, 45 wildfires large active wildfires burned from Alaska down to Arizona and as far east as Colorado.

In the real world, we have had one of the quietest fire seasons on record in the Rocky Mountains, and there is no drought.
An update on Colorado’s paltry 2015 wildfire season
With drought extinguished from the state, it is not surprising that there has been next to no media coverage on Colorado wildfires this year. There really hasn’t been much significant to report on. The cumulative graph below, provided by the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC), tells the story. The blue line represents this year, while the dashed grey line is “normal.” Data contained in this graph is from the entire “Rocky Mountain” fire district,
Of course, you didn’t need this graph to tell you that the fire season has been thankfully tame this year. Just look to the sky, maybe towards the majestic Long’s Peak. Visibility this summer has been exceptional

Joe Romm created fake media coverage of Colorado’s almost non-existent fire season, because he is paid to lie about the climate. It is hard to start fires when the state is “extremely moist”
It hasn’t always been like this – In 1898 fires burned up almost one quarter of the state.

But this gang of criminals are worse than they seem. According to NASA, 1898 was one of the coldest years on record.
“People are literally dying in the streets from coast to coast, and around the globe! And more people are dying with each passing decade!”
Vague and meaningless alarmism is fun, literally!
I wonder if cloud-to-ground lightning strikes increased because of climate change?
They certainly increased around here in my neck of the woods at about 11:00 on Saturday. Flash to bang was almost simultaneous on two strikes and we lost power for over 3 hours. Think I am gaining ground on convincing my ex-fiance that dumping $4,000 into a natural gas fired whole house generator is a good idea.
Sure would give me some piece of mind when I’m on the road. Especially during the cold winter months.
Which Climate Criminal is responsible for the Palmer Drought Index? I live in NW Montana which the Palmer DI has listed as in a severe drought. The annual precipitation for this area is 25″. Since January I have recorded 23″ of precipitation. One needs to keep in mind that the majority of our precipitation occurs between the months of October and April. We are currently on line to have one of our wettest years on record and these criminals have us listed as severe drought? Llamame caca de toro!!
