    Recent studies prove those fires never happened. Using chicken bones from Bali and eye of newt from the Alps, grantologists modeled fires in the Americas with 67 different GCM’s to finally disprove all forest fires before 1979.

    It sure is interesting to see how much we have learned in my lifetime.

    • What Martin means is “It sure is interesting to see how much we have forgotten in my lifetime”

        I still don’t see your point, Steven. You write about seeing forest fires as a serious danger in 1936 as if you mean that was wrong, or that seeing forest fires as a problem now is wrong because we saw them as a problem in 1936. You appear to be forgetting that in 1936, we didn’t have the forest fire fighting capabilities we have now. We didn’t have helicopters. We didn’t have tankers that dropped tons of water and chemicals on fires at a time. We didn’t have the chainsaws and bulldozers we have now, and those shiny silver blankets you climb under when you get caught in a fire. Nor did we have the forest management techniques we have now. We didn’t have the fire prevention techniques we have now.

        Didn’t we also have more forests back then?

          No, there are more forests now. Read “The Skeptical Environmentalist”, and see if you might learn something.

          The very huge fires, like the Idaho fire of 1910, fanned by high winds and burning literally 2 million acres overnight, could have never been stopped by helicopters, tankers and chain saws. It would be like a couple of gnats trying to stop a rampaging elephant.

      You are not “WE”, Marty.

      Nor does it seem YOU have learned anything in your short lifetime, except lying, insulting, smearing and patronising.

      Did I mention lying?

    He forgot nothing MS. The point is we had more fires, and more severe fires in the past corresponding with greater droughts and lower stream flow.

    There is zero data showing a global increase in droughts. CO2 is irrelevant to drought.
