The New York Times is lying about climate yet again, claiming that last year was a record fire year at 10.1 million acres and it was due to climate.
The level of fraud is off-scale. The New York Times reported in 1938 that more than twice that many acres burned in 1937. Why didn’t Matt Richtel and Fernanda Santos research their own paper?
The US Forest Service reported that five times as many acres burned in the early 1930’s
But their fraud gets much worse. When CO2 was at pre-industrial levels, forest burned almost fifteen times as much land in the US.
Outside of Alaska and California, last year was not a big fire year. The Rocky Mountains were very wet and had one of the quietest fire seasons on record. The constant climate fraud from the New York Times gives me something to write about almost every single day.
