Blame Games for WildFires Rage and Over Reactions Spread

Wildfires in the nation’s western states continue to spread death and destruction, but it is far from a nationwide apocalypse, according to data from the National Interagency Fire Center, backed up by Census figures and early newspaper reports with Department of Agriculture statistics.

Critics say liberal states and environmentalists are enacting policies that prohibit natural and prescribed fires from burning away expendable fuel.

The Atlantic (who tried to get the military to turn on President Trump with anonymous sources) ran a story by Annie Lowrey warning “Climate hell is here. We cannot stand it. And we cannot afford it either.”

Enormous Pyryocumulonimbus Cloud Captured Over California

As California battles the biggest fire outbreaks in its history a giant pyryocumulonimbus cloud formed last week. This happens when fires become strong enough that their heat mass punches through the atmosphere, spawning fire tornados and lightning that can carry embers for miles.

Although rare, the clouds were witnessed during the Australian fires that began in September, 2019. Both California and Australia are suffering through environmental policies that restricted fire maintenance. To make matters worse California released many of the state prisoners who were trained to help the fire lines.

The image below was taken by Thalia Dockery on Sept. 5 over California’s “Creek Fire” during a flight from San Jose to Las Vegas.

Derecho Storm Damages Midwest Crops
