Fine. Believe what you want. I don’t understand why you disregard the extract I provided, unless it is because it contradicted your position. Since you seem partial to newspapers, here is another one for you (google remains your friend) https://www.sfchronicle.com/science...ngerprints-of-climate-change-all-13128585.php Please note, the article says climate change may have an effect, but more importantly it refs some peer reviewed studies. I certainly don’t think, and never said warming temps were solely to blame. But going back to Ockham...more heat, dryer fuel, bigger fire. And in case it was hard to follow, I never implied these fires were combusting, simultaneously due to climate change or anything else. Some of the comments seem to think this was the case, it is not.
