A Burning Truth?

First its hurricanes, now

GLOBAL WARMING IS CAUSING DROUGHT AND DROUGHT IS CAUSING WILDFIRES!

If you want more biased reporting, see the recent spate of articles about this. Particuarly good is the video clip from CNN. They interview noted global warming alarmist, Michael Hanemann, director of the California Climate Change Center. Naturally, they don't interview anyone who is a skeptic of the link between global warming and wildfires. According to Hanemann, "The last decade is clearly warmer than the previous 400 years and these fires and the drought are associated with that unusual increase in warming."

Well, if the theory holds true, we should see a general trend upward in the amount of fires in the last 10 years. For those of you familiar with this drill, you already know what the data are going to show. Take a look at this page from the National Interagency Fire Center. No trend in either the number of fires or acreage.

Of course, you can't expect the media and global warming alarmists (but I repeat myself) to base their doomsday scenarios on actual evidence.
