“[The 2021 IPCC report] finds no discernible trends for hurricanes, winter storms, floods, tornadoes or thunderstorms… Not surprisingly [though], these findings were scarcely mentioned in [mainstream, left wing media] coverage of the report.”
“The UN Secretary-General [among many others] claim[ed back in 2019] that ‘climate disruption is happening now, and it is happening to all of us… Every week brings new climate-related devastation. Floods. Drought. Heat waves. Wildfires. Superstorms.”… Yet, [even] the data [available at the time didn’t] support… such claims.”
“[There is a measured] decline in U.S. disaster losses since 1990 as a proportion of U.S. GDP… [which] is the recommended methodology of the United Nations…”
Weather and Climate Disaster Losses So Far in 2022, Still Not Getting Worse
Nearly all extreme weather is declining or at or near record lows
“The warmest day on Earth in history appears to have been in California in July of 1913.“
[Decades before any significant anthropogenic CO2 had been added to Earth’s atmosphere.]
26 of the 50 U.S. states set their all-time high temperature records during the 1930s [rather than recently during the global warming hysteria] — which records still stand (though some have since been tied). And an additional 11 state all-time high temperature records were set before 1930, and only two states have all-time record high temperatures that were set in the 21st century (South Dakota and South Carolina).
“Most of the temperature-related mortality burden [is] attributable to the contribution of cold.… [rather] than by heat.”
“[F]or every place that there [are] warm anomalies, there are places with cool anomalies; it’s nature’s balancing act… According to the Fourth U.S. National Climate Assessment, the average duration of warm spells (heat waves) has declined from around eleven days during the 1930s to 6.5 days during the 2000s. In other words, the average duration of heat waves have declined by nearly 41% since the 1930s.”
Extreme weather has occurred with monotonous regularity for millions of years, the vast majority of which occurred long before the Industrial Revolution.

“Extreme weather is an integral part of the Earth’s climate. Throughout the recorded history of the Earth’s climate, extreme weather events have always occurred somewhere, and are caused by large-scale atmosphere ocean flow patterns and their complex interaction with local/regional weather and climate features. An examination of the 20th century climate of North America reveals that the decades of 1920s and 1930s, known as the Dust Bowl years, witnessed perhaps the most extreme climate over the Great American Plains and elsewhere. There were recurring droughts and heat waves on the Canadian/American Prairies.”

No Long-Term Trend in Frequency, Strength of Landfalling Hurricanes
“[In a] scientific paper by lead authors Park Williams and John Abatzoglou titled ‘Observed Impacts of Anthropogenic Climate Change on Wildfire in California‘… [t]he authors… have hitched their [scholarly] fame and fortune to pushing a very simpl[listic] claim that [global warming] drives bigger [California] wildfires. As will be seen [in this article], their advocacy appears to have caused them to stray from objective scientific analyses.“
“[L]arge, high-intensity wildfires [in southern California] predate modern [global warming and] fire suppression policy.”
Western Wildfires Are NOT Caused by ‘Record Heat’
“A February 2018 report from the California state government documented ‘California’s forests suffer from neglect and mismanagement, resulting in overcrowding that leaves them susceptible to disease, insects and wildfire.‘“
[‘Climate change‘ was not assigned any blame for any recent California wildfires. Neither, btw, was arson.]
College professor held in wildland arson spree near California’s massive Dixie Fire
“[W]ith the arrival of Euro-American settlers in the West, [they] stopped the regular burning [of coniferous & boreal forests]… [Not surprisingly,] Forests grew thicker. With the rise of widespread federal and state ownership of forests in the West, management with the ax, firehose, firebreaks, and roads replaced regular widespread forest fires. For nearly 80 years, the U.S. Forest Service… drove thousands of miles of roads deep into the forests to allow logging. The roads also created artificial fire breaks and allowed access for firefighters into the backwoods to fight fires when they started, typically far from settled areas… By 1995, [leftist political] concerns about the spotted owl and a [resulting] change in forest management philosophy from one of productive use to natural ecosystem management resulted in thousands of miles of forest roads being closed and ripped out. Soon thereafter, timber harvests plunged [and tens of thousands of logging jobs were lost]… The same decline in logging, and the destruction of forest roads, was common throughout Western public forests. This has resulted in overcrowded forests and the easier spread of insect infestations, such as bark beetles, which have killed an untold number of trees [any resident of western states — especially residents of Colorado — can attest to this fact]. Many federal forests [in the U.S. West] now contain more dead and dying timber than living trees. And since loggers can no longer clear large areas of forests and firefighters can’t get to fires, except from the air if conditions are right, wildfires are on the rise again. Sadly, hundreds of towns, homes, and businesses are being burned out… With so much fuel, these fires are different. Rather than replenishing the soil, they burn so hotly that they often kill key microbes in the soil. This leaves millions of acres of land denuded for decades, looking like moonscapes. Under the current federal policy of letting nature take its course, loggers usually can’t even get into burnt-over areas to clear fallen burnt timber and replant new trees in areas where, with human help, they might possibly take root and flourish. So, for political reasons, [Joe] Biden [and the rest of the Democrat party]… want to blame modest recent warming for the scope and intensity of wildfires in Western states… The true culprit is more than 30 years of forest mismanagement.”
“[E]cologists and fire scientists estimate that prehistoric fires were worse, burning between 4.4 million and 11.8 million acres per year. On a national scale, data from the National Interagency Fire Center shows a downward trend for both fires and acres burned from 1926 through 2019.”
“Man-made climate change” reduced US wildfires to lowest levels in 400 years
Wildfires are far less frequent and severe than was the case throughout the first half of the 20th century. Occasional upticks in current wildfire activity still result in far less land burnt than was the case throughout the 20th century.
Environmental Expert: Wildfires not due to climate change
Anatomy of the false link between forest fires and anthropogenic CO2
“Despite media claims of increasing wildfires across the globe, data show the opposite is in fact the case: wildfires have been trending downwards since NASA started recording data.”
“The [2019-20] Australian wildfires [were] tragic… [but only] in the states of New South Wales (home of Sydney) and Victoria (Melbourne) [were] the fires… much larger than they have been in the previous few decades… [In fact the burnt areas that year were] vastly smaller than the 1851 Black Thursday fire, which in one day burnt a quarter of Victoria or 5 million hectares… [The actual, official fire data themselves reveal] two things. First, that the area burnt in Australia [in 2019-20 was] not increasing and [was] likely decreasing [compared to previous decades’ fires]. This result is similar to what we see across the world — lower, not higher burnt area. Second, the [2019-20] Australian fire season in terms of area burnt [was] not unprecedented compared to the recent past.”
Fires burned 10% of Australia’s land surface on average every year in 20th century
In [the 21st] century, it burned 6% (2001-19)
We now have the data for 2019-20, the year with “Australia ablaze“.
[So, everyone knows anthropogenic global warming caused those fires, right?]
24 Australians Charged With Intentionally Setting Massive 2019-20 Bushfires
Now who could be starting all these [2019 Australian] forest fires in order to attract attention to an agenda?
[If Mr. Kassam had asked ASND, we would have gladly provided the answer…]
Thousands march in Sydney climate protest as Australia wildfires worsen, new evacuations ordered
The disastrous 2019-20 fires in Australia are anthropogenic, but they’re not caused by global warming. They’re caused (mostly) by global warming activists moonlighting as arsonists.
New South Wales police say 42% of Australian 2019-20 fires are man-made. Only 9% are natural.
[Hmm, well, what about the fires that weren’t started by global warming arsonists?]
“Not only did the Australian government neglect the management of public land by not doing enough prescribed burns or removing enough timber from the forests, but it has also, though strict laws and harsh penalties, actively prevented its citizens from taking care of their own private property… [I]n large parts of Australia, it remains illegal to remove trees from your land even in order to create fire breaks and protect your property.”
“[I]t’s not climate change that has caused the [2019-20] disaster, but the criminal negligence of [left wing] governments that have tried to buy green votes by locking up vast tracts of land as national parks, yet failed to spend the money needed to control ground fuel and maintain fire trails. Instead, they bowed to an ideology that obstructs necessary hazard reduction and prevents landowners from clearing vegetation around their own properties, all in thrall to the god of ‘biodiversity’… Australia’s foremost bushfire researcher, Dr. Phil Cheney, … has spent 30 years trying to convince authorities that if ground fuel is reduced in a scientific, systematic fashion every year, fire intensity is reduced to a manageable level, no matter what the weather conditions… ‘Climate change has not caused the current fire crisis,’ says Australian Capital Territory forester and former acting fire control officer Ian McArthur. ‘Long unburnt fuels in national parks are the primary cause. Basic fire management states that a fire needs oxygen, a heat source and fuel. The only one of those that can be manipulated is fuel. The more fuel, the more intense the fire, the harder it becomes to suppress the fire.‘”
“[When liberals govern, f]oresters and timber-getters [are] demonized by urban greens, their [servile] bureaucrats and academics, and their state-run media mates. State forests [are] converted to national parks and wilderness areas… Every locked up, un-managed, un-burnt forest inevitably breeds disastrous wildfires. The combination of heavy fuel load, poor access for firefighters, drought, hot winds, arsonists, and dry lightning has only one assured outcome: a bushfire tragedy for the forest and the neighbors… If you want to stop wildfires, put qualified people [environmentalist liberals need not apply] back in charge of forests.”
[FYI, the global warming arsonists released more CO2 by starting wildfires than the entire rest of their country combined during the 2019-20 fire season.]
“Pep Canadell, a lead scientist with Australia’s national research agency, estimates that the [2019-20 anthropogenic (via arson)] fires from Australia have already emitted 400 million tons of carbon dioxide.”
[FYI, a few years ago climate alarmists were blaming severe flooding in Australia on anthropogenic global warming (see the Floods section at the bottom of this page). Now they want you to believe human-caused global warming is causing fires. This, of course, is another example of the fraud of anthropogenic global warming. Climate alarmists want us to believe that all environmental disasters and all human tragedies are caused by CO2.]
