Live in british columbia the land of forest fires. Global warming does not cause forest fires. Build up of underbrush, and other dead fall provides
fuel for forest fires. Heat combined with storms/idiot humans wala forest fires.
Damage to ecosystem contributes to fires by introducing or removing species to a sensitive system. For i stance mild winters 6 years ago, pine beetle
boom. Start of the worst fire seasons in the last 15 years. Reintroduction of wolves in areas less small herbivores to eat low level foilage that
dries up and helps fuel fires. Bad storms, ice and extreme snow fall this winter, killed and pulled treea and or branches down which became fuel for
Im not saying we dont contribute, we absolutely do. How ever what you are witnessing is nature at work. We damage the forest more by being careless
campers, or by overhunting. Not our carbon emissions...
A wet mild winter does not prevent forest fires. A harsh cold winter with lots of snow does not prevent forest fires. Trees, and other woody plants
die and build up over time for a variety of reasons... this is part of the reason you have forest fires. Campers, smokers, broken glass, lightning
strikes and arsonists cause forest fires.
