NATURE’S CRUELLEST JOKE
The claim: global warming caused the California wildfires.
The reality: California wildfires cause global warming:
In one week, Southern California’s wildfires spewed the same amount of carbon dioxide — the primary global warming gas — as the state’s power plants and vehicles did, scientists figure.
Solution: replace those fire-prone polluting forests with clean-burning hybrid trees! C’mon, tree manufacturers; modernise, and stop living in the carbon-generating past.
