    One ‘cost’ too great.
    Thank you for the memorial.

    We are a long way from controlling weather, other than increasing the greenhouse effect.
    It would be great if we knew how to have a few hundred million gallons of rain fall there rather than here.
    The good news for central Florida is that illegal fireworks likely won’t set any of this mud-slogged place on fire.

    ^Palmetto burns quite nicely, even if the ground is wet. But of course the real issue is that I’ve watched the climate, not just “weather” change in my area over the last 35 years. It’s also observable in the change in wildlife and plant communities, and water picture.


    Having fought wildfires for decades, the picture for the future of my friends, and relatives, still in the business, is not good.

    Ouch! Mr. Danziger, I can’t agree with you on this. It may be, or not be, and my guess is it may be, but that’s just a guess, you understand? And you don’t have any more guessing power then I do, right?

    Until the reports are in from the commissions, coroners, doctors, radio-monitors, material specialists, meteorologists and other people it might just be that one sqad-leader made a wrong call. Tragic, but not political!

    -

    Yes, wildfires are more frequent, it seems, and bigger. But to use this tragedy for political points is not what i expected of you, being such a long-time pro in comics. I’m a bit disappointed, i have to say!

    I’m thankful President Obama recognizes the problem, and is addressing the issue. Morty, your children will be disappointed, and very adversely affected by inaction on AGW. I’m disappointed you feel the truth is a political ploy.

    I dunno, MFT … how long can we afford to let the arguments and the ‘studies’ go on, before we concede that something’s going on?

    What is really going on is that TPTP are keeping us at each other’s throats, arguing over whether or not the climate is changing, or the weather, or who or what caused it – because as long as the argument goes on, nothing is being done to clean up the environment.

    The real issue is the environment. We have survived climate change before, we will again. What we can’t survive for very long is the toxic burden we are carrying, fruits of letting Big Bidniz ‘regulate’ themselves.

    We’ve had thirty years of business regulating themselves, and it looks to me that we’d better go back to regulation, because as long as we continue on this path, it will be all moot.

    Have you noticed the escalating cancer rates? Cancer isn’t so much a disease as a response to poisoning. Everything that passes our lips (unless we can afford to eat an exclusively organic/free range diet) is feeding the cancer.

    Let’s give GW the break it so richly deserves, and get the water and food cleaned up. Our kids and theirs will be glad we did.

    I hope they families of the firefighters may have strength and peace with things and are knowing how proud we are of them doing heroic work.

    Same argument used against laws for responsible gun ownership. Why not have a discussion in the wake of a tragedy?
    And in a parallel universe, Republicans in Pennsylvania passed Voter ID laws in response to zero instances of voter fraud.
    Hypocrite much?

    You are completely off base here. This is the price that is paid when you send youyoung men and women into a dangerous situation to help save property. Houses can be re-built, that’s what insurance is for. Global warming real or not has nothing to do with this tragic loss of life.

    Shame on you Danziger for using the death of these honorable men to spew your “global warming spiel”

    What memorial? He is using their deaths to advance his beliefs.

    That warming is coming from a fire, not from global warming. You need to go back to school and get a real education.

    How could the great and wonder Wizard of O(bama)z let this happen… maybe he could raise the sea level a bit…

    I understand residents in this area previously refused Controlled Burning which would have prevented this disastrous conflagration.
