    Since you’re so easily duped you should take up smoking, cause, you know, smoking doesn’t cause cancer. Big tobacco, like big oil only has our best interests in their greedy shriveled hearts.

    There will always be flat-earthers among us, who think it’s just fine to sh*t in our own nest.

    They will determine what happened to these brave firefighters! A review of Colorado’s StormKing Mountain firefighter’s deaths was fully studied “In storm and cloud and wind and sky, in heart and hand and mind and eye, a bond still binds too strong to tell, All those who fly with those that fell.” StormKing Fire Memorial Plaque

    On a fire in Southern California, we had a 180 degree wind shift as we were going into a fire. In the chaparral, that fire turned and ran, covering over a mile and a half in the time it took us to run about 250 meters up a ridge to cover across a fire break on the crest.

    If you’ve ever had a fire “crown out” over you, you know how things like this can happen, but are among the lucky ones who escaped with your life.

    Having spent years in fighting wildland fires, it’s part of how I’ve observed the on the ground impacts of anthropogenic climate change, and seen that it’s real.

    We need to honor the firefighters who lost their lives, THANK YOU, STEVE, but if the country continues to refuse to acknowledge the science, fact, and danger of what we’re doing to the planet, things will only get worse, and the sacrifice WILL be more lives, not just money and “possessions” they’re out to defend.

    In order to prove causality, one needs a controlled experiment. Maybe lung cancer causes people to smoke, instead of smoking causes lung cancer?

    So we took some mice. We randomly assigned 1/2 to smoke, and 1/2 NOT to smoke, and the 1/2 that had to smoke got lung cancer, while those that didn’t smoke, didn’t.

    Which I take as conclusive proof that smoking does NOT cause cancer, and burning fossil fuels is good for the planet.

    If the residents had agreed to Controlled Burning, this tragedy
    need never have happened.
