Might not need worry about saving animal species either. Sixty percent of Californiaís animal species reside in the Sierra Nevada. One third are considered to be rare, threatened or endangered. Though a few species thrive in scorched habitat, many of these species lose their natural conditions when poor forest management results in wildfires.

Here is a little insight written last December about what the science has known for years. https://www.hcn.org/issues/49.21/wildfi ... nia-blazes

The article also had this insight:

"Further complicating the picture is climate change — the major factor behind the longer fire seasons and bigger fires. This creates a feedback loop, where megafires exacerbate climate change, which then encourages even bigger wildfires. One study found that from 1984 to 2015, climate change doubled the area burned by wildfires across the West, compared to what would have burned without climate change. As the globe keeps warming, scientists expect forests to continue getting warmer, drier and more flammable. Unless people reduce greenhouse gas emissions, climate change will significantly increase the frequency of wildfires. One study projected that if fossil fuels remain the dominant source of global energy and greenhouse gas emissions keep rising, by 2085 the acreage burned by fire in California will increase one-third to three-fourths."

Thanks for posting.

Well they say we will run out of oil in 50-55 years or so. What will happen then? Maybe they will go back to burning the wood and coal to warm their homes until the oil reserves regenerate. Not sure what they have planned for all the other uses we have the need for oil since it is used for just about every part of human life today.
2018+50=2068 Yes, I agree by 2085 it could return to the levels of fire that were much greater and uncontrolled, before all the interference of modern man on natures cycle.

Another perspective

Consequently, there is now a forest “fire deficit” in the western United States attributable to the combined effects of human activities, ecological, and climate changes. Large fires in the late 20th and 21st century fires have begun to address the fire deficit, but it is continuing to grow.

Climate change today is directly related to all the same events as back then and then some. Volcanoes are erupting, wildfires are burning and man is still mining for ore. The cataclysmic volcanic eruption hasn't happened yet for modern man but it is only a matter of time. The climate alarmists will no doubt blame them on man when it happens. They mention nothing about CO2 levels during the periods of their focus only mention of human pollution during the period. Can you imagine how much ore they were digging with their picks and shovels back during the Roman empire! Wow!
I like how they added tree ring studies into the story. Another theory I like to read about.
The most severe drought in the record began in 1492, and four of the five worst droughts all happened during Christopher Columbus’ lifetime.

No climate change is not a matter of the type of events. It is a matter of the scale, amount and frequency of events and the ability of the earth to adapt quickly enough to stave off catastrophe.

You have already made the case that you do not care if the human race (or any other species) goes through a massive extinction, so your opinion doesn't really matter to those who want a habitable planet.

Climate change is exactly related to types of events as outlined in all the science to date. You nor anyone else can change nature to fit your greedy need to live. Not by geoengineering nor by the scare tactics used today by the climate alarmists to use CO2 levels for profit.

A massive extinction is inevitable according to the history of man, so your opinion doesn't really matter to those who want to live life free from your stupidity.
