We have to read the New York Times so that you don’t have to.
So we were thunderstruck (no pun intended) that the newspaper of record repeated the myth that climate change may be responsible for the fires – a myth we thoroughly refuted last week even as we predicted the lie would pick up steam in the coming days.
In their Q and A article explaining the forest fires, here is the Times grade school logic:
“What role has climate change played in the fires?”
“Climate research suggests that heat and drought associated with global warming are major reasons for the increase in bigger fires… Wildfire experts see the signs of climate change n the dryness, direct heat and the longer fire seasons.”
No word yet from the editors at the Gray Lady why 2022 was a record LOW level of Canadian forest fires.
