Of course, I suspect that even "uninformed" people can figure this out. What we are looking at today is climate change of a serious and increasing degree. Not a week goes by that I do not read "warmest ever" reports coming in from the 4 corners of the globe. Sea creatures migrating north in search of cooler water. Polar ice melting at record speeds. Rising ocean levels, etc. I doubt that these reports are all a part of an organized world wide conspiracy of deceitful propaganda fanatics.

While the practice of large-scale hazard-reduction burning certainly has its place in the suite of land management approaches, it is also one of the most complex landscape operations to plan and carry out. The key constraint is that conditions must be just right — not too wet, or the fuel won’t burn, but not so dry that land managers lose control. (It gets awkward if the burn lit to protect houses and critical assets burns them down.)
This is the double-edged sword of global warming: A hotter, drier landscape is too dry to burn safely, even during cooler winter months. Tinder-dry fuel is them primed for monster fires that sweep across entire landscapes, even in areas where hazard reduction has been carried out.
"Environmentalist fools" may, in fact, be deceitful propaganda.

Global warming also has many ironies. New "hot" geographic areas can disrupt long established weather streams/patterns and cause movement of cold air to places not accustomed to cooler temps.
And as I mentioned earlier: Russia has published a plan to adapt its economy and population to climate change, aiming to mitigate damage but also “use the advantages” of warmer temperatures.
The document, published on the government’s website on Saturday, outlines a plan of action and acknowledges changes to the climate are having a “prominent and increasing effect” on socioeconomic development, people’s lives, health and industry.
Russia is feeling global warming more than any other nation due to their makeup of massive polar regions. Is the Russian government comprised of "environmentalist fools"?
