Are you talking about the seasonal forest fires around the med?

Are you talking about global warming? Or rather, climate change? Because global warming requires a few more centuries of data to be established...

In a few more centuries it will be far too late.

As a geologist, I have a different perspective. Not saying we should be idle and not act, but all this doom and gloom is a tad exaggerated. When "global warming" is difficult to scientifically prove (as I said, it requires a lot more data in time), the agenda changed to "climate change". Well, climate has been changing on Earth for the last 4.5 billion years...

The issue is much more complex than normally discussed and presented.

At the same time being a geologist doesn't make you a Climatologist. Being a Petroleum Geologist reduces your credibility even more because the Petroleum industry has been spreading misinformation about Climate change for decades.

How do you know that it is misinformation?

I told you. I've been studying climate change for 30 years so I know. It's the truth even if you don't believe me.

curious farmers want to know.

Do they? I didn't know denialists wanted to know such things. Interesting!

How soon can we expect raging forest fires in parts of the Midwest? I'll stick my finger approximately in the middle of a map of the continental United States and let's say, the Kansas City metropolitan area (heavily wooded in many parts, still?), and within 75 square miles or so of that area.

I hear there's lots of sand there...for head to be buried in, too?

Oh my, another expert!

Hint: Google AIN'T yer friend

Give us what you got!
