Destructive California wildfires magnified by population and shifting

Russ Fulcher, just elected to the US House from Idaho, knows more about
Earth's climate than the National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Science
Society, on global warming?  Read his comments from a Spokesman Review
article lower down, below quote from NAS publication.

"Don't be misled--"  Fulcher stated.  OK.  I won't!  The National Academy
of Sciences is credible on climate change science.  You are not!

Climate Change
Evidence and Causes


certain than ever, based on many lines of evidence, that humans are
changing Earth’s

climate. The atmosphere and oceans have warmed, accompanied by sea-level
rise, a

strong decline in Arctic sea ice, and other climate-related changes.

The evidence is clear."

Excerpt from Spokesman Review article referenced above:

Asked about climate change, Fulcher said he believes “in the cycle that’s
happened since the beginning of time,” and said wildfires in Idaho and
other states are a significant contributor of carbon emissions.

“Don’t be misled – if you take a look at this over the past thousand years,
you’ll see a cycle up, a cycle down,” he said.

He said Idaho families have been disenfranchised by regulations that
limited logging and mining, and that has led to forest overgrowth and
catastrophic wildfires.

“God gave us a resource,” he said. “We have a wealth of prosperity and it’s
under our feet, yet we have a very low income and that’s because we
transitioned to a service-based economy.”

McNeil said voters need to know that President Donald Trump’s
administration is preparing to reverse dozens of environmental rules and
regulations that she said protect the food people eat and the air they

“Leave Jesus alone – he has nothing to do with this,” she chastised
Fulcher. She said while in the state Legislature, Fulcher and his
colleagues worked to give control over resources like property owners’
mineral rights to special interests.
