Canada’s wildfires are a reminder climate warriors have it all wrong

Environmentalism that’s all passion and no reason does no good for anyone — or even for the environment.

One sign of how unhinged greens have gotten is the rush to blame climate change for the Canadian wildfires that blanketed the Northeast with smoke and toxic air last week.

City Comptroller Brad Lander called the fires “a smoke signal that it’s time to stop” financing “fossil fuel” projects, while Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cited the smoke (and a Puerto Rican heatwave) to demand we “adapt our food systems, energy grids, infrastructure, healthcare, etc. ASAP.”

Yet there’s zero evidence climate change sparked any of the more than 400 fires raging across Canada’s forests.

The Canadian wildfires are not from climate change.

Indeed, the main stage-setter (as in California’s 2020 wildfires) looks to be forest mismanagement in the name of environmentalism.

Imagining that “natural” is always better, greens have pushed to stop controlled burns that clear out brush and debris and so make it less likely fires grow uncontrollable.

In a 2020 paper, scientists warned of a shortage of funding for Canadian forest-fire control, and in 2021 the Globe and Mail called for more small, controlled burns to avoid runaway blazes.

But Canada’s leaders bowed to enviro sentiment, ignoring the science.

Ironically, that’s led to fires spewing millions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere.
