    Im not denying arson. Im just saying that its the governments (of every country) go to excuse before they look into what really happened. We have a hot line here to dob in an arsonist during summee months which sort of infers we have multitudes of arsonists running around willy nilly.
    Have a look at the psychology of an arsonist. Theyre not that bright and not as organised as you think. Lol and although they may have the brain of a herd animal they dont gather in groups.

    But what i think has been suggested here is the deliberate starting of fires to financially cripple certain areas. That would be a different kind of crime.

    This was deemed British Columbia's worst year ever for wild fires.
    Our media reports human error for a few (burning barrel got out of control, welding job shot sparks, fire started etc) ...
    The hard cold facts here this year... lightening... lightening started 3/4 of the BC fires.
    Global warming, perhaps. But then again some of these fires were left to burn in the remote areas as they posed no threat to humans and thus increased the area of burned land... the good news... in all these fires, we are killing the nasty Pine Beetle. I think it's a cycle, I think madame mother nature intended it. A kind of natural purge.
    Yep here too. Lightening.
    Plus large fires tends to create its own weather.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.
    When the flowers want to oxygen and nutrition, or you’re a wedding or party planner, I will help you too much.

    It wouldn't surprise me if some of the fires were arson because these fires very often are arson. However saying that doesn't mean I'm denying climate change. Personally I think these fires were bigger, stronger and faster moving because of climate change and we will see more of it, along with greater intensity of hurricanes (and possibly more of them) sea level rise and the disappearance of pack ice.

    People will continue to deny it because they would rather die than admit they were wrong.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."
