    Re: California Wildfires

    If you're suggesting people are setting the fires deliberately, I'd not be at all surprised. I think that's increased the scale of most of these annual fires over the last few years when the wind's sufficiently strong to build them.

    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.

    I'm also suggesting that this has the potential to be a definite conversation changer and headline grabber. Country and western music listeners are a lot more important to certain entities than children are.

    Report on the BBC emphasises that the speed the fire is moving at has surprised people. Nothing yet about the possibility of arson, though it wouldn't surprise me either.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    Not any particular person. Probably not a wine connoisseur, no matter how bad of a bottle they got.

    Re: California Wildfires

    While researching California wildfires, I came across this particular wildfire, one that I've never heard of before and was the most virulent in American history:

    Re: California Wildfires

    May i suggest you guys do a search for fires around the world in the past 20 years pertaining to their intensity and frequency.
    Denying climate change and ignoring its affects is playing havoc on entire populations. Sick and tired of people blaming arsonists when they dont understand what is actually happening around them.
    Expect a new word in your vocabulary that will change the way you look at catastrophic conditions..... there will no longer be called wildfire/bushfires...."fire storms" will be the vogue.

    Re: California Wildfires

    The conditions were right. It is peak wildfire season in the area. The "Diablo Winds" were blowing strong, with very low humidity air from the Great Basin. Any little thing could have started the tinder dry grass and scrub brush. Today it was revealed that the power company was responding to multiple calls of arcing and sparking wires on the poles about 2 hours before the first fire was reported.
