Rumor vs Reality

Rumor: Right-wing or left-wing activists are setting the fires. Reality: Drought, not arsonists.

Published September 21, 2020

Radicals did not set the forest fires. The cause is climate change and drought, not Antifa, BLM, Proud Boys or Boogaloo activists. The fires raging in the western US are bigger than in the past because climate change dried out the region. Things were made worse because of a long-standing  US Forest Service’s policy of suppressing all fires. That left our forests full of fuel. All it took then was lightning or accidents. There haven’t been any credible reports of arson.
