Global Warming/California Fires Connection
It's no surprise to hear that some politicians are blaming the recent California wildfires on global warming. But I haven't heard anyone consider just how much excess global warming is going to be CAUSED by these fires. How many thoughtful hybrid purchasers and considerate carbon offset dupes had their efforts negated by this single week of tragic infernos?
In 2002, CO2 emissions due to wildfires in Colorado equaled an entire year’s worth of the state’s transportation emissions, according to the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
Once again, I humbly suggest that Earth > man.
