The Morning Rant: The US Forest Service Started the New Mexico Fires Which Were Blamed on Climate Change

You’ve probably heard about the recent forest fires in the western US, blamed - of course – on climate change. (By which the climatistas mean that the wildfires were caused by all you selfish SUV drivers, McMansion owners, and other enemies of Gaia.)

Climate change is why New Mexico's wildfire season started early this year [Yahoo News – 5/04/2022]

‘Like an inferno:’ US West burning at furious pace so far [Associated Press – 5/12/2022]

Wind-driven flames have torn through vegetation that is extraordinarily dry from years-long drought exacerbated by climate change.

It’s not climate change. These are man-made fires and the US Forest Service is largely responsible. This isn’t even a case of one uncontrolled fire set by the USFS…it’s multiple uncontrolled fires!

Forest Service says it started all of New Mexico's largest wildfires [Reuters – 5/27/2022]

Two blazes that grew into New Mexico's largest ever wildfire were both started by the U.S. Forest Service the agency said on Friday, prompting the state's governor to demand the federal government take full responsibility for the disaster.
Forest Service investigators determined the Calf Canyon Fire was caused by a "burn pile" of branches that the agency thought was out but reignited on April 19, the Santa Fe National Forest said in a statement.

The Calf Canyon fire wasn’t even a controlled burn that got out of control, it was simply a burn pile.

On the other hand, the Hermit’s Peak Fire was a “controlled” burn, except that the Forest Service lost control of it. Both of the wildfires started by the USFS then merged into one hellfire.

That blaze [Calf Canyon] on April 22 merged with the Hermits Peak Fire, which the USFS started with a controlled burn that went out of control on April 6, the agency previously reported.
Blazing a more than 40-mile-long (64-km-long) path up the Sangre de Cristo mountains, the fire has destroyed watersheds and forests used for centuries by Indo-Hispano farming villages and Native American communities.

Burning down centuries-old villages of Indo-Hispanos sounds kind of racist to me. Was diversity training not provided to the Forest Service?

By the way, the US Forest Service isn’t the only “good guy” going into the woods and starting deadly wildfires.

Do you remember the awful Dixie Wildfire in California in 2021? It burned almost a million acres, incinerated over 700 homes, and destroyed the town of Greenville.

A college professor who had taught at Santa Clara University and Sonoma State University set at least four fires that were part of the greater overall conflagration.

College Professor Gary Stephen Maynard Charged With Intentionally Starting California Wildfires [CBS Sacramento – 11/18/2021]

The fires happened in the area of the Dixie Fire in Shasta Trinity National Forest and Lassen National Forest while the Dixie Fire was burning. Some of the fires were behind firefighters battling the Dixie Fire, the indictment alleges.

According to this NPR story, Professor Maynard’s teaching and research includes ”environmental sociology,” whatever that is. Perhaps starting wildfires as a way of bringing attention to “climate change” is a form of environmental sociology. Outside of faculty lounges, however, murder via arson is not generally embraced as an acceptable form of sociology.

I am starting to suspect that wildfires out west are like vandalism “hate crimes” on campus, and that until proven otherwise, I should assume any such occurrence is a false-flag event ignited by left-wing activists. Or by incompetent government agencies.
