Reality Check: Canada Wildfires At Lowest Level For Decades

According to Canada’s National Forestry Database, the number of forest fires has been at the lowest since 1990.

According to the Met Office, global warming is leading to record breaking fires in North America.

In fact wildfires this year are running at just 8% of the 10-year average:

This suggests that meteorological conditions have been responsible for both the glut of fires in the US west and the dearth in Canada.

More significant though is the long term trend in Canada:

1994, 1995 and 1998 recorded the biggest wildfire acreages. But over the full period, there is no obvious trend at all.

Don`t worry there is no significant man- made global warming. The global warming scare is not driven by science but driven by politics. Al Gore and the UN are dead wrong on climate fears. The IPCC process is a perversion of science.
