Wildfires - Out Of Control
July 21, 2021

Wildfires (by definition) are out of control. The United States has 83 large wildfires in 13 states, currently burning 1,293,636 acres. Montana has 20 large wildfires. Idaho has 18. Oregon has 8, including the country's largest, the Bootleg fire, which has burned over 364,000 acres. California has 7 large wildfires and 5,267 wildfires of all sizes. Washington state has 7. Alaska and Arizona have 6. Wyoming has 5. Nevada has 2. New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and Minnesota each have one large wildfire. Canada's British Columbia province has 741,316 acres of wildfires. Smoke from these western wildfires have filled the air as far away as New Jersey and New York.

In Russia's Yakutia, wildfires are burning approximately 3,700,000 acres of forests and tundra.

The scale of these fires are unprecedented. Day is night, and night is aglow.

To give some idea of the size of 1.2 million acres and 3.7 million acres, Delaware is 1,593,153 acres, and Connecticut is 3,547,731 acres.

Central China and Germany are experiencing unprecedented flooding.

And Japan has only vaccinated 8% of its population.

So... the world should ignore Climate Change and the Covid-19 pandemic and begin the Olympics?!?

pink unicorn in Hagen, Germany (July 2021)

In the flooded town-lake of Hagen, a man rode a pink inflatable unicorn llama, which I would argue has more practical value than a billionaire riding into space on the USS Vanity.
