California wildfires - arson, not ''climate change'' | Beaufort County Now | California professor arrested for deliberately setting fires around massive Dixie wildfire

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Liberal policies in the western US and in Australia like refusing to clear brush regularly have made wildfires harder to stop and more dangerous, but another key is how they start.  In the spate of wildfires a couple of years ago in Australia, there were scores of arson arrests of those who deliberately set many of the fires.  The media tended to ignore that and harp on "climate change" instead.

Now, a college professor in California has been arrested for deliberately setting a whole raft of fires in the vacinity of the Dixie wildfire, the state's largest in memory.  His activities did not come to light until after the main Dixie fire was burning, so it is not yet clear if he also set the original fire.  He has clearly, however, set new fires to help enlarge it.

This counters the political narrative of the corrupt corporate media, which styles itself the MSM, so it gets little play from them.

Now they are finding that the wildfires raging in southern Italy are also the work of arsonists. I wonder if they will catch Greta Thunburg going around with a gasoline can?
