So far this season, over 1000 fires -- started by lightning and camp fires -- have burned up to 300,000 hectares of Canadian forests.
Despite what environmentalists are trying to tell the public, these fires have nothing to do with global warming.
What these activists don't mention is that for every hectare that's burned in these fires, about 100 tonnes of carbon dioxide is emitted.
That amount is equal to all the supposedly evil C02 emitted for an entire year by Alberta's oil sands companies.
Of course, C02 isn't poison or pollution anyhow, but environmentalists want us to think it is.
So why do they devote all their attention on the oil sands, which produce a fraction of emissions these fires do?
The answer is obvious: They're against progress and prosperity, so the oil sands make a better "bad guy" than a beautiful, harmless forest.
