    Long but excellent and thorough.

    Data may be Colorado’s best bet to mitigate increasing wildfire risk on the Front Range

    DOUGLAS COUNTY — The future of climate change and suburban firefighting in Colorado is here, in a dull brown meadow at the corner of Chatridge Court and U.S. 85.

    They know the future will arrive on this spot, because the kind of raging grass fires near thousands of suburban homes that keep emergency planners awake at night has already been here three times in five years.

    The Chatridge 3 grass fire on Dec. 14, just before Boulder County’s horrific Marshall fire, swept east up the hill from U.S. 85 toward an isolated mansion and threatened 100,000 people in Highlands Ranch, a few miles away.
    Nope, no climate change signal. N
    one at all.

        Oh right… like we’re gonna believe “data”…. That’s the medium of the “Coastal Elites”…. I’ll stick with prayer and faith, thank you very much….

            When I was living out in Grand County (about a decade ago), I couldn't believe how dry things were. Tons of mountain pine beetle kill, little snowfall (compared to prior years), and the Fraser flats looked as barren as some parts of the Dakotan badlands. Looked like it was prime to become an inferno. No surprise that area has had some issues in the past decade with wildfires.

                Because that’s been working so well against COVID-19. All the proof I need. 😉
