The Waldo Canyon Fire in Pike National Forest near Colorado Springs, Colo., in 2012. Claiming about 350 homes, it was the worst fire in Colorado history. Until this summer, that is, when the Black Forest fire wiped out more than 500 homes and killed at least two people.

If only Colorado could. ;< But then we'd all be flatten like a pancake.

With warmer spring temperatures and earlier snow melt, dry conditions are increasing, which means fire seasons are starting earlier and lasting longer, and bigger fires are becoming more common.

Don't worry. After about 15-20 years of heavy fire seasons, most of the trees will be burned and there won't be any fuel left for the fires.

As for climate change, It is just a myth. I don't think that it really exists.
