Theres an Unprecedented Wildfire in Greenland. Thats Bad News for the Arctic.

This is going to sound weird, but there’s a wildfire right now in west Greenland. You know, that huge island of mostly ice? Part of it is on fire.

There’s been nothing even close to this since reliable satellite-based fire detection records began in Greenland in 2000. Very small wildfires can evade satellite detection, and old-timer scientists who have worked in Greenland for decades say that micro-fires there aren’t necessarily uncommon.

This week’s fire, however, is on another level

But global warming is just a vast conspiracy by left-wingers.

1. Are we going to turn this self destruction around?

Or should we just kiss our ass goodby?

3. With the 'help' we are getting from our government, I think the second option more

likely than the first no matter how much we singly attempt. But I am trying in my own ways.
