Wild fires in Portugal are driven by the ill management of forests. Piled
fuel in forests catch fire as soon as someone throws a cigarette butt
into them.

In France, four nuclear plants have been shut not because of wildfires in
Portugal, but because demand is minimal in August. Those 4 reactors,
among 58, were selected because local authorities put unrealistic
thresholds on cooling waters.
The activist mayor of Paris banned very old diesel cars without
appropriate filters from her town, because easterlies bring fumes and
particulates from coal powered Germany and Netherlands. With hot
anticyclonic summer conditions on northern Europe, wind turbines produce
almost no power.

Portugal unlike Spain, is an Atlantic country, open to Atlantic
perturbations. Southern Spain uses too much water for agriculture.
Andalusia even considered collecting water from the Ebro which flows
several hundred kilometres northward.

Yes, recent EU directives (laws) require that branches and bushes should
no more be removed from forests. Combustible is piling awaiting for an
inevitable spark. Fortunately previous summers were mostly cool and wet
in most Europe, but this year is different. It renewed with hot dry
summers.

Temperatures are such that fishes by no mean could start to die. Those

I don't think some nutjob on the internet is qualified to tell us
when aquatic life is stressed by water temperature.

four French nuclear reactors in three power plants near the Rhine and the
Rhone Rivers, including Fessenheim, have had to be temporarily shut down. EDF
said the decision was made to avoid overheating the rivers.

Nuclear power plants use water from the rivers to cool down the temperatures
of their reactors before sending the water back into the rivers. Rivers that
are unusually warm can experience mass fish die-offs, which has happened in
Germany in the past week.

Stupid question from stupid person.. Portugal like most countries..has been having forest fires all along.. Pehaps more these days due to a combination of stupid government management and more arsonists..

They should use small controlled fires during the spring in order to
avoid disastrous wildfires in summer. I recently noticed that dead wood
was no more removed from forests. I was answered that it was a new EU

Ever notice as to how people live in 'leafy suburbs' and get all bitter and
twisted when their house gets destroyed in a fire.
And how there are no fire breaks and as you say all that dead vegetation

When fire is moving through steep hill sides it tends to make its own wind, thousands of years ago animals adapted for climbing those steep hillsides were not limited by private property lines, fences, highways etc and could clear out acres and acres lower growth.

Just think. Instead of struggling for 1000 years to cure disease
and extend human life expectancy to record levels
if doctors had just been trained by Cartoony they would have learned
it would have been better to break limbs, randomly cut into
and injure major organs, and spread disease instead.

http://www.realclimate.org/docs/Rebuttal_Miskolczi_20100927.pdf

The alternative greenhouse theory of Miskolczi (2007,2010) results in
a constant infrared optical depth with time, meaning that there can be
no increasing greenhouse effect with time. Miskolczi suggests that
observations show this ratio to be fixed. However, both observations
and calculations with physically sound radiative transfer models show
that Miskolczi's theory does not stand up to scrutiny. Moreover, there
is ample observational evidence that the most important greenhouse
gases, water vapour and carbon dioxide have increased in the last four
decades, meaning that the total infrared optical depth is indeed
increasing. Finally, direct satellite observations of the outgoing
infrared spectrum show that the greenhouse effect has been enhanced
over this period. Even the calculations of Miskolczi show a change of
optical depth with time. Therefore, neither observations nor radiative
transfer theory can support Miskolczi's conclusions.

Why Forests Need Fires, Insects and Diseases

How do natural disturbances affect Canada’s forests?
Natural disturbances such as forest fires, insect and disease outbreaks, drought, wind throw and floods have occurred in Canada’s forests for thousands of years. Disturbance is part of the natural life cycle of the forest and most often helps the forest to renew itself.

Disturbances are particularly important to the cycle of regeneration and regrowth in boreal forests. Fires, as well as insect and disease outbreaks, often occur on a large scale there, more so than in Canada’s temperate forests. Here are some of the ways that these natural disturbances work to renew boreal forests.

Forest fires often stimulate new growth

Fire, the primary change agent in the boreal zone, is as crucial to forest renewal as the sun and rain. Forest fires release valuable nutrients stored in the litter on the forest floor. They open the forest canopy to sunlight, which stimulates new growth. They allow some tree species, like lodgepole and jack pine, to reproduce, opening their cones and freeing their seeds.

Insects reduce aging trees and make the forest more productive

Insects are important in the life cycle of boreal forests. Large insect outbreaks that occur regularly help to renew the forests. Insects release nutrients stored within trees. Infestations also eliminate sick and aging trees, reducing competition among trees and making the ecosystem more productive.

Diseases eliminate weak trees and give new species a chance to thrive

Diseases contribute to the forest ecosystem by speeding up the mortality of weak and over-mature trees, clearing the way for forest renewal and increasing biodiversity. Diseases also break down dead plant material, a process that recycles nutrients and organic matter. Root diseases are among the most common in boreal forests.

Canada closely monitors and reports on natural disturbances

Although natural disturbances generally benefit the long-term health of Canadian forests, they can sometimes have public safety and environmental consequences. Canada closely monitors disturbances in its forests and reports publicly on their effects. The annual State of the Forest report includes the latest information on key disturbances such as fire, insects and disease. The government also makes a number of tools available to the public, such as maps to monitor forest fire conditions in Canada and databases of insects and diseases in Canada’s forests.

Natural Resources Canada–Canadian Forest Service scientists conduct extensive research and analysis on natural disturbance in Canada’s forests. Their reports are used to inform forest management planning, forest laws and forestry practices. For example, scientific research has helped evolve modern harvesting techniques to more closely mimic the effects of natural disturbance on the forest.

Although forest fires, insects and diseases do temporarily reduce the forest area, it’s important to remember that the trees will almost always grow back. Natural disturbance should not be confused with deforestation. A forest that will grow back is still a forest.

Learn the difference between natural disturbances and deforestation
Natural disturbances like wildfire or disease are often mistakenly thought to cause deforestation. Find out why this is untrue when you read these 7 reasons why disturbances don't cause deforestation.

7 facts on disturbances and deforestation

Natural disturbances like wildfire, insects or disease are often mistaken for causes of deforestation. In fact in Canada, forests – particularly in the boreal zone – rely on disturbances to renew and revitalize themselves. Although natural disturbances do create a temporary loss in the forest cover, in the long term they help forests stay healthy and encourage diversity in the tree, plant and animal species that inhabit them. Here are 7 reasons why natural disturbances don’t cause deforestation.

1. Natural disturbances are a normal part Canada’s forests
Natural forces such as wildfires, insects, disease, drought and floods have been at work in Canada’s forests for thousands of years. A forest is a living community of organisms that is constantly changing, and natural disturbances are the biggest drivers of change. They shape the structure, age, types and diversity of the trees and other plants and animals that inhabit our forests. These natural cycles of renewal help keep forests healthy.

Natural disturbances account for considerably more lost trees in Canadian forests each year than human activities like logging or urban development. For example, in 2014 fires affected 4.6 million hectares of forest land while only 700,000 hectares were harvested.

2. Natural disturbances do not cause deforestation
Deforestation means that a forest landscape is cleared and permanently converted to another use. For example, forest land may be turned into farm land, or trees may be cut to build roads or other infrastructure to support industrial, urban or resource development. This represents a permanent loss of forest cover.

Natural disturbances cause a temporary loss of forest cover and do not contribute to deforestation, because the trees will regenerate. Forest land that temporarily has no trees is still considered a forest, since the trees will grow back in time.

3. Deforestation is not increasing in Canada
Canada carefully monitors and regularly reports on the important issue of deforestation. For the past 20 years, deforestation in Canada has been declining, and is currently at a rate of only 0.02%. Learn more about Canada’s low rate of deforestation.

Natural disturbances such as fire, disease and drought occur in cycles that may be shorter in some forest regions and longer in others. This means that disturbances may increase in some years and decrease in others. This is part of the natural life cycle of the forest. Because the loss of forest cover to natural forces is temporary, this does not affect the deforestation rate.

4. Natural forces cause more temporary forest cover loss than harvesting
Although natural disturbances and timber harvesting both create some temporary loss of forest cover, natural forces disturb far more area in Canada’s forests than is affected by harvesting. On average, over the last 25 years, about 21 times more forest area was disturbed by fires and insect outbreaks than by harvesting.

It is important to remember that these are only temporary losses in forest cover. Nearly all the forest area disturbed by natural forces and harvesting will grow back. In fact provincial laws or policies require that areas harvested on public land must be regenerated, either naturally or through planting and seeding. About 94% of Canada’s forests are on public land. Learn more about sustainable forest management.

5. Boreal forests benefit the most from natural disturbances
Natural disturbances occur in all kinds of forests, but occur more often in boreal forests than in Canada’s temperate forests. In fact, boreal forests rely on disturbances to help them rejuvenate.

Wildfires in particular help boreal forests to revitalize, to shape the forest landscape and to support biodiversity over the long term. Fire stimulates new growth and some fire-adapted tree species, such as jack pine, rely on forest fires to reproduce. Read more about fires in the boreal forest.

Large insect outbreaks and diseases are also part of the natural cycle and renew forests by releasing nutrients stored in the trees and in dead plant material. And while some types of trees die, other species are allowed to grow, which helps create diversity in the forest.

6. Sustainable forest management includes managing disturbances
Although forest fires are a natural part of the forest ecosystem and important for maintaining its health and diversity, they can also threaten communities and destroy valuable timber resources. This makes fire control a vital component of forest management in Canada. Forest agencies work to limit potential damage and costs of forest fires. In fact, governments and industry spend about half a billion dollars each year protecting forests from fire. Read more about the ways Canada manages wildfires.

7. Canada monitors the environmental impact of natural disturbances
Natural disturbances can have a major effect on the environment, including the carbon balance. Canada monitors disturbances very closely to inform management planning and as part of our climate change reporting requirements. We also report publicly on fire and insects as two key criteria in our annual State of the Forest report. By monitoring disturbances like fire and pests, forest managers can better understand their effects and take steps to mitigate the changes natural disturbances create in the environment.

Pretty laughable when deniers are backed up to deny
there are no seasons.
If they admit summer exists it tends to undermine any
of their dumb claims that temperature doesnt affected
the speed of chemical reactions.

Oh, right. They deny chemistry exists, too.

Fires are generally beneficial for most forests. Some cones will not
open without the help of a fire. There are exceptions such as old
growth forest on the west coast which are very resistant to fires.
Huge intense fires as are happening in California will lead to erosion
loss of wildlife and are not a good thing. Loss of life and property
and health from smoke is not a good thing. That these types of fires
happening around the globe are not a good thing. Global warming is
not a good thing.

0.8°C doesn't make the difference in the temperatures of fire, but the

Fires are generally beneficial for most forests. Some cones will not
open without the help of a fire. There are exceptions such as old growth
forest on the west coast which are very resistant to fires. Huge intense
fires as are happening in California will lead to erosion loss of
wildlife and are not a good thing. Loss of life and property and health
from smoke is not a good thing. That these types of fires
happening around the globe are not a good thing. Global warming is
not a good thing.
0.8°C doesn't make the difference in the temperatures of fire, but
but it makes a great difference in the number of severe droughts.

Use the dead wood to make bio char for a soil amendment -- a great jobs program when Great Depression II hits next year.

Forests NEED fires, insects and diseases.....
cartooni is just a sad little pile of hate and profanity.
Prove me wrong when I said "forests NEED fires, insects and diseases... "
What for? You made the claim, dumbass, you have to prove it.
Okay .....it you wish "Unum" ......Here you go.....enjoy :)

So where's the proof?

And of course those clever people who planted Assie Eucolypts because they
'looked good'
And forest fires have been happening since forever

You're not interested in anything that fails to support your socialist/Marxist Leninist politico-economic agenda.

I could give you proof that two plus two is four.... and if it went against your politico-economic agenda you would dismiss it out of hand.

Standard science shows that countries with higher levels of innoculation
and (therefore) lower levels of disease have higher life expectancies.
I'm sure Cartoony can google up a blog which has graphs that shows
people *needs* disease and standard science is controlled by

By the way, methane isn't smelly. It is the reason why Davy's lamps were
used in the 19th century mines to detect it. It is not toxic, but
explosive at concentrations of 4,4?17 % (44,000-170,000ppm). Its
concentration in the air is 1,745ppm.

I'm just trying to be exact.

It's certainly true that forests in general have adapted to
some parasites and some weather events but that's a long way from
"needing" parasites and those weather events.

By definition, a parasite benefits itself, not the host.

There are of course symbiotic or commensal relationships between plants and
insects where both benefit or at least neither are harmed.

Even then, "need" arguably sounds like anthropomorphizing and "just so"
explication.

It does noone any good to confuse (certain POME hillbillies would say
"conflate" :) the various relationships.
But funny when Cartoony with his loud history of rejecting greenie-ism,
Gaia, etc tries to defend the same ideas.

Years ago, when animals roamed freely without barriers such as property lines and highways the fuel for fire was consumed (fuel for muscle).

Not to the pollution, highways and road ways had a much much higher pollution reading than urban background locations. Paris limiting vehicles is a smart move, for its been observed the roadways in paris created a huge amount of pollution. No need to blame those across the border, just people taking responsibility for their own mess.

Nutjobs on the internet say it is good for forests to burn down.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/08/us/california-fires/index.html

It may take until September to contain the largest fire in California history,
which is bigger than the size of the city of Los Angeles.

"It is climate change that is causing this," said Michael Mohler, spokesman
for Cal Fire. "There is no other way to explain explosive fuel conditions that
come with increased winds and higher temperatures."

Wild fires in Portugal are driven by the ill management of forests.
Piled fuel in forests catch fire as soon as someone throws a
cigarette butt into them.
Did forest management suddenly change?
Stupid question from stupid person.. Portugal like most
countries..has been having forest fires all along.. Pehaps more
these days due to a combination of stupid government management and
more arsonists..
But the fact is.. many forests need a good fast forest fire once in a
while... It's good for them..
If there is not too much accumulated dead wood and branches, the
temperature of wild fires is not too high and the forest recovers rapidly.
If wood is left to pile for years, subsequent inevitable wildfires burn
very hot and the forest never recovers.

The activist mayor of Paris banned very old diesel cars without
appropriate filters from her town, because easterlies bring fumes and
particulates from coal powered Germany and Netherlands.
Diesel is *Way* more popular in Europe than the
United States, because you can get more gallons
of diesel fuel out of a barrel of oil than
gasoline, plus it has more energy so you can go
further. The down side is that European cities
are filthy. I mean, ever been to London? There's
a century of grit everywhere from the coal use, and
the air is choked with diesel fumes!

...and, as it turns out, every last German
car manufacturer has been lying & cheating on
diesel emissions. Turns out that emissions were
actually INCREASING in recent years... as they all
shook fingers at the United States.

....one story said that they were producing
something like 40 times the claimed "smog" emissions!

Everything has a cost. Everything.

Burning coal has a cost. NOT burning coal has a
cost! Burning diesel fuel comes at a cost. NOT
burning it comes at a cost...

Look. The cost of not burning diesel fuel is
producing LESS motor fuel, consuming MORE oil,
being MORE dependent on imports. The cost of
burning diesel is more pollution.

In France, four nuclear plants have been shut not because of wildfires in
Portugal, but because demand is minimal in August. Those 4 reactors,
among 58, were selected because local authorities put unrealistic
thresholds on cooling waters.

appropriate filters from her town, because easterlies bring fumes and
particulates from coal powered Germany and Netherlands. With hot
anticyclonic summer conditions on northern Europe, wind turbines produce
almost no power.
Wow, reading your reply one might incorrectly think a big urban location like paris could not generate its own pollution

Wild fires in Portugal are driven by the ill management of forests.
Piled fuel in forests catch fire as soon as someone throws a cigarette
butt into them.
In France, four nuclear plants have been shut not because of wildfires
in Portugal, but because demand is minimal in August. Those 4 reactors,
among 58, were selected because local authorities put unrealistic
thresholds on cooling waters.

Air pollution in Paris is now only half what it was ten years ago.
Pollution episodes happen mostly when with (unusual) easterly winds which
bring particulates from Germany.

Again, one might incorrectly think a big urban location could not make its own pollution by reading your reply.

You mean to say the stuff from another place can be transported which on top of the daily pollution produced from an urban location like paris makes things much worse.

Kind of an argument for international treaties or stiffer regulations on people taking care of their stuff before it gets carried by the winds and makes things worse for somebody else.

The pollution of the air above Paris region halved, that a fact measure
by the airparif measurement network.

It is a known fact. Threshold are generally exceeded when pollution from
Germany is brought by winds. Fortunately, generally winds blow from the
Altantic. When winds blow from the east they bring air polluted with fine
particles from industrial places in Belgium and Germany.

So would that include the most drastic changes near roadsides, if so why would you need to focus attention on the outside winds rather than near roadsides inside the city itself?

Its also a known fact that roadside sites had greater values than the urban background mean. Generally your bs is an omission, this one is roadside locations.

When cars travel on roads, the combustion of fossil fuels is not complete along with being dirty. Fortunately air pollution standards include auto emissions and dont depend on your omissions.

Back to the stone age with them. They can always go begging, hat-in-hand to Germany.
