National Fire Agency Hides Data to Promote Climate Alarmism (Guest: Richard Sauer)

May 25, 2021

The National Interagency Fire Center hid wildfire data before 1983 to try and show climate change is causing more wildfires.

In this episode of the Heartland Daily Podcast, Senior Fellow for Environment and Climate Anthony Watts explores the possible reasons that the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) "disappeared” historical fire data prior to 1983. Fortunately, the internet never forgets, and the data is still available online. By hiding the data, the NIFC proved that government agencies have an overt agenda to try and show climate change is much worse than it truly is.

Anthony Watts and Richard Sauer, former fire captain in Ventura County, California, also discuss "big money" firefighting and climate change related to fires.
