Why So Many Wildfires? Half The Country Is Turning Into An Intensely Hot, Bone Dry Burn Zone

WildfireDid you know that 8 of the 9 worst years for wildfires ever recorded have all been since the year 2000?  The western half of the United States just keeps getting hotter and drier, and this is creating ideal conditions for wildfires.  The furious wildfire that took the lives of 19 brave firefighters in Yarnell, Arizona on Sunday is just one example of this.  That wildfire has already consumed more than 200 buildings in the town of Yarnell, and it now spans nearly 9,000 acres even though more than 400 firefighters are battling it.  High winds, record setting heat and bone dry conditions have created a “perfect storm” that firefighters are having a very difficult time contending with.  Unfortunately, scientists tell us that things may continue to get even worse for the western half of the country.  Most of the territory between the Mississippi River and the west coast seems to be steadily getting drier, and that means it is rapidly being transformed into an intensely hot, bone dry burn zone.


What we just witnessed in Arizona was not an isolated incident.  Last week, the nation was captivated by the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history.  And according to NBC News, officials are saying that this could be the worst season for wildfires in the state of California in 100 years…

Southern California fire officials warned Monday that the state should take caution during a brutal fire season that projections suggest could be the worst to hit the region in a century.

“We’re going to have a very volatile fire season,” Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby said at a Monday afternoon news conference, who noted it could be the worst in 100 years.

So what is causing all of this?

Well, drought is one of the primary reasons why we are seeing so many fires.  In a previous article, I explained that scientists believe that the 20th century was the wettest century in the western half of the United States in 1000 years.  During that time, we built cities in a lot of places that historically have been very hot and very dry.

And now things appear to be reverting to more normal historical patterns.  And that means very dry conditions.  The past year has been the driest ever recorded for both California and New Mexico, and this past winter was extremely dry for the entire western half of the country.

Sadly, the drought never seems to end.  According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, intensely dry conditions stretch from east Texas all the way to the California coastline right now.

And of course the crazy heat wave that western states are experiencing at the moment is certainly not helping things.  The high temperature in Phoenix was 115 on Sunday, and the mercury hit 129 in Death Valley.

Meanwhile, the western half of the country continues to dry up at a staggering rate.  Will we soon see severe water restrictions imposed in cities and towns all over the Southwest?

If you think this is just hype, check out what is already happening in one town in Utah

Look around the city of Lehi and you see beautiful green lawns. You would never know they were in the middle of a water emergency. Some residents don’t even know. That’s why the city is passing out fliers to every resident, letting them know if they don’t change their ways some neighborhoods could be out of drinking water as early as tomorrow.

Anna Morales got one on her door yesterday and couldn’t believe how serious the situation had become.

“I was shocked because I hadn’t heard anything prior to that,” Morales said.

Sadly, even most of the people that live in these areas don’t really know what is going on.  They just assume that everything will be fine and that plenty of fresh water will always be there.

But as I wrote about recently, the truth is that we are rapidly seeing conditions emerge which are reminiscent of the 1930s.  In fact, some western states are already experiencing absolutely massive dust storms that can last for up to 15 hours.  And in Nevada recently, an “apocalyptic” dust storm caused a 27 vehicle pileup

Twenty-seven vehicles slammed into each other during a sandstorm in rural Northern Nevada, killing one person, seriously injuring several others and sapping already-thin emergency resources Monday evening, officials said.

Humboldt County sheriff’s dispatchers called in virtually every medical, law enforcement and fire worker in the sparsely populated area after drivers reported “near-apocalyptic” conditions on Interstate 80 three miles west of Winnemucca, according to officials at the Humboldt General Hospital.

For much more on all of this, please see my recent article entitled “Dust Bowl Conditions Are Literally Returning To The Western Half Of The United States“.

In this day and age, we like to think that our technological advancements have conquered nature, but that is most definitely not the case.

Our most important sources of fresh water in the western half of the nation are rapidly running dry, and the “breadbasket of America” is starting to turn back into the Dust Bowl.

What are we going to do when the water is gone?

What is going to happen to food prices if crops start failing out west year after year?

And what is the western half of the country going to eventually look like if wildfires continue to get even worse?

Scientists tell us that what we experienced last century was not normal.  For some reason, the western half of the country was unusually blessed with rain.  But now that has changed.  Things are going back to how they were before.

Are we going to be able to handle that?

    I live in Lehi, but the water restrictions are happening in all the neighboring cities as well. Most of the towns get their water from the rivers coming out of the canyons or from aquifers, which are drying up fast. It makes you think whether this will get better in a couple of wetter than normal years or if this is a sign of worse things to come.
    I hope we can all stay safe and be smart with the 4th coming up.

      I live in Provo & nobody has informed us on water restrictions. I guess it hasn’t hit us yet but I’ve always conserved water anyway. Yes, stay safe on Independence Day. Utah has had about 5 days in a row now with 100+ temps.

  • Its all part of Agenda 21

    Google it…

    The elites plans to bring everyone into controlled cities. It would be impossible for anyone to live outside the designated control points in America. Its all part of bigger plan to squeeze Americans further.

    Carbon Dioxide is the villain. If you want to know how it works take a sheet of foil used in cooking and see how it equalizes heat throughout the surface. CO2 does the same thing. Increased CO2 in the atmosphere is averaging the heat from the Sun both at the poles and the equator and everywhere else.
    We have to find a way to transport water from the oceans to the areas we need the water. The natural evaporation into clouds is the best method as it takes a lot less energy to do it. I would suggest solar heat furnaces. But this is going to take engineering on a scale no one has done before.
    At least in modern times it hasn’t been done. There are legends of the past that such a thing might have been done before.

    The problem is side effects we are not aware of. These side effects could cause massive volcanic and earthquake activity. This is pure guesswork on my part. So whatever we do it has to be done very carefully.
    The Earth itself has many deep wells of water. One of those wells goes from the Canadian Tundra all the way to the Florida Gulf Coast. Our water comes from a river 400 feet below our feet. It is some of the hardest mineral content in the country.

    Finding those wells in the West might temporarily help the situation.

    Everything I have stated requires someone with initiative and imagination. Creative thoughts from a different kind of engineer. Engineers like Kettering and Patterson in our own history here in Ohio.
    That is why you have starters on cars. All the science in the world said it was physically impossible. Creative people found a way.
    Personally, I feel the problem is a lot deeper than that. I think we have to get back to our churches and back to worshipping as we should have been all along.
    I think we have to get the non-believers out of D.C. before we suffer the same fate as Israel in the past.
    I think we have to get the abominations out of government and rethink doing things the honest way, with truth and no lies.
    But I believe Jesus Christ will return at the time given by his Father. Those that do not reform will suffer. Those that are corrupt will be destroyed by things far beyond our control. And that is what is happening right now.
    If anything Michael’s book doesn’t go far enough to telling what is really happening in D.C. and elsewhere.
    Eventually the truth comes out. And when it does all the President’s men cannot put Humpty Dumpty together again. Lies always become too complicated to keep track of. And like a house of cards, it will all fall down.

    These weather conditions are simply part of a much bigger picture and we are not being told the entire truth about any of it. I think when the real truth comes out, a lot of people are in for quite a shock.

      Dream on. C02 is transparent to infrared radiation(heat) at most temperatures, combined with it’s concentration 400/1,000,000(close to zero) makes C02 a most benign part of the atmosphere(climatologically speaking). But more importantly, reducing gullibility is the entire point of this web page. How did you fall through the cracks?

    Here in Philadelphia (or as they call it in some parts of town, Killadelphia), we’ve been having hot, humid, swampy, muggy weather and violent thunderstorms day after day. I’m hoping the Jersey Shore doesn’t get hit with a hurricane this year.

    “…but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.” Psalm 68:6

    Revelation 16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

    I live in Orem Utah and just recently the neighboring town of Lindon got hit with E-coli in the water supply. I was at work when my supervisor told me not to drink the water. It knocked out the soda fountain at my work, I bought 2 cases of water bottles at Wal Mart so I never get caught like that again, but from the sound of things I should be looking to acquire something like 200 cases.

    • Leslie

      Terrorists have also threatened to poison our water supply. I do not know if this was terrorists, but strange coincidence again…we really need to wake up.

  • Sharon Zecchinelli

    It is weather modification. Chemtrails and NEXRAD radar is driving the jet stream and the storms these days. Look on YouTube for Scott Stevens. He is a meteorologist. What you will learn will blow your mind.

    We’ve been controlling forest fires now for a hundred years, the fuel is just piling up instead of burning off slowly. There are things that home owners can do in these areas but they don’t, they won’t, or they are not allowed to do because of strong enviromental laws. It’s all natural, we humans some times get in the way.

  • Sophia

    Jihadists are starting the fires, blame the Jews stupid!

  • markww

    Whole story wrong Terror groups have already admitted they have been starting the fires in Western America. IN FACT I sent the story to fox news in Phoenix TV station 2 weeks ago.

    What will happen ? A reindeer island event will happen. When the population far outstrips the local carrying capacity a massive die off occurs. Along with a massive dislocation of the survivors as climate refugees.

    http://www.thewarningsecondcoming.com The third seal is about to open up. You need to prepare now. Were in the endtimes. Get food water and whatever else you will need. I’m not kidding!

  • Jeff Martin

    Why do you suppose the Cliff Dwellers in the Southwest moved somewhere else a thousand years ago? The climate got WARMER. There wasn’t HAARP or Chemtrails or an increase or decrease in Co2 or man-made goat squeeze. Mother Nature just happens…

  • Arizona

    THE FIREFIGHTERS in colorado have caught the RUSSIANS setting fires many times and the state police gangs,REFUSE TO ARREST THEM,so kiss your forests goodby and ALL THE WILDLIFE in them too,when a FAMINE COMES ON AMERICA,and your starving to death ,just REMEMBER,you could have done something about it,BUT YOU WERE AFRAID TO SAY, STOP………………………..

  • Leslie

    Terrorists are doing it…when they captured bin laden they also found plans to start wild fires in western us and they have been threatening to do this since 2000.D
    Don’t you find it an odd coincidence that terrorists have been threatening to do this since 20000 and we have had the worst years of wild fires on record since the year 2000 as well? Wake up! We need to do something about this. It so sad and so destructive! They are pure evil.

    Better start saving and storing food if the drought gets to bad food prices will go wayyyy up I live in mi last years drought was very bad I drive past fields everyday last year they were all Browne and dead even with irrigation my garden didn’t do good eather my lawn was a nice crisp Browne lol but still had to keep it wet one cigrette but and my lawn and forest and house whould have burned dowen in no time hope it doesn’t happen agen my husbends landscape service was bad to nothing to mow and people didn’t want to pay for sod only seed hope it dosent get worse it the west burns to bad there will be nothing to re grow back might turn to massive desert
