Read here. The IPCC and its global warming scientists have predicted that global warming will increase forest fire activity. There was no actual science that supported these predictions, merely AGW speculative assertions. Again, as is often the case, new research shows lame alarmist IPCC predictions to be nothing more than smoke.
"A recent article has appeared in Global Change Biology written by seven scientists with various institutions in Canada, France, and Germany that might come as a surprise to the alarmist camp.....“Some contradictory evidence in the literature has led authors to question the likelihood of seeing an increase in boreal wildfire risk under warming of the Northern Hemisphere. Despite warming since about 1850 and increased incidence of large forest fires in the 1980s, a number of studies indicated a decrease in boreal fire activity in the last 150 years or so.”.....The authors [Girardin et al.] reinforce their claim that fires activity has decreased noting “The fact that diminishing fire activity has also been detected on lake islands on which fire suppression has never been conducted provides another argument in support of climate control.”
