things look dramatically different when longer records are available

Note the dramatic fall in number of fires since 1939. The consistent low number of fires as CO2 increased shows that CO2 is NOT the cause of the 2020 outlier increase in fires since there is no increase in fires as CO2 slowly rose.

Report On The 1939 Fires

Posted on January 6, 2020 by tonyheller

After the 1939 fires in Australia, there was a commission set up to study what happened and what could have been done differently.

  1.     The fires were man-made
  2.     There was a long drought followed by extreme heat
  3.     Almost the entire state of Victoria appeared to be on fire on January 13
  4.     It was dark as night at midday
  5.     The amount of controlled burning was “ridiculously inadequate”

From the Commission’s Report:

On that day it appeared that the whole State was alight. At midday, in many places, it was dark as night. Men carrying hurricane lamps, worked to make safe their families and belongings. Travellers on the highways were trapped by fires or blazing fallen trees, and perished. Throughout the laud there was daytime darkness. At one mill, desperate but futile efforts were made to clear of inflammable scrub the borders of the mill and mill settlement. All but one person, at that mill, were burned to death, many of them while trying to burrow to imagined safety in the sawdust heap. Horses were found, still harnessed, in their stalls, dead, their limbs fantastically contorted. The full story of the killing of this small community is one of unpreparedness, because of apathy and ignorance and perhaps of something worse.

Steel girders and machinery were twisted by heat as if they had been of fine wire. Sleepers of heavy durable timber, set in the soil, their upper surfaces flush with the ground, were burnt through. Other heavy wood work disappeared, leaving no trace. Where the fire was most intense the soil was burnt and destroyed to such a depth that it may be many years before it shall have been restored by the slow chemistry of Nature. Acres upon acres of the soil itself can be retained only by the effort of man in a fight against natural erosive forces.

Candles were needed at noon    https://newenglandhistoricalsociety.com/new-england-dark-day-may-19-1780

The New England Dark Day was the darkest day of the American Revolution – a day as dark as night, a day when a candle was needed to see anything outside at noon

On May 19, 1780, the sun came up as usual, but then the skies over New England darkened as far north as Portland, Maine, and as far south as New Jersey. There George Washington, fighting the Revolutionary War, reported the Dark Day in his diary (though he seems to have gotten the date wrong). “Heavy & uncommon kind of Clouds–dark & at the same time a bright and reddish kind of light intermixed with them–brightning & darkning alternately,” Washington wrote. “This continued till afternoon when the sun began to appear. The Wind in the Morning was Easterly. After that it got to the Westward.”

New England’s Yellow Day of 1881 Stokes Fears of Doom Dark Days

Yellow days, also known as dark days, seemed to happen more frequently in New England than any place else in the world.

Fred Gordon Plummer reached that conclusion in Forest fires: their causes, extent, and effects, with a summary of recorded destruction and loss, a U. S. Forest Service book published in 1915. He reasoned that storm centers and air currents converge over the region. When the great forest fires broke out in the northern United States, winds carried the smoke to New England.

Usually they begin with a gradually increasing gloom until artificial light is necessary. They may last from a half hour to several days.

Most dark days should more properly be called ‘yellow days,’ wrote Plummer, and even the Dark Day of 1780 was preceded by a gradually increasing yellowness and an odor.

The region’s first recorded yellow day occurred on May 12, 1706. Then followed:

Oct. 21, 1716 (11 am-11:30 am)

Aug. 9 1732

May 19, 1780

July 3, 1814

Nov. 6-10, 1819

July 8, 1836

Sept. 2, 1894

Sept 24-30, 1950.
