It's a ghastly pattern that climate scientists around the world say has been worsened and fueled by human-caused global warming. 

And yet there are people that will come here and try to mislead others claiming this is not true, that the scientists are wrong and this is natural, normal, nothing to worry about or even something positive.

There is a point where science denialism becomes social irresponsibility.

It's just cyclical: I totally remember weather that made you choke to death when I was a child /s

What's driving all these arsonists to start fires?

There is a point where science denialism becomes social irresponsibility.

It's not just science- there's rumor mongering that emergency services, police and local governments were colluding to deliberately light fires, destroy property, so unknown "elites" could purchase the ravaged lan ds for real estate.

Lies and falsehoods, of course.

No, they don't anymore, the effects of climate change is what makes them much more dangerous than usual which is explained in the article, just contradicting the scientific experts that conclude this from the data is not valid unless you can present the data that can show they are wrong. You have presented no such thing.

Planet Earth is thirsting for tender care. Humankind and its companion species are facing enormous hardships worldwide.

Yes, they do according to the experts, and common sense.

This whole article makes the opposite claim several times, you would know if you had read it

It's a ghastly pattern that climate scientists around the world say has been worsened and fueled by human-caused global warming

Fire is just one face of climate change, which also drives broiling heat, catastrophic storms and floods and other wacky weather

Researchers say that climate change and land use changes amplified the cost of human error in this catastrophe, as wildfire, storms, floods and other disasters have been on the rise in Hawaii

Like much of mainland Spain, the popular tourist destination Tenerife has been in drought for the past several years due to climate change's impacts on regional weather patterns

So the experts opinions in the article are the opposite of what you claim them to be and you offer no evidence that the experts disregard the effects on climate change, this means your invalid appeal to authority can be demonstrated as false.

You have repeatedly claimed the opposite of what the article reads, but when asked for a reference where any institution of science supports this personal opinion of yours you have never been able to provide any.

That means it is you who is trying to impose a personal opinion and disregard what the experts express in the article without any evidence to support you.

yes, at the end of the day, we have to accept our natural environment.

yes, at the end of the day, we have to accept our natural environment.

The problems of the article are not "our natural environment" anymore, they are a consequence of human activity derived climate change. Accepting this is not something desirable since it will bring even worse disasters, the actual positive thing is to act to limit or even reverse the damage instead of pretending it is just something natural.
