Maybe Abbott can just ban wildfires in the state of Texas. Eliminate the causes of wildfires by a bold proclamation that he will end dry terrain and ignition agents so wildfire fuel will never have the need for emergency remedies

I wonder if enough "cyclical" wildfires could cause Texas to rethink their love for hydrocarbons.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, although strong winds, dry grass and unseasonably warm weather fed the flames. 

So even if an activist intentionally set the fire (as is common) it’s still all climate change after that!

A double speculation. Well done.

And Greg, if you are offered federal assistance don’t forget you are duty bound to refuse it, because anything other than condemnation of anything Biden related is disloyal to your King

Not willing to speculate…….when the fire will be under control. 

context.

What’s the agenda you imagined then?

the article speculates with an agenda , why cant I speculate with a different agenda?

I didn’t say you couldn’t.

But in relation to that, the article doesn’t ’speculate with an agenda’. In fact the firefighter quoted in the article specifically says “we're just not willing to speculate”

So there’s that. Also any ‘agenda’ you imagined, which I expect is about climate change, is not mentioned once.

Fire season starts in mid May, Blacklabel. This fire is already the largest ever in TX. It’s the 3rd of March.

thats what is abnormal, according to what you call climate change agenda conspiracists

I lived in the Texas panhandle. It is already a parched wasteland. I'm trying to think of what might be burning out there and can't think of anything besides old crops, which wouldn't be growing this time of year anyway.

The panhandle has high winds, dust storms, and it gets cold there in winter (not like NE, SD, ND), but doesn't have THAT much snow.

"scorched prairie" - it will come back better than before after the fire consumes everything. Prairie grasses and other plants are designed to come back after fires. Outside the few cities, there isn't much out there. Remember the ending scene in Castaway with Tom Hanks when he delivers a package to a lady living in the middle of nowhere? That's west Texas.
