So what was the Obama administration doing to stop global warming?
As far as I can tell all they did was shut down some coal power plants early, confiscate a bunch of VWs, tried to stop fracking for natural gas which was the main reason coal was already in decline and block nuclear power plants during the first term, his second term appeared to quietly become pro nuclear, both nuclear weapons and power generation.

The wild fires may be a product of 60 to 70 years of modern forestry putting out small forest fires, interrupting the natural fire cycle. Allowing tree, plant and dead material density to build up way beyond natural levels.
So yes I believe that the wild fires are absolutely a direct result of man's actions in one or more ways.
