Scott Adams offered a mea culpa after he fell for the map that showed the fires stopping at the Canadian border. Turns out it was a flaw in the infographic.

It appears there was a [more or less] normal fire season, but the wackos that were being herded around lost all direction when their handlers started getting busted. So they 'got out of Dodge' with their leaf blowers and accelerants.

(Elemental Mystery, Post-Nova Planet, Red Dust X Spiral | S0 News Sep.17.2020) was ontopic today:

There were 6 people caught trying to start wild fires in California. Basic criminology tells us there's probably 10x that many still on the loose.
All that non-gold platinum group metals in the asteroids makes me think there might be a dieing/exploding star near by.

It's all down to radioactive decay. Isotopes are too hot to have traveled from afar. The micro-nova is one AU away.

Faint echoes from the dim recesses of history disagree.

Quoth Twitter: 'This is not available to you'. If is a talking head with flame thrower stage right to stage left and a leaf blower from stage left to stage right in the background, that's the reference. Apparently it's common knowldege:

Well you know it's dead since they changed the movement name again, now it's the "climate crisis" and there's no time to go over numbers and data it's going to happen and we have to do something drastic right now like extend the lockdowns.
