Atmospheric physicist Bill Pekny is the author of a book, A Tale of Two Climates, One Real, One Imaginary. I try to spend a lot of time on debunking the pointing to carbon dioxide is the source of all evil. The thing that needs to be gotten rid of and the other thing that I cover in the book is tornadoes, hurricanes, droughts, floods. None of these are getting worse. Some are declining. For example, wildfires. If you look back over the last century to the 1920s, there are only 20 percent. Right now, we're at about 10 million acres per year or more wildfiresfires. And that's the metric that I like to use. I think it's the best metric for how bad the wildfires are.Back in the Dust Bowl era. We were at five times. That doesn't seem to get out there and that message doesn't seem to get out there. So the purpose of the book is to plug some holes in information. It's not to convince anybody that I'm right and they're wrong, but just plug holes and educate people, because I think there's a great need for that. So we're not Doomed? No, not at all. As a matter of fact, I think what's happening on a large scale is quite normal. And if you look back into the rearview mirror of history, the last ice age we were in ended about twelve thousand five hundred years ago, and now we're in an interglacial warming period. So the end is not near as comforting.
