Great Climate with Yuuuge Beautiful Forrest. Just Get Out Your Rakes! Finland & CA are exactly Same!



Trump is asked if the seeing the devastation from the California wildfires has changed his opinion on climate change.

Trump: "No. No. I have a strong opinion: I want great climate." (via CNN)

Trump, the fool, doesn't understand why Southern California has fires when Finland, a country under snow half the year, doesn't.

INCHES OF RAIN DURING SUMMER (June - Sept):

Helsinki: 12"

Los Angeles: 0.2"

DAYS OF RAIN IN SUMMER:

Helsinki: 64

Los Angeles: 2

Trump: "You gotta take care of the floors. You know the floors of the forest, very important... I was with the President of Finland... he called it a forest nation and they spent a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things and they don't have any problem."


Did I miss anything else while I was out? Oh yeah: He couldn't visit Arlington because he was busy with the countries business on the phone!

1. Did the President of Finland call Trump "Sir"?

Even if this conversation did take place and Sauli Niinistö said anything of the sort (given that three-quarters of its land is forested, they're unlikely to manicure it all), there's the awkward fact that this in this summer's heatwave, Finland suffered a series of forest fires:

Wildfires rage in Lapland, more threaten Finland from the east: https://yle.fi/uutiset/osasto/news/wildfires_rage_in_lapland_more_threaten_finland_from_the_east/10316400

How dry is it in Finland? Sun shining through a broken bottle sparked a forest fire: https://yle.fi/uutiset/osasto/news/how_dry_is_it_in_finland_sun_shining_through_a_broken_bottle_sparked_a_forest_fire/10231056

True, in recent history forest fires haven't been common in that country, but climate change could alter that - indeed possibly already is doing so:

Finland is Europe’s most heavily forested country, with 75% of its land area covered by forests (3). During the past 3 decades, the average number of forest fires has been about 1000 fires annually, with an average burnt area of 0.5 ha per fire (4). During the 20th century, there has been no significant increasing or decreasing tendency in the climate-driven forest fire danger (5); summertime temperatures have increased (6) but no significant changes in summertime precipitation have been observed yet (7).

From climate projections (SRES A1B emission scenario) changes in temperature and precipitation have been estimated for 2010−2029 and 2080−2099 compared with 1961-1990 (8). From these estimates, changes in the number of days with a high forest fire danger in Finland were estimated for the forest fire ‘high season’, i.e. June to August. The climate change projections showed an average summertime mean temperature rise in Finland by 1.5°C for 2010−2029 and by 4°C for 2080−2099, and a general precipitation increase for most of the country. These changes would result in an increase of the probability of forest fire danger days (FDDs) by 56-75% for 2010−2029 and 71-91% for 2080−2099. The estimated probability increase was largest in northern Finland and smallest in eastern Finland. On average, the number of forest fire danger days was projected to increase by 1 day for 2010−2029 and by 7 to 10 days for 2080−2099, compared with 1961-1990. The uncertainty in this number is mainly due to uncertainty in the sign and magnitude of future precipitation change. The actual number of fires ignited, however, also strongly depends on socio-economical changes (8)

The main mitigation solution mentioned in the article above is moving from conifer to broadleaf plantations. That and praying for rain to continue.

2. The abysmal lack of knowledge and comprehension skills...

Is exceeded only by his malignant narcissism and pathological lying.

As for why he didn't go to Arlington, I guess he was too busy spending time with/talking to Chris Wallace, "we did a lot of calling as you know,” Trump told Fox News anchor Chris Wallace.

3. MAGA advisor to Trump: Since USA is in the northern hemisphere,

and Finland is in southern hemisphere, maybe we can borrow their rakes when they don't need them.
