Climate Change Arsonists?

Democrats have stressed that the fires raging across the West are caused by “climate change.” Not all of them are, however, as numerous people have recently been arrested for starting fires. (Daily Mail) Authorities have denied that any of these people are connected to Antifa, which is an organization that loves to set fires inside cities. Some of these folks must be climate change arsonists?

Pyromaniacs are extremely dangerous, political affiliation or not. Numerous people have died in the Western fires, some of them children.

Domingo Lopez Jr, 45, was arrested by Portland Police for arson with a Molotov Cocktail on Sunday around 6:45 p.m., but released with no bail. (New York Post). A short few hours later on Monday, he was arrested again for setting 6 more fires, this time with a lighter. Fortunately, the fires were quickly put out, and the suspect was taken for mental evaluation. But are ALL of these arsonists mentally ill?


The Kelso Daily News reported,

“Andnick Andreas, 26, allegedly tried to light bushes and trees on fire at two separate locations in the area around Sixth Avenue and Cedar Street in Kelso, said Police Chief Darr Kirk.

“He actually got one bush to ignite and burn somewhat. Some neighbors came out to help put it out … and he fled the scene,” Kirk said.

Local firefighters also responded to the scene of the fires to extinguish the blaze.”

But by far the worst of the climate change arsonists was Michael Jarrod Bakkela, 41.

ABC reported,

Michael Jarrod Bakkela, 41, was jailed on two charges of arson, 15 counts of criminal mischief and 14 counts of reckless endangering for a fire that was set Tuesday in the Phoenix area in southern Oregon.

The fire merged with the raging Almeda Fire, and there is “significant damage” that police are attributing to the fire allegedly set by Bakkela, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Mike Moran told ABC News.

“There are numerous homes, many of which are burnt completely, some are just heavily damaged, that are part of the 15 counts of criminal mischief,” Moran said.

Then there was Anita Esquivel, 31, who was arrested setting fires near Highway 101 in Monterey County, California.

Then we have Jeffrey Acord, who was arrested for arson after live-streaming himself near a fire at Meridian, Washington – then telling authorities he just “happened” upon the fire and “wished” he had a fire extinguisher.

Then we have Jacob Altona, who was arrested by an Oregon State Trooper after he was discovered setting  fires at Oregon’s State Routes 512 and 7. (No photo of Altona available).

Jacob Altona allegedly set this fire that was fortunately extinguished quickly.

Citizens taking no chances against Climate Change arsonists:

One Oregon property owner found a man on her property with a lighter and held him at gunpoint until police arrived. She was taking no chances amidst the millions of acres of that West already torched (note smoke in background). He admitted he had no cigarettes on his person at the time. Kat Cast said she wouldn’t expose herself or her family to any more hate than has already occurred, but said she definitely would do it again. The man was arrested on several warrants, one of which was assaulting an officer.

When President Trump met with Gavin Newsom on Monday over California’s wildfire situation, the two delicately danced around the main contention between the two: Trump says that California mismanages its land, Newsom believes it’s all caused by Climate Change. But Newsom did admit that the state needs to “thin more trees.” Which is not exactly the management Trump was talking about but it was a step toward civility. (calmatters)

Whether human activity has anything to do with “climate change” is debatable on a planet that has gone through ice ages and heating cycles for millenia. But we can say factually that these “climate change arsonists” have definitely contributed to the problem.
