The hottest year in Idaho was 1934 and the coldest was 1985. The hottest temperature was 118 in Orofino in 1934. The most consecutive days with the high temperature equal to or greater than 90 was June to September 1967. (From coolweather.net.) “List of Wildfires” on Wikipedia. A little history prior to the expected hand wringing this summer by the alarmists. Others follow.

“The Average Near-Surface Temperatures of The Northern Hemisphere During the Past 11,000 years” (It’s been as warmer six previous times.) and “Greenland Ice Core – Last 11,000 Years.” Charts found in “The Climate Chronicles” by Joe Bastardi.

“Global trends in wildfires and its impacts: perceptions versus realities in a changing world”, 5-23-2016. “Weather-related Natural Disasters. Should we be concerned…”, 1-2017. “Wildfires Seem Unstoppable, but they Can Be Prevented. Here’s How”. USA Today 8-8-2018. “Paris Climate Promises Will Reduce Temperatures By Just 0.05 Degrees in 2100”. (https://bit.ly/2Xi2Yld). “The Positive Externalities of Carbon Dioxide”, Oct. 21, 2013. All found in “Global Warming Skepticism for Busy People” by Roy Spencer, PhD.

For several months, Letters on both sides of the climate issue have been seen. Presidential candidates and other politicians are heating up their rhetoric on the subject and deep-pocket donors have been pouring money into the fray. The hope here is that you will commit yourself into researching on you own to determine your beliefs. The sources cited above may accelerate your efforts.
