Fire and rain: Fed scientists point to wild April

By SETH BORENSTEIN , 05.09.11, 06:28 PM EDT — Federal meteorologists say April was a historic month for wild weather in the United States, and it wasn’t just the killer tornado outbreak that set records.April included an odd mix of downpours, droughts and wildfires. Six Midwestern states – Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia – set records for the wettest April since 1895. The U.S. also had the most acres burned by wildfire for April since 2000.

According to the Texas Forest Service, across the state more than 4,200 square miles have been burned by more than 10,500 fires since Nov. 15. Since the TFS began tracking fire damage in 1985, six of the 10 largest fires have occurred in 2011, including the massiveRock House fire in Presidio and Jeff Davis counties. That fire, the third largest in TFS records, burned 491 square miles in April and May, while three fires in Brewster County which have burned a combined 331 square miles.

Comment by Adamantine:

Wildfires are increased in some areas of drought. The month of June is yet young.

PS: Now is a good time to buy meat in the US.

Across Texas some ranchers, faced with no hay crop, have opted to reduce the size of their herds rather than pay up to $2 a day per head to truck-in feed. In West Texas, Wight said he’s seen people, including himself, selling the least robust of their herdBecause people are shedding unneeded mouths to feed, Stakely said, the livestock markets are nearly choked with cattle.

If substantial rain doesn’t come later in the summer, Wight said many ranchers will probably liquidate their herds and start again next year.

It is very difficult to truly know if trends are in place and important. I am unsure but again suspicious because of what else I see in possible prophecy.

For example the Salmon which were very low in the Pacific Northwest have recovered mostly. In addition California and Australia which were in drought last year are no longer. There does seem to be an erratic worsening of conditions worldwide. It is not so bad that if one is not personally involved one cannot simply ignore the problems.
