Fire is perfectly natural - in fact some plants require fire to grow (ie red pine) - fire also adds necessary biomass -

Now - you build in an area prone to it - like flood plains - take precautions -

There have been fires there for aeons - could warming be making the temperature / dryness worse - possible ...... but no need looking for terrorists under every burnt fir treee

Shit, Jaybaugh, looks like your President failed to protect us, again, after being given every red cent and turned back civil liberty he asked for! I would say if Al-Qaeda lit those fires, we should impeach that loser, George W. Bush, for dereliction of duty. What is he doing, if not protecting us from terrorists with all that money, just making his buddies rich?

Well, let's see, 4% humidity, only 3 inches of rain instead of 12 this year, 90-100 degree temperatures, Santa Ana winds cooking through right on schedule as they do EVERY year and no major burns since the Cedar Fire four years ago. The bogies in the mix are drought condition that is 25% of normal rainfall and higher than normal temps for the season [according to KNBC]

Of the 12 major fires, 5 have been attributed to either downed powerlines or man-made [one was a welder, one was an arsonist] and the rest were blown ash. Of course the source was the fire captain who has dealt with this for a couple of decades and not Chertoff, disaster expert.

But since W's performance is down in the 24% range, I can see where the AQ specter would be brought out. Need to pump up those numbers.

Let me say this. I live here in San Diego where the fire was at its strongest. No f*cking terrorist did this fire. Its bone dry over here every where. The air is so dry it almost gives off this burning feeling breathing and that before the fire. The Santa Ana winds came down with almost hurricane force 80+ mph. Combine that with dry air and you have the perfect match for what happened. If we didn't occupy these dry lands the fires would still have burned. Its a disaster because we "people" live in the fire zone.

Much line New Orleans is below sea level so when tides are high its becomes dangerous to live, hence the disaster that happened there.

Sept, 11th was a man made disaster. I agree the fires may have been deliberately set but the mass amount of area that burned would have naturally happen. Thats why its called Fire Season over here. They normally happen and is also set by the Fire Department before the season even starts to prevent alot of destruction when it does take place.
