Blame God? Don’t give Harry any ideas, now.
Senator Harry Reid’s off on another climate change kick, blaming wildfires in the western U.S. on man-made climate change:
You cannot deny the impacts of climate change: It is making the devastation from wildfires far worse. http://t.co/unGA4sQG5A

Apparently there were no large wildfires before industrialization.
One of the fires Reid cited, in Nevada, was sparked by lightning, as was the terrible Yarnell fire in Arizona.
Many tweeters aren’t buying what Harry’s selling:
.@SenatorReid So if we had global cooling it would make blizzards far worse, your point?

@SenatorReid I suppose the "Dust Bowl Days" were also caused by Global Warming or Climate Change. I repeat, YOU SIR ARE AN IDIOT!

Must everything be shamelessly politicized? When it comes to Harry Reid, there is no other option.
