Israeli Forest Fire Caused By...Environmentalists?

Remember the massive forest fire in Israel's Camel Forest this past December, that raged out of control for days, burning over 12,000 acres and killing 42 people? Well, behaving much as the mainstream media and the American Left after the Jared Loughner shootings, the climate-changers, Global Warmists, and Greens jumped all over the fire, even before the dead were buried, as proof of their eliminationist environmentalist theories.
Via Anorak, some of the reaction at the time:

wishes to emphasize that this fire is a direct expression of the effects of climate change and global warming which threaten us all. Climate change is already here and it is taking a heavy human toll!

Israel must take this warning sign seriously and take immediate measures in order to eradicate the effects of climate change. Israel must cancel its plans to construct another coal plant, reduce use of fossil fuels, and realize that we are dealing with an international struggle.

leftist trash-talk:

“This fire had a a strength we’ve never seen before. We have to link it to global warming,” Yisrael Tauber, a forest manager for the Jewish National Fund land conservation organization said.


Forest Fires in Israel Confirm Climate Change Predictions

The inferno that started on December 2, 2010 and burned for four days was exactly the kind of event they had predicted, says Pe’er, and, unfortunately taste of what’s in store not just for Israel, but for the entire Mediterranean region.

Only, of course, that none of this is even remotely true. As always, the truth does comes out, and the Greens should feel red-faced, or in this case, maybe

The cause of this particular fire was, sadly enough, the good intentions of a participant in the Rainbow Festival that was being held at the site. For ecological reasons, she burned toilet paper she had used so as not to leave it in nature, and in normal circumstances, that would have been the thing to do. However, due to the strong winds and the unseasonable hot air, the dry grasses caught on fire immediately, and the fire spread in four different directions simultaneously.

She's not to blame, of course, because her intentions were good. Just like every liberal who wants to save the world but winds up destroying it instead, it is only her intentions that matter, and not the results of them(wait until the Left rolls that out once socialized medicine in America starts killing thousands...).

But it is reminiscent of the Loughner shootings, in that the Left tried to use a human tragedy as a propaganda tool to press their political causes and smite their ideological enemies, while the truth often implicates themselves.

But as the Left has
no shame, expect to see this ugliness repeated. Fortunately, America learned a lesson from the Loughner shootings, and I believe the next attempt by the Democratic/media/liberal coalition to use a calamity to their advantage will be roundly ignored, if not despised.

And they already are beginning to wonder why
no one listens to them anymore...
