Some of those fires were started by environmental activists, even.

Twenty years of regulations and economic hindrances, with only God knows how many people affected, went up in smoke.

didnt' they bust a couple of 'retired University sociology professors' for arson during those fires?

This article 'linked' to another article (On an NPR site? Shudder?!) that talks about WHY these huge fires are happening; I gave the article a 'once over VERY lightly', and while it seems the gross neglect of forest management seems to be a point, it seems that 'anthro-climate-change' is still a 'thing', too.

Some warming to be expected in the next few years because of the huge eruption of that Tonga volcano injecting water into the atmosphere.

Could even explain this warm beginning of autumn we are seeing.

Not warm in my AO, after a storm passed through. Daytime highs in the high 50s/low 60s F, which means we are all checking each other for signs of frostbite.

Here we are having late summer temperatures still. The effect of that eruption shall be the inverse of the Pinatubo eruption of 1991, the later lowering temperatures by injection of SO2 in the atmosphere, the former increasing them.

More than eight months after the underwater volcano near Tonga erupted on Jan. 14, scientists are still analyzing the impacts of the violent blast, and they're discovering that it could warm the planet.

Recently, researchers calculated that the eruption of Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apa spewed a staggering 50 million tons (45 million metric tons) of water vapor into Earth's atmosphere, in addition to enormous quantities of ash and volcanic gases. This massive vapor injection increased the amount of moisture in the global stratosphere by about 5%, and could trigger a cycle of stratospheric cooling and surface heating — and these effects may persist for months to come, according to a new study.

Atmospheric water vapor absorbs solar radiation and re-emits it as heat; with tens of millions of tons of Tonga's moisture now adrift in the stratosphere, Earth's surface will be heating up — though it's unclear by how much, according to the study. But because the vapor is lighter than other volcanic aerosols and is less affected by gravity's pull, it will take longer for this warming effect to dissipate, and surface warming could continue "over the months to come," the scientists said. 

Now, what government or supranational organization does want to apply a global warming tax to that volcano?

What about the debris blown into the atmosphere? Don't that block out the sun?
