U.S. Wildfires Map Reveals Rising Menace
A new map, done up in blazing color, plots more than a decade’s worth of the massive fires that have hit the United States, offering a revealing portrait of an increasingly common menace.
On a stark black background, complete with topographic features, the map shows not only where fires have burned between 2001 and July 2012, but also shows their intensity, veering from a wash of purplish dots for the smallest fires, up through stipples of red and smears of searing yellow for the mightiest blazes.
The data, provided by two NASA satellites, were “about two mouse clicks away,” said John Nelson, the map’s maker, and the user experience and mapping manager for IDV Solutions, a Lansing, Mich., data-visualization company.
Nelson, whose recent world earthquake map proved a fascinating undertaking, said the devastating images of Colorado Springs’s recent destructive wildfires got him wondering about the history and reach of dangerous blazes, and he easily tracked down some relevant information on U.S. government agency websites.

Worse than the Ku Klux Klan…
which actively seeks the destruction of non-white people, secret societies like “Skull and Bones” are utterly indifferent to any one particular group, white or non-white, which does not occupy their hereditary, land-owning economic echelon.
To them, workers are a commodity to be traded and sold on a global scale.  When people like us demonstrate on Wall Street they simply get in their helicopters and jets and go on vacation.  Their cash is offshore, their gold is offshore, and they can leave the country on a moment’s notice.
They truly do not give a fuck, and they have no allegiance to anything but money.
