    Is there a relationship fires in Portugal and California ?
    Both location are at the same latitude and both are coastal areas of different oceans

    Fires are common in Mediterranean climates that are kind of on the cusp between desert and wet temperate climates.

    Here in Northern California, we see heavy rains and Pacific Northwest temperate rain-forest conditions during most winters, and Baja California like desert conditions with zero rain during the summer.

    So vegetation grows rapidly during the late winter and spring, then dries up and becomes extremely flammable in the late summer and fall. You see similar things in Spain, Italy, Greece and in places like that.

    Much of the native vegetation in California has evolved to be fire tolerant. Some plant species even require fires in order to reproduce. There are pine species whose cones won't open unless there is fire.

    If one looks on the moving of the past hurricane in the Atlantic. The movement of clouds is from east to west that means the will not be rain on the European west coast and so it produces a dryness. I have not noticed if there is similar pattern in California, Is there path in the Pacific that at some part in the year that the clouds move away from the land , or at some part of the year the coastal water is cold were no rain clouds are produced ?

    I've heard the fires were directly connected via Pellucidar. No kidding, Alex Jones confirmed this.

    Alex Jones makes Trump look reasonable.

    AJ admits his on-screen persona is a facade. T.rump believes his own lies.

    Silly topic doesn't deserve serious answers. Put up something worth serious attention and I'm all ears. Little green men don't count.
