There is a disinformation campaign underway to shift people's attention away from the climate by focusing on individual actions. But every year there are arsonists (people deliberately starting fires are a small percentage of the total) and people who are careless (most of the charges). What is changing is that the climate has been becoming progressively hotter and drier due to increased concentration of CO2 and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. That's why this has been the longest, hottest, driest and most destructive wildfire season on record. And while irregular cyclical factors like the Indian Ocean Dipole will nudge the climate this way or that was in a given year, the increasing concentration of greenhouse gases will relentlessly trend upward year after year.
