Wildfires -- And Other Disasters -- Are Way DOWN In the United States

The amount of just plain fake news on this subject the last few days has been amazing. The facts are below; via Twitter.

ADDITION: I sat down to lunch, opened today's Wall Street Journal and on op-ed page there is an article by Dr. Roger Pielke, Jr. that makes exactly the same point. Natural disasters are DOWN, not up, in recent years. 

ADDITION II: Below is an updated graph of Roger's showing the decrease in natural disasters. 2018 is on pace to have record low natural disasters.
