From underground, captured in coal? For some 300 Million years ago? When the airtemperature was somethimes up to plus 14 Kelvin in average?

And it went up in the air. In a little over 200 years....

There have been massive forest fires way before the industrial revolution so you cannot pick specific fires and say that particular one was caused by humans burning fossil fuels but others are not.

Scientists have been very reluctant to state specific natural events are related to climate change.  They will say that the increased intensity of them is related but will not say a specific fire or specific hurricane wouldn’t have happened if humans were not on the planet.

A delusion that denials will successfully quell docile masses in believing and accepting injustice emerges after all else fails.  The guillotine and the fall of many dictators and Rome all were presaged by wealthy people, (e.g. RNC donors, Koch Brothers, Trump, Lutz, Norquist et. al.) transitioning from being secretive, to a last-ditch tactic of self-identification with denials of abuses of privilege that harm the under-privilege's economic environment.  May history repeat quickly and efficiently.
