Humans are the cause of most wildfires. Climate change will make that worse

  Humans are the cause of most wildfires. Climate change will make that worse Climate change is exacerbating wildfire dangers across the West, creating the perfect conditions for the main culprits to start damaging fires: human beings.People are the driving force behind the changing climate, and they are also the driving force behind most fires.Data from the National Interagency Coordination Center (NICC) indicates the vast majority of wildfires, 88 percent, were ignited by human sources on average from 2016 to 2020.As recently as last week, utility Pacific Gas & Electric said in a disclosure to California's State Utility Commission that it believes its equipment was connected to the ignition of the Dixie Fire, which has reached 40,500 acres as

As free agency dies down, the NBA offseason discussion has naturally trended in one direction. That’s right folks, “greatest player of all time” debates are back.

In an appearance on HBO’s “Back on the Record” with Bob Costas, Hall of Fame player and current TNT analyst Charles Barkley was asked who he thought the greatest player of all-time was. His answer came as no surprise but he also managed to dismiss LeBron James in the process.

“Jordan… In fairness, I don’t even put LeBron past Kobe, let’s get that out of the way. … LeBron has stacked his teams, let’s be realistic. … The struggle is part of your legacy,” Barkley said.

LeBron has always been the talk of the town no matter what the topic of conversation is. From what he's doing on the court, off the court, at his son's basketball games, or on instagram, he will bring the commentary. From "LeChoke," to "LeBum," to "Disney Rings," the names are absolutely endless with the LeBron slander, it has to contribute to a good 40% of replies in any tweets relating to the Lakers star.

This topic often riles up those around the league that feel strongly one way another and this instance proved to be no different. One of LeBron’s former teammates, Richard Jefferson came scrambling to his defense.

“In all fairness Chuck is right,” Jefferson quipped sarcastically, per ClutchPoints. “Lebron didn’t get drafted to a team with Shaq like Kobe. Cavs never found the Pippen in Bron’s first 8 years because he was too good they never drafted that high. Ps… Charles got drafted to a team with Dr.J, Moses Malone and 2 other Hall of Famers. I see his point though.”

First things first: all three players are great. Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant all brought unique skillsets to the NBA and will always be remembered as some of the best to ever lace up their shoes.

The south of Europe plays with fires. Turkey, Greece, Italy and Spain face monster fires that have been progressing for five days.

That being said, Jefferson is right to point out Barkley’s hypocrisy. Obviously the TNT analyst played with Jordan back in the day, so he got to see that greatness up close. He can’t be faulted for leaning toward him in the greatest-of-all-time debate.

However, to say the LeBron’s accomplishments don’t mean as much because he linked up with other star players is an unfair argument. Jordan had the benefit of playing alongside Scottie Pippen, one of the best defenders to ever play in the NBA and top-tier player in his own right, not to mention the strong supporting casts he had during both three-peats.

Meanwhile, Bryant had the opportunity to land on the Los Angeles Lakers, who had one of the most dominant big men of all-time in Shaquille O’Neal. For the first quarter of his career, the dynamic shooting guard wasn’t even the best player on his own team. During his later championships, Bryant was flanked by Pau Gasol, who was a six-time All Star.

This isn’t to say that LeBron hasn’t benefitted from other great players like Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis. However, to write him off from the greatest-of-all-time debate because he’s played alongside other stars doesn’t take into account that Jordan and Kobe did the same.
