Surprise: Illegal Alien Arrested For Starting Colorado Wildfire

Members of the Cult of Climastrology have been blaming the Spring Creek wildfire, along with others, on ‘climate change’: talking points down in flame

Illegal immigrant arrested for starting wildfire in Colorado, police say

An illegal immigrant has been arrested on arson charges in connection with the Spring Creek wildfire in southern Colorado that has destroyed homes and forced evacuations.

“The initial cause of the fire was human caused,” the Costilla County Sheriff’s Office said Saturday in announcing the arrest of Jesper Joergensen, 52.

He was taken into custody without incident.

Reuters reported that Joergensen is not a U.S. citizen and will be handed over to U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement once he has faced the charges against him.

Deportation officers lodged an immigration detainer to hold Joergensen with the Costilla County Jail “following his arrest on criminal charges,” ICE spokesman Carl Rusnok told Fox News Sunday.

Joergensen is a Danish national, he said.

Of course, this will not deter CoC members from fear-mongering on anthropogenic climate change as being the cause of future doom, nor will it diminish their support for illegal aliens. They’re happy to jump into their fossil fueled vehicles to go attend rallies in support of Doing Something about ‘climate change’, usually meaning “tax Other People”, as well as illegal aliens.

Nor should we forget that so much of Colorado considers itself a sanctuary for illegal aliens.

You look at the talking points about other fires, such as the others burning in Colorado, such as Sugerloaf fire, which was started by lightning. Here’s Excitable Warmist William Anderegg in the Denver Post

Fires are white-hot signs of climate change in our backyard

Scientists have been studying fires and trying to predict fire risk for decades. The drivers of fires are complicated and there’s a lot of random chance involved in any given fire, but there are some crystal clear big-picture patterns. First, the West has been warming due to human greenhouse gas emissions coming from our cars, power plants, and other sources. Hotter temperatures mean lower snowpacks, earlier snowmelts, and drier forests – sound familiar from this year? All of these factors are associated with years with lots of big fires. We have been conducting research on the San Juan National Forest for a decade and I can tell you first-hand from walking around the crispy forest last week that the trees and fuels are drier than they have been in a long while.

Second, the West is burning a lot more than it used to and climate change is behind most of this. The number of large fires like the Burro and 416 Fires has increased four-fold since the 1970s. Previous fire suppression and past land use leading to overstocked forests is likely a part of this, but some careful research done in the past few years points to climate change as the most important driver. Scientists from the University of Idaho and Columbia University found that around half or more of the recent area burned by large western US wildfires was due to climate change.

These are all what are called “assumptions”, not scientific investigation. Notice that Anderegg fails to provide proof of these assumptions, nor proof that this is mostly/solely caused by Mankind’s carbon pollution. In fact, he mentions land use, then blows it off. Nor does he tell us that he’s given up his own use of fossil fuels, power from power plants, and other things that makes his life carbon neutral.

It’s also easier to blame the mythical ‘climate change’ rather than an illegal alien.

    Although he may be in the US illegally, ICE did not confirm that Joergensen is an undocumented immigrant, only that he is not a citizen.

    TEACH’s headline is meant to inflame, not enlighten. His intent is to further slur undocumented immigrants, similar to how Trump does it. But kudos for not completely hiding Joergensen’s name and nationality.

    Jesper Hjulmand Joergensen from Denmark is an anti-government, anti-Semitic, anti-homosexual, anti-Black, gun-nut anarchist. He spouts anti-Communist, anti-capitalist beliefs.

    Why didn’t ICE find this guy? I guess they were too busy loitering outside elementary school arresting peaceful moms and dads back from cleaning rooms and roofing homes. Maybe Trump has little interest in arresting European immigrants. Or maybe Joergensen has no children to jail.

    Joergensen probably didn’t start ALL the wildfires currently burning nearly 0.5 MILLION acres across Alaska, Nevada, California, Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Florida, Oregon and Wyoming. Currently, Alaska alone has almost 200,000 acres burning.

    This first half of 2018 has had over 28,000 fires burning 2.5 MILLION acres. Those “illegal aliens” have been busy!!

      That’s the best ya’ got?

      The rest of the news media said pretty much the same thing.

      And your link does nothing to support your argument, except say how many fires there were. What, you want us to believe illegals aren’t as busy being arsonists as they are murdering, stealing, beating, and raping?

  2. Professor Hale says:

    It’s always popular to blame expensive failures on things that are “outside of our control” and even more popular to blame them in accordance with a popular narrative. The alternative would be getting living people who have actual names to take responsibility for the policies they executed while they were in change of forest management.

    Certainly the climate is changing, largely warming from humans burning fossil fuels, so it’s hardly “mythical”.

    And studies show that global warming is changing the weather patterns in the western US and Alaska, leading to more expansive wildfires.

    Do you disagree with this balanced statement that you cited:

    Previous fire suppression and past land use leading to overstocked forests is likely a part of this, but some careful research done in the past few years points to climate change as the most important driver. Scientists from the University of Idaho and Columbia University found that around half or more of the recent area burned by large western US wildfires was due to climate change.

    Part land use and part global warming to blame. Agreed? Natural wildfires are a normal part of our forest ecosystems and we have suppressed those for decades. But even “controlled burns” have their risks, independent of “illegal aliens”:

      It is mythical. The methodology of all that “research” has been discredited.

      I know you still want to redistribute people’s money and tell us all how to live, but you’ll have to find another scam.

      • david7134 says:

        His statement is foolish and promotes his religion of climate change which has not in any way been substantiated. He is just a troll trying to get to cause trouble, ignore him.

      • Jeffery says:

        Ah yes, the “IS NOT!” rebuttal. Good talk.

    Lighting the wildfires Americans just won’t do themselves….

    Now that is genuinely funny. Are you sure you’re a tRumpitista? It’s really rare to find a far right winger who is also clever.

    Global warming doesn’t ignite wildfires. Alleged illegal invaders like the subject of the post do, people with campfires do, arsonists who are citizens do, lightning strikes do, power lines do, etc-and there’s more of the above in the country now then there was before, obviously. But no provable link between “climate change” and wildfires.

    On the same subject, an amusing look at the layers and layers of fact-checkers at the NYT.
