NARRATIVE COLLAPSE: Even the MSM now admits that the wildfires in Greece were caused by arson, not ‘climate change’.https://t.co/scuJwjjFGi

We got him.
Fire department officials in Greece have arrested two men for allegedly starting wildfires on purpose, while hundreds of firefighters battled blazes that have killed at least 21 people in the past week.
One man was arrested on the Greek island of Evia for allegedly setting fire to dried grass in the Karystos area. The fire department said the man confessed to having set four other fires in the area in July and August.
A second man arrested in the Larissa area of central Greece was also accused of intentionally setting fire to dried vegetation.
Officials have blamed arson for several fires in Greece over the past week, although it was unclear what sparked the country’s largest blazes, including one in the north-eastern region of Evros, where nearly all the fire-attributed deaths occurred, and another on the fringes of Athens.
“Some … arsonists are setting fires, endangering forests, property and above all human lives,” Vassilis Kikilias, Greece’s climate crisis and civil protection minister, said on Thursday. “What is happening is not just unacceptable, but despicable and criminal.”

The minister said nine fires were set in the space of four hours on Thursday morning in the Avlona area in the northern foothills of Mount Parnitha, a mountain on the north-western fringes of Athens that is one of the capital’s last green areas.
A major fire was already burning on the southern side of the mountain at the time, and it continued to burn on Saturday. “You are committing a crime against the country,” Kikilias said. “We will find you. You will be held accountable to justice.”
On Thursday, police arrested a 45-year-old man on suspicion of arson for allegedly setting at least three fires in the Avlona area. A search of his home uncovered kindling, a fire torch gun and pine needles, police said.
The daily outbreak of dozens of fires has plagued Greece over the past week as gale-force winds and hot, dry summer conditions combine to whip up flames and hamper firefighting efforts. Firefighters tackled 111 blazes Friday, including 59 that broke out between Thursday and Friday evenings, the fire department said.
Although most were controlled in their early stages, some grew into massive blazes that have consumed homes and vast tracts of forest.
This happens in America too.
We’ve gone into the fact that forest fires are natural. I don’t know how people don’t know that. We’ve also explained, with sources, that if you want to prevent natural forest fires from getting out of control, you have to manage the forests by removing debris and selectively cutting trees.
I’m not going into all that right now, but you can look up the articles Anglin wrote or look at anything that has been written. No one disagrees that forest fires are natural, these people just claim – with no objective metric with which to measure this – that “global warming is making it worse.”
But at the same time, people start these fires on purpose. In California, they caught antifa doing it. Maybe the antifa just want chaos and doom because they have anti-social personalities, or maybe they do it as a false flag to promote the global warming narrative.
Out-of-control fires have been raging for three days in Greece and are now threatening the town of Alexandroúpoli.
A state of emergency has been declared and 13 villages have been evacuated.

Wildfires continue in Greece following the government’s admission that “Most fires in Greece were started by human hand”.
The “climate change” arsonists appear to have free reign to start fires anywhere they want.
It also seems their controllers are targeting areas near… pic.twitter.com/IgcTBE86Nj
