A Northern California logistics consultant was unable to book containers on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) or Union Pacific (UP) railroads for the first week of September going to and from U.S. West Coast ports and Midwest destinations.

The consultant said, “I have been working in the industry for thirty years and I have never seen anything like this. It’s weird.”

    Sounds to me like a classic issue faced by the Airline industry as well.  Plenty of resources, but resources located in the wrong geographical location, and the owner of these resources is unwilling to relocate these assets unless they've got something to haul on them to offset costs for relocation.
    Here again, we can thank the democrats for destroying the economy with the ChiCom Flu so the businesses which would normally be shipping cargo west are shut down, so UP and BNSF, despite their tall tales, can't get paid to relocate their equipment to the west coast by hauling revenue generating freight in order to haul freight inland back to the east.

    The team says a similar pattern was likely at play in 2012, and with the climate continuing to change at such a rapid pace, these kinds of conditions are probably going to become the new normal.

    Unfortunately, the researchers say that current climate models don’t account for this kind of mechanism. That means that future melting may be twice as bad as is currently predicted.

    One online commentator, sitting in for Rush, claimed the counties with the issues with fires were Democratic and had not practiced forest management in 30 years, so they could say it's all the fault of climate deniers.

    If so, I am sure they definitely waited for a fire to start naturally and didn't go out there and start fires just before an election.

    Arsonists are partially responsible for the quantity of fires started.
