Government manipulating forest fire statistics for "hockey stick"
The problem with trusting government agencies to collect statistics is that government agencies are by necessity partisan. As soon as some politician sees a political advantage in manipulating the data, you can no longer trust it. And in normal circumstances you might seen control of an agency passing from party to party -- thus giving them both some incentive to be accurate, for fear of suffering under the other party -- our current circumstances are far from normal. The Democrats are effectively in permanent control of the federal administrative state. Those agencies feel free to act with political bias, in everything from law enforcement, to intelligence, to even basic science.
