Former California Governor Foolishly Blames The Wildfires On Trump
Well, I guess that makes sense as Dems are blaming just about anything and everything on Trump these days. But this is clearly farfetched and is just an attempt to try and shift the blame away from the poor management of the state. California has been buckling to all sorts of environmental regulations that have a lot more to do with these fires than anything Trump has done.
“Former California Gov. Jerry Brown visited Capitol Hill on Tuesday to give an impassioned plea for dramatic action to combat climate change, citing California’s wildfires as an example of the “life-and-death” stakes.
Accusing Republicans of being “flat Earth” science deniers, Brown defended California’s efforts to set higher fuel economy standards in the face of President Trump’s attempted rollback of such rules nationally, but called for far more sweeping steps as well.
“California’s burning while the deniers make a joke out of the standards that protect us all,” Brown said. “The blood is on your soul here and I hope you wake up. Because this is not politics, this is life, this is morality. … This is real.”
“Critics fault California and its utility companies for spending money on complying with ‘green’ initiatives rather than on burying power lines. Others also cite homeless camps, where past fires have started, and poor forestry management policies that have barred the clearing of brush that can provide fuel for wildfires.” National Geographic pointed out, California’s worst fires over the past few years, including the Camp Fire and 2017’s Thomas Fire, started when power lines sparked flames in dry grasses.”
“As many as 90 percent of wildland fires in the United States are caused by people, according to the U.S. Department of Interior. Some human-caused fires result from campfires left unattended, the burning of debris, downed power lines, negligently discarded cigarettes and intentional acts of arson. The remaining 10 percent are started by lightning or lava.”
But instead, Dems would rather blame Trump and climate change as opposed to their poor leadership when it comes to forest management, outdated utilities, or the gigantic homeless population.
