It looks like the leftists have found a new slight to aim at Trump. They are now are practically calling Trump an arsonist, since they claim he is responsible for the California Wildfires.
California Governor Jerry Brown claimed that those who deny climate change “are definitely contributing to the tragedy.” Brown claimed that climate change has caused California to have severe droughts and higher temperatures.
“Things like this will be part of our future … things like this, and worse,’’ warned Brown at a Sunday press conference, flanked by fire and emergency officials delivering an update on three major fires still raging through the state which have killed 25 to date. “That’s why it’s so important to take steps to help communities, to do prevention and adaptation.”
“Managing all the forests everywhere we can does not stop climate change — and those that deny that are definitely contributing to the tragedy,’’ Brown said. “The chickens are coming home to roost. This is real here.” He advised that governments and officials need to be “pulling together in these tragic circumstances and thinking wisely,’’ while being “collaborative.’’
The leftist claim was partially in response to Trump’s recent tweet.
“There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”
The leftist mistook this for Trump belittling the work of the brave men and women who are fighting these forest fires. So he had to clarify in another tweet.
“More than 4,000 are fighting the Camp and Woolsey Fires in California that have burned over 170,000 acres. Our hearts are with those fighting the fires, the 52,000 who have evacuated, and the families of the 11 who have died. The destruction is catastrophic. God Bless them all.”
Bob Zybach a forester with a Ph.D. in environmental science claims these wildfires are likely due to Califonia’s strict logging regulations.
“We knew exactly what would happen if we just walked away,” Zybach claimed. Clinton restricting logging of older trees to protect owl in the area which has left the forest in this dangerous state.
“Mostly fuels were removed through logging, active management — which they stopped — and grazing,” Zybach said in an interview. “You take away logging, grazing and maintenance, and you get firebombs.”
But the Democrats would rather blame Trump and climate change. Maybe they should be more concerned about the residents in the area as opposed to owls and old trees.
