My first question is: Do you think global warming might have a role in the plethora of fires here in California?
California wildfires: Heading into the historical heart of its wildfire season, California already has set a record for acreage burned, as well as its second, third, and fourth biggest fires ever. Precious parkland is among the charred lands. The AP reports that new wildfires are ravaging bone-dry land during heat waves; locals, disrupted by the pandemic, are now contending with emergency airlifts and power outages.
I am headed over to a Red Cross temporary shelter at Clovis North High School today. If you can find it in your heart, please feel free to donate cash or food to your local Red Cross. Or better yet, volunteer your time. We need you now.
Thank you for all the people displaced by the fires.
