We have a problem here in California!
The president stuck by his longstanding argument that if more is done to clear forests of dead trees, leaves, and other debris, wildfires could be virtually eliminated.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom agreed that more should be done to manage the forests, but pointed out that 57% of California’s 33 million acres of forest is owned by the federal government and just 3% is owned by the state.
Newsom also asked the president to “respect” differences of opinion on climate change, which scientists say is worsening the US’s record-breaking fires, which come amid historic drought and heat.
So, this seems like the student pointing out an egregious error by the “teacher”, no?
“It’ll start getting cooler, you just watch,” Trump replied. Was he talking about the upcoming winter, or the long-term trend that directly conflicts with his smug “opinion”?
I would imagine that only homes and businesses owned by Democrats were burned to the ground. That only Republicans cleared the ground around their homes, which is his lame solution to the problem?
From Katie Couric: As firefighters faced drier, more unpredictable conditions on the West Coast, President Trump and rival Joe Biden dueled over climate change’s role in fueling historic wildfires on Monday. In a visit to California, the president expressed skepticism over climate change, placing blame on forest mismanagement. (Fact-check: Climate change is a contributing factor to the recent blazes, per experts.) From across the U.S., Biden called him a “climate arsonist,” and warned Americans they wouldn’t be safe under a second Trump administration.
I can tell you, first hand, that homes are destroyed, people and animals are displaced, and panic and desperation is off the charts. These people need our help! Forget the politics and divisiveness for just a few weeks.
