California officials say climate change is to blame for the deadly wildfires burning in the state for nearly a month

The wildfires that have killed at least 36 people and burned through more than 4.6 million acres on the West Coast are fueled by climate change, officials in California and Washington said again

Lol! That's almost laughable! The wild fires are due to these states not spending money to thin out the forest, plan and simple. You don't see other countries in Europe and across the world except in South America having this issue. These fire are more than likely set by Climate Change activist to somehow try to prove that theory. In reality these states are going broke because of mismanagement of funding, if they get billions of dollars for the climate change theory, they will simply funnel that money into other programs were they are falling short. We could spend the entire GDP every year for Climate change and still wouldn't make a dent in it.


There are 818 million acres of forests in the US. Much of it in rugged and remote areas. California has 33 million acres. It is generally left in a natural state although there is some criticism that we put out too many fires and should let the natural fires burn. The local government usually dictates that a fire clearance around homes. 200 feet in my area. I’d sure like to hear some better suggestion that to clear the brush. It really makes no sense. If it were not so hot and dry the fires wouldn’t be nearly as bad. I live in Orange County about 30 miles from the ocean. A couple weeks back it hit 116 degrees at my house. Yeah... it looks like global warming to me. I sure wish we had a national leader that didn’t have his head in his a55.


Might want to research magnetic pole reversals.

Fires clear the land so the wealthy can buy the land cheap. Then mine the Western lands worth multiple billions in minerals, then turn around to build 3-4 hundred thousand dollar homes to sell.

The probs with forrest management by dem governors could be solved if their arms were not painted on and learned to use a rake but why would they want to.

Also, the human population occupies 2% of the Earths landmass and the junk products made with built in obsolescence so corporations can keep reselling more junk is now all the consumers fault



Guess who is the manager in charge! And goes to shield how a leader Trump is. The majority of the burning forest is 70% of USA federal controlled forestry governed by Trump and his administrators and only the 25% of the burning forests is controlled by the states public land , parks and Indian natives reservations! This is your president liars again and this week big liar also look at The Virus report where he kept away from America to keep us calm? Only a fool will believe that! And thd other kid is that he knows more than a Scientists about forests fires., please I’ll take off my hat for all the dumb still Trump’z followers!

“If you're not from California, here are some important things you need to know about our fires:

Most of our fires are grass fires, not forest fires. In the summer, our grass turns a beautiful golden color all over the state. Even if California's forests were "raked" daily, the fires would still be happening. The state of California manages just 3% of its forest land.

The federal government manages most of it.

So when a federal official says that California's forest land is mismanaged, think: "Congratulations, you just played yourself."
If you lived in California in the 80s, you might remember people saying that California would basically burn down every year if we did not do something about "global warming," as we called it at the time. And here we are.

California is huge. We have the world's fifth largest economy, surpassed only by the US as a whole, China, Japan, and Germany. California's economy is larger than every other nation on earth. When you hear that we're "failing" and a "shithole," that's political propaganda. Economically, geographically, and demographically, we are one of the most diverse political entities on the planet.
This means that very little you can say about California applies to the state as a whole. Life in San Francisco resembles life in London more than it resembles life in Bakersfield. Part of the beauty and allure of California is that, no matter what you want, we have it. Metropolitan cities are an hour away from rolling farmland, which is an hour away from the desert, which is a few hours away from snow-capped mountains. Get in your car and drive in any direction for a few hours and you'll see six different Californias.

People come here from all over the world, and that's our strength. We are your future--no one race or ethnicity has a majority here, although Latinx people have the plurality, which will soon be true for America as a whole. But even "Latinx" is a category so broad as to be almost meaningless. California was once Mexico, so people of Mexican descent have always had the demographoc upper hand, but you can't pick up a square mile of California anywhere without getting Salvadorans and Guatemalans in that mix, along with Syrians, Lebanese, Persians, Ethiopians, people from the Caribbean, Chinese, Filipinx, and so much more. That diversity has always been one of our greatest strengths. You've heard of Sutter's Mill, where gold was first discovered? It's in the town of Coloma, which was almost entirely owned by a family of formerly enslaved Black people. You can still see the son's smithy and several other historic family buildings if you go there, which I recommend that you do! The whole town is basically a California history field trip.

California has always opened her arms to the world, and it's made us stronger, better, wealthier, and more beautiful.

We have nothing but love to give the rest of the United States. Well, that and our significant tax contributions (we pay more to the federal government than we get back), ports, industry, films, and music. Oh, and we produce the most food of any state. But mostly love.
So the next time someone tries to blame grass fires caused by lightning on "bad forest management," stand up for the Golden State.”
