Climate change activist and Governor of California, Jerry Brown is responsible for the recent climate of controversy hitting the state of California. The wild fires that are occurring in California are a direct result of of poor land management, of the forests that are abundant in California.
One fire alone, the Camp fire all but destroyed the city of Paradise California. At the time of this report, 56 reported deaths, 138,000 acres burned, 10, 321 structures burned, with 8,756 homes burned.
The Woolsey Fire in LosAngeles and Ventura County has destroyed more than 500 buildings and is burning at the same time of the Camp Fire.
Surprisingly, Jerry Brown sticking to his climate change agenda, claims the devastating fires are the new normal due to climate change. However, while he was on his world tour spouting the dangers of climate change,in 2016 he vetoed a bipartisan wildfire management bill. The bill SB-1463 would have given local governments more say in fire-prevention efforts through the Public Utilities Commission proceeding making maps of fire hazard areas around utility lines.
According to FlashReport.com “Supporting Obama-era regulations have resulted in the new normal: an endless and devastating fire season. Obama-era regulations introduced excessive layers of bureaucracy that blocked proper forest management and increased environmentalist litigation and costs– a result of far too many radical environmentalists, bureaucrats, Leftist politicians and judicial activists who would rather let forests burn, than let anyone thin out overgrown trees or let professional loggers harvest usable timber left from beetle infestation, or selectively cut timber.”
According to National Centers for Environmental Information, Between October 2016 and February 2017 California has had the highest precipitation average since records began being kept in 1895. The increase in plant life, and the hot dry summer has made California a tinder box of weeds and dead trees waiting for the right conditions to spark up a fire of apocalyptic proportion.
While California has made progress in cutting its emissions of green house gases, the wild fires that have occurred due to the “wacko” environmental policies of Governor Brown have wiped out any progress made.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, “The state agency that oversees most of California’s global warming programs — the California Air Resources Board — does not include wildfires in its annual inventory of emissions, the official scorecard of the state’s progress on global warming. When state officials talk about how much California has managed to cut its emissions so far, they don’t factor in wildfires.”
This begs the question, why is Jerry Brown, who is the premier source of Climate hysteria touting his climate change agenda, when his record of actually trying to control the climate is so dismal?
