WSJ Trump right about the cause of California wildfires
The biggest problem liberals and snowflakes have with President Trump is his rhetoric is so mean. Trump pointed out last week in a Tweet that proper forest management might help stop the devastation from California Wildfires.
Liberals including Governor Jerry moonbeam Brown had a collective aneurysm because the insensitive boob Trump pointed out the obvious.
Governor Brown in typical liberal fashion blamed the California wildfires on climate change. “Managing all the forests in everywhere we can does not stop climate change,” he said. “And those who deny that are definitely contributing to the tragedies that we’re now witnessing, and will continue to witness in the coming years.”
The problem with those who blame climate change is there is no scientific evidence to support their view. And typical of liberals if you argue or disagree with them you are a climate denier. Surprisingly they do not also call you a racist and a homophobic. These are the typical comebacks when liberals disagree with those speaking the truth.
With proper Forest Management, we can stop the devastation constantly going on in California. Get Smart!

President Trump pointed out the major cause of California wildfires forest mismanagement. The other problem is simply a population issue. In 1940 wildfires threatened 607,000 homes in California. That number grew to 6.7 million in 2010.
Beginning in 1994, probably under the influence of Al Gore, President Clinton put in place a plan to limit logging of old-growth trees to protect the endangered Spotted Owl in Western forests. Those moves pretty much ended what had been a policy of active management of fire threats in our national forests. Logging halted, the burnable fuel on the forest floor built up, and fires, while not more frequent, became more intense and threatening to nearby towns and homes.
“(Before 1994) mostly fuels were removed through logging, active management — which they stopped — and grazing,” Bob Zybach, a reforestation consultant who has a Ph.D. in environmental science told the Daily Caller Foundation in an interview. “You take away logging, grazing and maintenance, and you get firebombs.”
If you have 6.7 million homes surrounded by tons of kindling that some endangered ant lives in you are going to have wildfires. It is that simple doesn’t have anything to do with climate change. But to leftist you are just a climate denier saying that.
