Trump Is An Idiot

Trump blames California for it’s fiery disaster. He blamed forest management and now he’s adding “raking the weeds” as deficiencies. I guess he’s never seen a forest. Every crumb of every tree falls to the ground and is tinder after months of drought. So are the branches of the trees. The only way to avoid all fires through management of forests is to remove the forests, the reason folks went to live there…

What an idiot. It’s like saying NYC should be bull-dozed to prevent crime or the swamp in Washington should be filled in with concrete. It’s just not practical/possible/reasonable. OTOH, we know dry spells in CA are getting hotter, drier and longer. Wonder why? Could it be the gigatons of CO2 we are carelessly dumping into the atmosphere turning it into a greenhouse roasting in the Sun? These forest fires can only be eliminated practically by irrigation in a state that already rations water. The latest big fire may have been sparked by a powerline. Can’t do without those but we could do without gas-guzzling automobiles spewing sparks out the tail-pipe. This is another reason to switch to EVs.
