Shortly after Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency, President Donald Trump has declared California a disaster area. This comes after a series of wildfires in the central and northern sections of the state that are burning at historic levels and have incinerated over 1 million acres that are being fueled by a combination of lightning and windstorms. Over 14,000 firefighters are on the front lines fighting almost two dozen fires and Newsom has reached out for more help.
This is what happens when environmentalists consistently oppose logging and other means to thin forests that can help reduce fuel for wildfires. Now people’s lives are ruined thanks to environmentalist who literally dominate the Golden State’s politics.
