Ryan Zinke blames environmentalists for the devastation and calls for an increase in timber harvesting
US interior secretary Ryan Zinke has blamed environmentalists for California’s ferocious wildfires and claimed, contrary to scientific research, that climate change had “nothing to do” with them. Instead, he said the fires were worsened because of limits on logging.
“America is better than letting these radical groups control the dialogue about climate change,” Zinke told KCRA, a TV station in northern California, on Sunday. “Extreme environmentalists have shut down public access. They talk about habitat and yet they are willing to burn it up.”

California wildfires are being magnified & made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren’t allowing massive amounts of readily available water to be properly utilized. It is being diverted into the Pacific Ocean. Must also tree clear to stop fire from spreading!

Trump is trying to accelerate the key contributor to California’s expanding wildfires – climate change
Last week, 18 wildfires were burning at once in California, including its , destroying over 1,100 homes and forcing tens of thousands of residents to evacuate. The smoke made the air in the state’s Central Valley unhealthy to breathe for a record , as I can personally attest.

Fun fact: there are currently no clouds at all over NorCal. The opaque skies from to to to Tahoe are the exclusive product of dense from numerous large .

California wildfires are being magnified & made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren’t allowing massive amounts of readily available water to be properly utilized. It is being diverted into the Pacific Ocean. Must also tree clear to stop fire from spreading!
We have plenty of water to fight these wildfires, but let’s be clear: It’s our changing climate that is leading to more severe and destructive fires
Anthropogenic climate change accounted for ∼55% of observed increases in fuel aridity from 1979 to 2015 across western US forests … and doubled the cumulative forest fire area since 1984
The Trump administration’s own budget request for the current fiscal year and the coming one proposed slashing tens of millions of dollars from the Department of Interior and U.S. Forest Service budgets dedicated to the kind of tree clearing and other forest management work experts say is needed.
It doesn’t matter whether you believe or don’t believe in climate change. What is important is we manage our forests.

Transportation was the most obvious example. We let CAFE standards stagnate from 1980 to 2010. As has shown, automakers kept improving engine technology during that time, but used it to build bigger, more powerful vehicles instead of improving fuel economy. /4
