Gov. Moonbeam blames global warming for Calif. fires — and “people in charge” for not “doing what it takes to slow down climate change”

Better start clearing out that underbrush, Jerry.

The LA Times reports:

“Our climate is changing, the weather is becoming more intense,” Brown said in an airplane hangar filled with trucks, airplanes and helicopters used by the state to fight fires. “It’s going to cost a lot of money and a lot of lives.

“The big issue (is) how do we adapt,” Brown said ,“because it doesn’t look like the people who are in charge are going to do what it takes to really slow down this climate change, so we are going to have to adapt. And adapting is going to be very, very expensive.”

  1. Seems CA is the breakfast cereal state. Full of flakes and nuts. Flat broke so the only green they have now is eco. Poor people.

  2. As a California Native who no longer lives there (15 years), I weep for my home state. Brown was bad enough once but two times in the driver’s seat will be the death knell. However I won’t put all the blame on Brown – the state has filled up with social misfits and cultural castoffs from everywhere else who come to the state and reinvent themselves and no one pries too carefully into their backgrounds. The looney ideas they bring has been the real downfall of California culture.

    And the phrase that describes the culture is “Land Of Fruits And Nuts.”

  3. By taxing and regulating businesses and people out of state I’d say Brown is doing a heckuva job in his quest to slow down climate change

  4. It reminds me of Hitler’s last order:

    “If the war is lost, the nation will also perish. This fate is inevitable. There is no necessity to take into consideration the basis which the people will need to continue even a most primitive existence. On the contrary, it will be better to destroy these things ourselves, because this nation will have proved to be the weaker one and the future will belong solely to the stronger eastern nation. Besides, those who will remain after the battle are only the inferior ones, for the good ones have all been killed.”

    -Hitler to Speer.

  5. Let’s see: People build in areas that burn on a regular basis. They don’t clear underbrush or have defensible space. After a fire, the people come back, build again and wait until the same thing happens again. Unless climate change increases stupidity, I don’t think that’s the cause. (I did notice they are at least pushing for less flammable homes. I guess it’s a start.)

  6. I understand that in Aus. the greens do not allow people to clear underbrush etc around their homes so when the fire season comes they are stuck. Maybe CA took a page out of that book?

  7. I’m not sure which group started this, or if both places just independently followed the line. My sister lives in CA–she told me once you can have goats brought in to eat the weeds on properties, but you cannot cut the weeds or mow. I guess the greens still believe that nature is benevolent and we are the problem. Or they’re hoping enough fires will drive out the parasitic humans? It’s so hard to tell.
