With 85+ people now dead California's government officials cry climate change, but they fail to mention the save-everything forest management practices that got them in his hot mess.

    1. I was there, and I believe those fires were set. period. they were also allowed to burn. the fire in the fall of 2017 was the first one, and I was in Sonoma County, the sheriff sends emergency text alerts – but he did not send one out for the fire which happened late at night. Why not?????? My friend’s son only got out because his brother was awake in San Francisco and saw news on the internet and called him to wake him up. He then barely got out of Santa Rosa in time.

    2. Log it to reduce fire?
      I don’t know who started this meme, but it is simply a lie. If conditions are right, there will be fire. Guess what, that fire will burn shrubs, prairies, forest, and whatever happens to be there when conditions of drought, wind, heat, and ignition come together.
      People assume much and know very little. They never ask why these fires are raging, they just meekly accept the narrative provided by their fave echo chamber.
      Here’s a hint for anyone who might want to learn something more, go and discover exactly how fires are being “fought”.

      1. Perhaps qualifying the argument will help the uninformed gain some needed wisdom…

        Proper logging and forest management will “help prevent forest fires”… under normal conditions.
        Lightning is going to bring fire, but a managed forest/with logging/access roads is easier to extinguish!
        Keeping it all wild brings wild fires 🙂

        If the grasslands/fields bordering the forests are kept bush hogged, when they’re not being used as log staging areas, during harvest periods, any grass fires will be hindered from spreading into the forests.
        Thinning the bordering trees will mitigate fire volatility. Pruning lower branches will help for that as well, but impractical for State and National forests, as there are too many trees to prune vs private land holdings.
        It might need to be done as a forestry or an agriculture outreach/class; to be economically viable.

        A selective harvest will open the forest canopy and allow more rain fall into the forest; to dampen the forest floor and help prevent fires.
        Allowing the people to harvest most of the dead and down trees as fuel would have helped prevent the wild fires in California. Keeping abreast of the insects and disease that decimated the forests in California would have helped as well…
        The BLM, USDA, Dept A, B, C, or D, etc… are supposed to be doing this anyway, whether or not, It’s California, Idaho, or Micjhigan…

        Some clear cutting/buffer zones would help prevent fires from spreading so quickly.
        Grazing grasslands and forests with goat herds will help reduce fuel and help with fire prevention, but the drawbacks of that are the vegetation that you want to allow to grow is also eaten, along with desired forest regeneration that Poplar/Aspen trees need.

        I think it’s time to hug our children and not trees..
        Let’s borrow some lessons from Smoky the Bear and take our children outdoors and teach them to be a careful and a happy camper!
        It would help to take them to Ag farms and teach them where our food comes from, instead of them being anti social towards groups of people that want to shoot guns, hunt, fish, eat meat, vs vegetarian etc…
        How about teaching our children what happens to criminals who rob and shoot other people… vs getting along with them who are different from us!
        Shall we discuss life’s choices, litter bugs, social responsibilities, and School vs homelessness………..

    3. Bad things Happen !
      Be it at the Hands of Man or Mother Nature !
      Lots of things Could Have been Done to Reduce some ,
      of the Damage and Deaths. Such as Clear cutting in ,
      Populated Areas . Reduce Building in and near Forests & Woods !
      Building on a Mountain is Niece but that’s the chance You take .
      Limited Water supply for Trouble when it comes is part of the Chance
      you take . Not making Urban area’s Fire Safe is Mans Fault .

    4. The U.S. Forest Service mismanages forests all across the country, but in states where you have environmental groups with the most influence the forests are even worse off and any attempt by the USFS to “fix” problems is cancelled and worsened. The two worst fires in Arizona’s history were the result of court orders by environmentalist shutting down the USFS trying to prevent major fires by thinning of fuels.

    5. Federal ownership is 19 million acres or 57% a majority of California woods. This is not a single states fault. But why let facts get in the way of a cartoon taking a cheep shot at the deaths of 88 Americans.

      1. Tomcat14 – No-one is taking a cheap shot at 88 or more tragic deaths. The cartoon is just a stark reminder that previous federal and state admins have said for the record they would prefer all the forests to be burnt to the ground than allow one tree to be logged…so I guess we can ignore those facts too while it is convenient for the right narrative.

    6. Good one and true! They gotta get rid of all that dead wood etc. And while they are at it, they could even get get rid of some of that dead wood in their capitol too.
