Governor Jerry Brown and the left are trying to blame the fires in California on climate change when it’s their very own environmental policies to blame.

    1. Absolute horse manure. A huge steaming pile.

      “The general public does not understand that environmentalists are not opposed to the true ‘thinning’ of forested areas to prevent large, hot fires near homes,” said Denise Boggs, UEC executive director. “We are opposed to logging projects that are nowhere near homes, in road-less areas, but are promoted under the guise of fire prevention.”

      Environmentalists say their appeals have nothing to do with ‘thinning’ and burning of small trees. Rather, they want to stop logging of old growth forests and the loss of critical wildlife habitat.

      In a letter to Bosworth, environmentalists say the real problem is that the Forest Service has chosen to focus its priorities on commercial logging rather than on protecting communities.

      Is it so hard to believe that an industry that is interested solely in making money by cutting down trees wouldn’t be nefarious enough to do exactly that; misuse good foresting practices for their own agenda?

      Before you start believing baseless claims by dimwits like Zinke it may be more effective to examine what “the environmentalists’ were actually trying to achieve; that is, ending corrupt business practices, not interfering with real forest management undertaken by people without a hidden agenda; which for the people they were suing is clearly just stripping public lands of our natural resources.

      Unless you think it’s a great idea, letting a fox manage your chicken coop. What cracks me up about you clowns is that you put all your faith in business but when the corporations start implementing their own gun control policies you cry like the big babies you are.

      But fine, while you’re busy roasting or drowning blame “the leftists” for the problems you create. That’s a lot easier than accepting responsibility for being the problem yourselves.

      As usual, simplistic, brain-dead, fact-free assertions by conservatives only exacerbates problems.

    2. It’s obviously an issue with monetary/business incentives, and/or political agendas on both sides. Here’s the deal though. Trees are the easiest part of nature to investigate and determine their age, and the weather trends and catastrophic fires they were subjected to throughout that time period. It’s hard to blame old growth trees for the fire danger because well… 200yr old trees can only burn down once per 200 yrs!
      I’m not current on all the logging practices, but I’m assuming they’re not fighting for the right to clear the underbrush and saplings. “Industry experts”, climate change deniers, and climate change alarmists should all sit down, shut up and examine the thousands of years of data we have access to from studying tree growth rings. I guess nobody ever wants to risk finding objective proof that their baseless opinions are wrong though.

    3. I used to work for the Forest Service and I can tell you that even though they make an effort to head off catastrophic wild fires, it’s not enough. Environmentalists are responsible for most of the huge fires in California and also here in Arizona, and in other states, but the US Forest Service for over a hundred years put out ever fire that broke out on USFS managed lands, even fires that would have been beneficial that would have prevented huge devistating fires in the future because there was, and still is, so much money involved in fire suppression. One of the worst fires in New Mexico was started by the USFS (Los Alimos Fire) because the Ranger wanted to impress his bosses and get promoted, even when the winds were high and the humidity was low. Environmentalists are idiots, but the Forest Service is run by career bureaucrats interested only in their own careers, regardless of what can be accomplished for the “good” of the forests by many of the rank and file who actually care about where they live and work.

      1. @JPM, Those career bureaucrats are part of the DC swamp, and need to go. Environmentalists (Enviromentals for short) do not realize that underbrush and fallen trees only get removed two ways: fire or a huge human effort.

    4. Exactly!! It’s not our fault we want to build houses and subdivisions in thickly wooded areas, it’s those dang trees fault!! The best solution is to cut them all down!! Especially old growth redwoods(you know, the ones the hippies really love)! Sure we might have to deal with some mud slides, but thankfully we won’t have forest fires! Log the trees! Log the trees! Dumb environmentalists!

    5. I’m don’t think the weak kneed liberals have the brains to stop it. They will hug a tree, then blame someone else when it burns down and takes their homes with it.
