Gov. Jerry Brown put the states early wildfire season in global terms Monday, saying the state would have to grow accustomed to more forest fires as a consequence of climate change.

what can ya say to Moonbeam? same thing ya say to Gore.. Go away and stay away.
Not Bush fault??
It hasn’t even gotten hot there yet. WTH is he talking about.
They have had fires all of my lifetime, and NOW it’s Global Warming.
What an idiot.
74 degrees and raining in Sacramento.
I thought it was a tossed cigarette.
Moonbeam’s at it again.
I guess Moon Beam didn’t get the memo that the “global warming” hoax and scam has been dumped by the commies. It’s “gay marriage” and “amnesty for illegal aliens” that’s driving the communist party now.
Hey Moombeam, what is the percentage of corn planted in the US right now? It anything is happening it is global cooling. Of course that is caused by global warming. F’n idiot.
update - 72 degrees and pouring!
if only they spent as much time blowing their own dough as screwing other people out of theirs with their cockmamie causes...
Bill Clinton and Bloomberg unveil climate risk project
When did we start calling firebugs “global cooling” and “climate change”?
Indeed. There must be legislation to address “weather” and it’s impact upon humans. We all know that, before the advent of industry, weather didn’t exist/s.
HEY CALIFORNIA! CLEAN OUT THE DEAD BRUSH AROUND YOUR HOUSE!
You can do it. It is not difficult.
When political correct is opposite what is morally correct, the wheels fall off.
You can do it. It is not difficult.
Which is why the Liberals made it illegal to do
Blame the illegal aliens for putting that queer in office!
All those pills and weed kill brain cells. Californians can’t remember what day of the week it is.
contrary to reports of global warming, the earths temperature has actually been gradually cooling for the past 15 years as part of a regular 30-year heating-and-cooling cycle that has been observed for the past 500 years;
the Antarctic ice sheet is growing, not receding;
sea level is increasing by an imperceptible 7 inches per century, not the 20 inches thats been reported;
snowfall isnt decreasing in fact, in four of the past five years, record snowfall levels have been reported;
carbon-dioxide not only isnt causing global warming but it is physically impossible it ever could;
severe weather patterns are not becoming common; and,
the oceans are not becoming dangerously acidic.
But of course, what else could it be?
I work for a very large facility that’s bigger than some state counties. Lot’s of wilderness, lots of trees. It’s pretty much a year round occurrence to be told of a controlled burn being conducted by the USDA. I always think to myself when these fires in California start ‘Do they just leave all the deadwood to collect in the forests? Don’t they do anything to control the outbreak of fires?’ I mean, this happens every year. Seems like it would be simple to prevent. I always assume that there must be some rule that says they can’t disturb the precious ecosystem by burning off the kindling that collects every year. Then a fire eventually starts anyway, kills all the precious forest creatures, a few people and does several $100 million in damage.
I’ll admit, though, that I really don’t know the situation in CA. Never been and plan on staying as far from there as possible. Seems to be overrun with morons.
I thought this was the coolest spring on record?
It’s instructive to remember that once the Nazis and the Soviet Communists seized control of their respective governments, even total war couldn’t pry their rat weasel asses from the seats of power.
Jerry Brown and his Democommie buddies have seized the reins of power in California...
The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs. Jobs for every American is doomed to failure because of modern automation and production. We ought to recognize it and create an income-maintenance system so every single American has the dignity and the wherewithal for shelter, basic food, and medical care. Im talking about welfare for all. Without it, youre going to have warfare for all. Without a universal health care like every other civilized country, without a minimum level of income, this country will explode. You cant blame the guy at the bottom forever. At some point theres a reaction and well see that the real criminals are those calling the tune, making the rules, and walking to the bank. We have the money, we have the brain power. The United States now has the highest measured wealth of any nation ever in the history of the world. We could rebuild our cities, we could create the kind of buying power and community well-being that will provide for peace. The guaranteed income is one way.
Another way is to have always the availability of work in a nonprofit, in community service. A third is to start giving people training to develop skills where they can be self-supporting. You could come up with a cash supplement. Even conservatives have suggested a negative income tax to cut out the bureaucracy. If we were smart, wed get rid of welfare and give people a family assistance like they do in Europe
The problem isnt even a problem. Automation and technology would be a great boon if it were creative, if there were more leisure, more opportunity to engage in raising a family, providing guidance to the young, all the stuff we say we need. America will work if were all in it together. Itll work when theres a shared sense of destiny. It can be done! Its all there! What isnt there is the leadership to create the kind of social network, the safety net, the distribution that would truly create a just and equal society
We have to restore power to the family, to the neighborhood, and the community with a non-market principle, a principle of equality, of charity, of lets-take-care-of-one-another. Thats the creative challenge. First, expose relentlessly the big lie that comes over the tube every night-that if you just go out and find that job, and work harder, itll all be fine. It wont! Theres not enough work to go around and a lot of the pay is not fair. Unless you totally yank up that system and create a better one, unless the spirit changes, unless the heart opens, unless we confront power with the truth of our own unarmed but absolute fearless truth, were not going to overcome it. Evil is too embedded to be overcome by anything other than a spiritual challenge.

He said a mouthful there.. The truth hurts.
Sadly he fails to see he is its agent.
