  • Trump Californian Wildfire comment

    Hi

    Does this tweet by President Trump have any factual basis?

    "There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments"

    I'm not interested in political tit-4-tat posts, just some actual facts,

    Regards

    Andy H

    He has made this comment before, and it's accurate. California has not made any real effort to ameliorate its forestry management problems, suffers catastrophic fires every single year, and asks for billions in taxpayer bailouts for it - again - every single year.

    If the same thing happens year after year and a state fails to plan for it, it's no longer a disaster; it's p*** poor prior planing and not the taxpayers' problem at all.

    Maybe spend less on supporting and encouraging millions of illegals and spend a little more on forestry management.

      Not to mention all those million-dollar home developers putting mcmansions out there in the pristine forest...among the beautiful trees...which are supposed to be at least 200 feet away from the house... "What? then we wouldn't get any shade."

        Yeah...that too. And the cartel marijuana plots located in all of the major parks and forests. O course, no cartel growers smoke or ever get careless...

        And everybody has propane tanks. You could hear them going off like bombs all during the reporting from Paradise, one right after the other. Sounded like an ARC LIGHT mission.

          California's Coastal Commission makes it nearly impossible for anyone to do anything with land within about 50 miles of the Pacific coast. The closer to the Pacific you get, the more the CCC stymies any attempt by anyone to do anything to land. Malibu is burning to the ground as a result. If anything, the Coastal Commission is actively working to eliminate any sort of human footprint within their boundaries of authority.

            Fire in the LA area looks to be on Fed land.
