Boy, liberals sure love to politicize tragedies don’t they? It’s one of their favorite things to do. There are horrific wildfires burning in California and over 40 people have been killed with more bodies expected to be found. It’s a nightmare. Rather than try and unite us, liberals all across the board are attacking Trump and “climate change deniers”. Rocker Neil Young wasted no time bashing Trump after his house burned down and he wasn’t alone.
California’s unhinged governor Jerry Brown joined in on the action and basically pointed the finger at conservatives.
From Sacramento Bee:
Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday said wildfires like the ones spanning the state today threaten “our whole way of life” and lend urgency to efforts that would slow the impacts of man-made climate change.
“This is not the new normal,” he said, employing a phrase that state leaders have used to describe the past two deadly, prolonged California fire seasons. “This is the new abnormal, and this new abnormal will continue certainly in the next 10 to 15 years.”
If there’s one thing that liberals aren’t really fond of it’s science. If they cared about science they would look at abortion differently, they would look at transgender issues differently and they would certainly look at climate change differently.
Don’t take my word for it. Take it from a scientist. Not a fake scientist like Bill Nye but a real one.
From The Daily Caller:
California Gov. Jerry Brown blamed “those who deny” global warming for wildfires devastating the state, while President Donald Trump blamed the blazes on the state’s “gross mismanagement of the forests.” So, who is right?
Both of them are wrong, according to University of Washington climate scientist Cliff Mass.
“The situation is complex,” Mass told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “And most of the politician are getting things wrong.”
“President Trump is not correct that forest management is a major issue in these fires,” Mass said via email. “The recent fires are predominantly in grassland and chaparral.”
“And Governor Brown is not correct that global warming is a significant issue,” Mass said. “The grasses and chaparral would have been dry enough to burn no matter what, since California is typically dry after its typical long warm/dry summer and the offshore-directed Diablo/Santa Ana winds would have dried it out in any case.”
Indeed, the latest National Climate Assessment special report found there’s only a “low to medium confidence for a detectable human climate change contribution in the western United States based on existing studies.” That report was published in 2017.
Most California fires are human caused, and while the number of fires is decreasing, the size of fires in some parts of California have grown, past research shows. Some scientists say global warming has helped dry out vegetation in the west, making the region more vulnerable to fire.
To be fair, the scientist doesn’t think Trump is right about these specific fires. That’s fine. No one has claimed Trump is right about everything all the time. The interesting thing here is that a scientist is telling the climate change crowd they are wrong. They are the ones always lecturing us about science.
Obviously, no mainstream news outlet is going to have this scientist on TV to talk about the situation. The media only wants to demonize Trump and it’s shameful.
