Devastating wildfires have devastated California over the last couple weeks and over 70 people have been killed and many more are missing. Everyone is still trying to determine the cause of the fire but President Trump made the correct point that there are many things California could do better when it comes to preventing fires.
The media has ruthlessly mocked Trump over this tweet despite the fact he’s absolutely correct that California’s forest management has been a disaster for years.
In fact, the governor of California just quietly admitted Trump has a point.
From The Daily Wire:
California Gov. Jerry Brown appears to have quietly admitted President Donald Trump’s suggestion about improving California forestry was correct and is now urging state lawmakers to loosen restrictive logging regulations put in place to appease environmentalists.
The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Brown is proposing one of the most significant changes to the state’s logging rules in nearly half a century.
“Gov. Jerry Brown is proposing broad new changes to California’s logging rules that would allow landowners to cut larger trees and build temporary roads without obtaining a permit as a way to thin more forests across the state,” the paper reports.
Obviously, wildfires will always be an issue in California and they always have been. However, there are things that can be done to minimize the damage and loss of life. Improving the forestry is just one of the ways to make things better.
Be sure to keep the people of California in your prayers.
