I’m seeing lots of inane chatter from democrats today about how half of CA’s forest are federal lands, and therefore that’s where all the blame should go regarding our fires. Nonsense. Allow me to explain...
Radical environmentalist groups have destroyed our forests with the help of the spineless legislators who refuse to stand up to them, for fear of losing the coveted “A” rating.
For decades they have blocked legislation to thin forests, allow timber harvesting, brush removal and controlled burns.
All the dead undergrowth is left to build up, becoming fuel for fire. Add to that the fact that they even managed to keep ranchers from allowing grazing which helps keep the forest floor clean.
So when you hear democrats criticize comments about forest management, ask those democrats how much money they’ve received from groups like the Sierra Club to let our forests and homes burn to the ground.
