Democrats hate Donald Trump, and take absolutely any chance they can to take a jab at him. They even blame him for things that aren’t his fault or completely out of his control. Former California Governor Jerry Brown is using the state’s wildfires as a political statement and attempting to blame them on President Trump and the Republican Party.
On Tuesday, Brown told Congress that Conservatives are responsible for the fires ravaging California, because they oppose drastic climate change policies.
“California’s burning while the deniers make a joke out of the standards that protect us all,” he told the House Oversight Committee, “The blood is on your soul here and I hope you wake up. Because this is not politics, this is life, this is morality. … This is real.”
This is interesting because so called “climate change” is a myth. Yes, the climate changes but it has nothing to do with humans and to think we can stop the weather from changing is foolish. I am not saying that we shouldn’t recycle or do things to help keep our planet clean, but to think we can control the temperature is just ridiculous.
Brown was testifying against efforts by the Trump administration to rescind California’s waiver that previously allowed it to set its own emissions standards for vehicles — effectively giving the state control of the entire auto industry. The administration argues that California’s policy is actually worse for the environment because higher standards make new cars — which are more energy-efficient than old cars — more difficult for consumers to buy.
The ongoing California wildfires have a variety of causes. The immediate cause of the Getty Fire in Los Angeles, for example, appears to be a tree branch that was blown by high winds into power lines, according to the Los Angeles Times. Critics fault California and its utility companies for spending money on complying with “green” initiatives rather than on burying power lines. Others also cite homeless camps, where past fires have started, and poor forestry management policies that have barred the clearing of brush that can provide fuel for wildfires.
This isn’t the first time that Brown has tried to pin the fires on climate change and Conservatives. In years past, he did the same thing, but scientists disagreed with him. They said that his argument was an example of “noble-cause corruption.”
