Maybe someone can tell Newsom to take care of our forests before we all choke to death!!!

A couple fire breaks and thinning would have saved lives and will save more if Gov. Newsom leads instead of grandstanding. Worst governor in many years. We thought Brown was bad.

Jg, Would you agree that “our forests” already possess natural cycles of growth & decomposition that have been established over millions of years before any humans even arrived here? It sounds to me that any argument that’s targeting specific forest management protocols (tree leaf cleaning?) is simply another alt-right ploy to ignore the impacts of a steadily warming planet…

No Maynard I would not agree. The natural cycle of fire may be true, but at that time in previous history there were no humans affected. It is a proven fact that fire breaks and forest management saves lives and property. It has nothing to do with left or right politics as you are trying to stir up. It does have something to do with failed state leadership.
