Daily Question: Poor Forest Management or Climate Change?
Over the weekend, President Donald Trump sent out a series of tweets aimed at California Governor Gavin Newsom over his “terrible job” of forest management. Gavin Newsom replied Trump was “excused from the conversation” because he didn’t believe in climate change. Figured it’s a good question for our audience to discuss.
Here is the series of Tweets by President Trump:
The Governor of California, @GavinNewsom, has done a terrible job of forest management. I told him from the first day we met that he must “clean” his forest floors regardless of what his bosses, the environmentalists, DEMAND of him. Must also do burns and cut fire stoppers
..Every year, as the fire’s rage & California burns, it is the same thing-and then he comes to the Federal Government for $$$ help. No more. Get your act together Governor. You don’t see close to the level of burn in other states…But our teams are working well together in…
…putting these massive, and many, fires out. Great firefighters! Also, open up the ridiculously closed water lanes coming down from the North. Don’t pour it out into the Pacific Ocean. Should be done immediately. California desperately needs water, and you can have it now!
To those tweets, Newsom replied:
You don’t believe in climate change. You are excused from this conversation.
