Forget a wholesale lack of evidence, climate evangelist Gov. Jerry Brown of California is blaming climate change – not poor forest management – for the wildfires wreaking havoc in his state. This is in stark contrast to ample evidence to the contrary: wildfires on the West Coast are largely the result of man-made overregulation, resulting in the underharvesting of forests and an abundance of flammable dead undergrowth and trees. Moonbeam Brown and his ilk also ignore California’s routinely hot, dry climate with cyclical, prolonged drought.

California Gov. Jerry Brown blamed climate change Sunday for the California wildfires, despite a complete lack of evidence — a day after President Donald Trump was widely criticized for blaming poor forest management.
According to the Associated Press, Brown, described as an “evangelist” for climate change, also blamed climate change deniers for the deadly fires, saying they were responsible for the deaths of California residents.
“Managing all the forests in everywhere we can does not stop climate change,” he said. “And those who deny that are definitely contributing to the tragedies that we’re now witnessing, and will continue to witness in the coming years.”
Trump’s theory is that over-regulation has led to under-harvesting of forests, leaving more fuel for fires to burn. Brown’s theory is that the global use of fossil fuels is making California warmer and drier, and more prone to fires.
