Brown Blames California Fires on Climate Change

Scolds Deniers for Contributing to the Problem

By Sean Brown

While addressing the tragic wildfires that have devastated different parts of California, Governor Jerry Brown has insisted climate change and climate change deniers are responsible for the current conditions.

According to ABC7, Brown, described as a “climate change evangelist,” stressed the need for the Forest Management Service to do more, however, he noted that this wasn’t the source of the problem.

“Managing all the forests in everywhere we can does not stop climate change,” Brown 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.”

Collectively burning nearly 200,000 between the Northern California Camp Fire and Southern California Woolsely Fire, Governor Brown has also requested a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration in an effort to bolster the ongoing emergency response and help residents recover from the devastation.

On top of Acting-Governor Gavin Newsom Declaring a State of Emergency last Friday, the Presidential Major Disaster Declaration would grant federal funding to support individuals impacted in the crisis by proving them with temporary housing and various legal services.

Governor Brown and President Trump have butted heads on many issues in the past and it appears nothing has changed in this case. Brown blames climate change just as the President has blamed “poor” forest management. Trump tweeted yesterday “With proper Forest Management, we can stop the devastation constantly going on in California. Get Smart!”

Brown ended his press conference stating “to those who have lost friends and family members, homes and businesses, know that the entire state is with you. As Californians, we are strong and resilient, and together we will recover.”

The exact causes of the fires have yet to be determined.
