Governor Jerry Brown: San Diego Wildfires Due to Global Warming

Report: Almost All SD Fires Have 'Suspicious Ignition Point'

by Michelle Moons 3 hours ago

On Thursday, Governor Jerry Brown asserted that it is settled that climate change is a factor in the wildfires now devastating parts of San Diego County. Brown’s comments come at the same time that the Escondido Fire Department reported that two suspects, an adult and a juvenile, have been arrested in connection with intentionally starting the fire.

According to a story in the U-T San Diego, the governor opined, “Despite what you may hear in Washington, climate change is a factor… This is not about theory. It’s not about politics. This is about fires on the ground, people’s homes.”

When Governor Brown was asked about the suspects, he responded by saying, “I do know that people do stupid things. They throw a cigarette butt out of a car...” Moreover, Brown admitted, “If someone really wants to intentionally create fires it’s unfortunately, tragically, a very easy task.”

Brown, a staunch advocate of climate change theory, recently confirmed that Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is in danger of being overwhelmed by floods due to global warming.

I suppose that the suspicious origin of some of the fires kinda eliminates the possibility of arson, governor?...................

A few years back LA was completely surrounded by arson set wild fires.

By some weird coinky-dink this was within a month or so of al Qadea calling on muslims in America to set massive forest fires to tie up US resources...

OOH! OOH!

And the wildfires produce CO2!

Which causes more global warming!

Which makes more CO2!

OHNONONONONO!

We’re all going to die! Die! Die!

And then the climate deniers will inherit the earth!

A few years back LA was completely surrounded by arson set wild fires.

That pretty much happens every year. When I was a kid living in Santa Ana (late '60s) and then in Lancaster, the cycle repeated constantly was landslides in the spring due to rain then heavy foliage growth followed by fires in the summer. The Enviro-nuts had Cali ban the construction of fire breaks in the forests which made for some savage infernos.

Gotta wonder if Jerry's early years were too heavily involved in partying with Linda Ronstadt and Jackson Browne to remember that.

The Escondido Police Department said late Thursday that an adult and a juvenile were arrested on suspicion of trying to start a fire as wildfires continued to rage near the city and other areas of northern San Diego County.

Investigators were trying to determine whether the pair had any involvement with the brush fires that have scorched more than 10,000 acres in the county, according to a dispatcher with the Escondido Police Department.

The suspects were identified as Isaiah Silva, 19, and a 17-year-old juvenile, police said in a statement late Thursday. Both are Escondido residents.

Yes, there are frequent fires in southern California, when I used to hang out with Ben Watson the late civil defense honcho for the Pomona Valley, he said that should a fire start in the mountains north of LA during a Santa Ana wind condition, if the wind lasted a week, it would burn all the way to the Pacific, and there was nothing that could be done to stop it.

As Red Badger noted in post #5, what was different about that year was coördinated ignitions at multiple locations completely encircling the Greater Los Angeles area.

Back before the greens took over CA...they would drag an anchor chain between two Cat D-8’s to clear the brush off the hills around LA. But no more..just let it build up and burn.

If the freaking liberals and environmentalists would allow the US Forest Service to do control burns frequently and plow fire breaks, they wouldn’t have all these out of control wild fires. Idiots. They won’t even let homeowners clear the brush around their homes. Just how stupid do you have to be to not see that if you do nothing, mother nature will do it for you. Idiots.

“Dunce....”

I can’t tell if the left knowingly lies to push an agenda or they really believe the nonsense they spout. I suppose some do and some don’t. If Governor Jerry Brown seriously thinks global warming is going to put LAX under water soon, he’s a nut.

Even if the Antarctic and Greenland ice melts and causes the oceans to rise, it’s not going to happen overnight. The EPA’s absolute worst case scenario is for 72” inches (6 feet) of rise by 2100.

http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/science/future.html

That’s 86 years from now, and the rise would be very gradual over most of that time per the EPA projection—only about 2’ of rise by 2060 for example.

Now consider how much the world has changed technology-wise since 1928. That’s 86 years ago, and mankind (I’m sexist!) isn’t likely to stand still over the next 86 years. Who knows what kind of technology improvements are going to happen in that time? Even if the warming occurs and the seas rise, man adapts. That’s actually what makes us such a dominant species...we adapt where others perish.

So maybe people will have to move inland or the farming areas will move further north over time. We have plenty of our own problems in the here and now. Can we really afford to trash the US economy to fix a problem that may or may not exist 86 years from now, especially when we’re pretty much alone in the battle (about 700 million Europeans and Americans versus over 6 billion who couldn’t care less)?

Brush Regulations
California is well known for brush and wildfires, which affect the safety of homeowners. Public Resources Code 4291 requires property owners to keep 100 feet of space clear around any building or structure on their property. If your home or any outdoor structures are less than 100 feet from your property line, then you must clear the area up to the property line. Brush and other types of vegetation serve as fuel for a brush fire. According to the State Board of Forestry and Fire Protection, removing the brush increases the building’s chances of surviving a fire.

You know what’s so funny, the people working Yellowstone figured that out in ‘89. They spent year after year suppressing a fire shortly after it started, until the fateful year where all the dry, dead wood simply burned up. The inferno was so bad, the flame retardants simply did close to nothing, in fact, sometimes it made zones of the Park desolate so that plants wouldn’t grow.
