*FROM CALIFORNIA: Gov. Brown’s link between climate change and wildfires is unsupported, fire experts say

Editor’s note:  This article, by Paige St. John and published Oct. 18th, comes to us from the LOS ANGELES TIMES.   Incidentally, the article, in turn, was critiqued (if not debunked) in a subsequent MOTHER JONES article published the following day (published here).

The ash of the Rocky fire was still hot when Gov. Jerry Brown strode to a bank of television cameras beside a blackened ridge and, flanked by firefighters, delivered a battle cry against climate change.

The wilderness fire was “a real wake-up call” to reduce the carbon pollution “that is in many respects driving all of this,” he said.

    Ok, so what we all know the climate is changing.. i donot care WTF you blame it on, it is our duty to do what we must to protect the planet and ourselves from these damn fires!!! Who cares,if he wants to blame a changing climate. Get it handled. What was the USFS motto ? Hmm, something like, “Only YOU can prevent…” this makes me so angry. Sorry Ron, this one hits a major nerve with me. I am an enviromentalist, and a capitalist, and a resident of this gorgeous valley, when the hell do we load the log trucks with charred remains and head to DC to dump them there? REALLY! I am just stunned that we have let this go so long. It is all of our responsibilities, to alter this constant course of disaster.
