President Trump Laughs Off Climate Change During CA Wildfires Briefing
President Trump casts cold water on hard facts indicating climate change has sparked wildfires across the West … insisting scientists don’t know what they’re talking about.
The President left his mouth open with his comments during a briefing on the disastrous wildfires with the Governor of California Gavin Newsom. The Guv dropped some hard facts about climate change, record-breaking heat waves and historic fires burning across the state – as other emergency relief officials did at the meeting.
Trump’s response… “It’s going to start to cool down. Just watch.”
It then took a direct blow to scientists and their knowledge of Earth’s climate.
Trump’s joke goes against what Newsom et al. are happening in Cali, where August was the hottest on record and the fire season is already the worst ever. Over the weekend, Governor Newsom left, standing in an ever-burning forest, to talk about climate change deniers.
Newsom was blunt, but polite on the issue during his meeting with the president … and asked him to respect California’s science-based approach to dealing with the fires.
I don’t know how it went with Governor Newsom, but Trump’s promise for cooler temperatures in California seems as respectful as telling America the coronavirus will just go away.
No deny that … the state is burning.
Our sincere thanks to
