The Climate Change Denialist-in-Chief visited California’s wildfire-ravaged region a couple of days ago. Naturally the wildfires are not caused by climate change, but poor forest management by Democrats. And like Covid-19 the problem will just disappear, since it is getting cooler. It is true that if forests were cleaned from all the dry twigs, branches and leaves, the fires would be less drastic than they are now, but the ultimate reason would still be climate change-associated temperature increase and drought. Wildfires have always been part of the Californian forest ecosystems. For example, the seeds of mighty redwood trees only germinate after forest fire. However, the recent increase in the frequency of wildfirescan only be explained by the general temperature increase and reduction of precipitation.
So, if suburban lifestyle is an issue in USA presidential election, four more years of Trump destroys it quite certainly.
