Mr. @POTUS #Trump the #MendocinoComplexFires now = LARGEST in #California history, yet you haven't shown a modicum of compassion or concern. Rather, you've made bizarrely blamed "bad environmental laws," failure to chop down trees & water dumping.
Let's look at reality:
1.) Western America is historically prone to drought cycles, but the last 20 yrs have broken all records. Groundwater is no longer replenished, and year-2-yr changes are visible from Space. (red = 100% loss of ground H20) [more]…
2.) Temperatures are soaring, with mean seasonal heat higher annually. California, to put it in your simple terms @realDonaldTrump , is getting HOTTER.

1/ Right now, there are more than 100 wildfires burning across 13 states. The federal government wants to fly in firefighters from Australia and New Zealand. Communities are going up in flames. People are being displaced from their homes.

This is the new normal.
2/ In California, the #CarrFire is still burning near Redding. As of Aug. 2, it has consumed more than 1,000 homes and killed six people.…
3/ Cal Fire has reported that the Carr Fire was started by “mechanical failure of vehicle,” an example of a human-caused wildfire. A dozen of the destructive blazes in Northern California’s fire siege last October were attributed to power lines.

So f*cked up how this a*hole cares more about ratings than the repercussions of separating children from their parents.
A toddler died shortly after being in ICE custody.
But Fox News has the highest morning ratings y'all!
Priorities, amiright.

In case he has you blocked or you have him blocked

THIS is his priority:


NOT the lives of the children he kidnapped
NOT their reunification with their parents
NOT protecting our election process

Fox News Ratings

Didn't point out the obvi:

45 hasn't addressed global warming is creating hell on earth in Northern California with 1 of the worst fires in our state's recorded history.

Consolidating and compressing my recommendations for links to track wild fires: - see replies below
Best map:

Why: You can turn on current and historical fire layers.
Time-line for satellite detections lets you see fire movement best.
Best Fire Bomber aircraft tracking: @flightradar24,-122.61/…

Why: speed, elevation profiles and individual aircraft tracking. Real-time evaluation of where the aircraft are focusing.

For the religious nuts today on Twitter promoting the theory that God is punishing California for their "lifestyle" choices with the #CarrFire , I have two things to say to you:

1: Redding is a Republican stronghold, with 20% more GOP voters than Dems
2: You're a garbage person
Many, many people in response to this tweet have claimed that they never see these kinds of messages. Okey dokey. Here ya'go.
