Trump, Zinke fiddle and tweet while California burns
The largest wildfire in California recorded history has consumed more than 283,800 acres, to date. Here's what Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke tweeted: Fires across the west are burning hotter and more intense. The overload of dead and diseased timber in the forests makes the fires worse and more deadly. We must be able to actively manage our forests and not face frivolous litigation when we try to remove these fuels. Yeah, it's 'frivolous litigation' that's responsible for the inferno. No mention of climate change. Not even a nod to the dead residents or firefighters or 1600 structures consumed by flames.
