    Werewolf Calif is on fire again~the new normal-what needs to be done to prevent this??



    We have these in every direction-north, north-west, north-east, south-east, south & south-west & west.......

    "There is no question former President Trump bears moral responsibility. His supporters stormed the Capitol because of the unhinged falsehoods he shouted into the world’s largest megaphone," McConnell wrote. "His behavior during and after the chaos was also unconscionable, from attacking Vice President Mike Pence during the riot to praising the criminals after it ended."

    How do you stop Snowstorms, Hurricanes, or Earthquakes?

    California needs to manage the forests and get their electric lines properly maintained. PG&E lines are 2.5 times more likely to fail and cause a fire than the American average, mostly because of age.

    Very Trumpian of you. Do you know who owns the vast majority of the land on fire? Of course not. It is federal land and Trump should go out and rake the floor. The Federal govt. owns 57 p[recent of the forest land in Calif. I guess Trump better get out his trusty rake and clean off the floors.

    Figuring out how to pay for what must be done....PG&E is now debt ridden, and the electric rates are already almost the highest in the nation....even as they have done a crap job over a lot of years.


    PG&E Knew for Years Its Lines Could Spark Wildfires, and Didn’t Fix Them
    Documents obtained by The Wall Street Journal show that the utility has long been aware that parts of its 18,500-mile transmission system were dangerously outdated
    https://www.wsj.com/articles/pg-e-kn...s%2065%20years.



    In 2010, a report commissioned by PG&E suggested the company needed to climb a sample of its towers every three to five years to determine whether they were holding up. PG&E didn't follow that suggestion. The company said it believed its use of ground and aerial inspection was sufficient to keep an eye on its transmission system. A 2017 internal presentation noted that the average age of its towers was 68 years, but the mean life expectancy was only 65 years.

    Proper forest management with controlled burns and firecuts.
    It's done in all the rest of the country.

    What does that even mean??

    As someone already pointed out, more than half is fed, not state/local.........

    You are correct on PG & E & none of them will do any time for the deaths they caused here.......

    If a camper starts a fire they will likely be charged, fined & if negligent could spend time in prison........

    ~Fixing those lines will prevent some fires from starting but the problem remains-an overabundance of fuel in the system.

    Decades & decades of prevention in the west has left so much fuel that when a fire does eventually occur the earth is left scorched=sterile 8+inches down which will take much longer to recover, if even possible...

    Agreed. California's oppressive environmental and building code rules have pushed the state to where it is. If you can't clear brush and other tender from your property, if the state refuses to build fire breaks in forests, and you are prohibited from taking steps to protect your home from fire by code without onerous permitting processes and inspections, the blame falls entirely and squarely on government.

    I suppose killing all the retarded tree-huggers is not a viable option?

    The Utilities are heavily regulated.....the blame for letting the utilities rot even as they charge some of the highest rates (maybe THE highest rates) in the country is all the fault of the states political leadership.

    But notice how they take none of the blame, they say it is all the fault of the utilities and global warming.

    Lying fucks is what they are, and the citizens let them get away with it so it will never improve.

    Pelosi's nephew got millions of dollars allocated to manage the forestry about a month or two before the really bad fires a while back.
    It was too little too late.
    Things got neglected for 2 decades or so out there.
    Tree-hugging liberal retards is why.
