Remember when the left said?
« on: December 28, 2018, 06:35:27 PM »
Trump lied about Moonbeam and his failure to clean up the forests in Ca?
Well, guess what, NY Slimes had just posted an article in Jan. 19, 2018 warning that Ca was in for fires "scientists say they cannot even calculate the damage the dead-tree fires might cause; it exceeds what their current fire behavior modeling can simulate."

That's Right, Trump was Right, and Moonbeam lied. :biggrin:

Believe it or not, this pic is representative of much of the forest in the Yellow Pine belt. I'm lucky, my canyon property has a lot of natural springs, so I have Doug Fir, cedar etc, but very few yellow pine, but all around me for miles, this pic depicts most of the forest from 3000' up to around 7000'.
Yellow pine does not deal well with drought, but a healthy forest can fight off the bark beetle infestations, but when Moonbeam stopped allowing the forests to be cleaned up, the beetle infestation was allowed to reach pandemic levels never before seen in history.

The more than 100 million trees that died in California after being weakened by drought and insect infestations have transformed large swaths of the Sierra Nevada into browned-out tree cemeteries. In some areas more than 90 percent of trees are dead.

This week a group of scientists warned in the journal BioScience that the dead trees could produce wildfires on a scale and of an intensity that California has never seen.

Coming in the aftermath of the deadly and destructive fires last year both in wine country and Southern California, the warning is sobering because the scientists say they cannot even calculate the damage the dead-tree fires might cause; it exceeds what their current fire behavior modeling can simulate.

“It’s something that is going to be much more severe,” said Scott Stephens, a professor of fire science at Berkeley and the lead author of the study. “You could have higher amounts of embers coming into home areas, starting more fires.”

The authors of the study say the fire risk will ratchet up in the coming years, as the dead trees fall to the forest floor and form a tangled pile of timber resembling something like a giant bonfire.

Why do the researcher say we’ve never seen this before in California?

Mark A. Finney, an expert in fire behavior for the U.S. Forest Service and an author of the study, says California forests are much more vulnerable now because, paradoxically, they have been better protected. In their natural state, forests were regularly thinned by fire but the billions of dollars that the state spends aggressively fighting wildfires and restrictions on logging have allowed forests to accumulate an overload of vegetation.
Even CDF warned the Dims we were in serious trouble.

Mexican cartel 'soldados" cultivating marijuana plots in national forrests and throwing their cigarettes on the ground cause more forest fires that insects and drought
Evil operates best when under a disguise

Or were they accidents?
