There is nothing good to say about these fires nor how long it took Trump to declare a federal disaster.
Nevertheless, for the first time, the words climate change are being heard in the corporate media. We progressives often forget that while sites like CD have long kept us well informed about climate change over the years, that most people are not news junkies nor policy buffs. While California burns, people are finally asking questions about climate change!
One of those climate change questions that they need to ask is what about fires next year? And fires the year after that and so on!
