It is about global warming. Another Trump slow murder.

California is the most poorly managed state in the country. Blame the state leadership for not preparing for something that happens every year. There is a reason the state is in the social upheaval that it is currently in.



You pour it on thick, don't you... disbelief

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

Absolutely Insane. cry sad disbelief I was living in the city when the Oakland hills fire took place. The air quality from that one was bad, but this? I can't see being anywhere near that hell. Honestly, It's a shocking image. I'm in San Diego and the air quality is bad. But not this bad. feeling ill disbelief


I was seeing media feeds talking about this area calling it a Blade Runner world. And I thought there was a new movie or something coming out. So I saved it and the later realized it was this.
That's gotta be a creepy feeling.

Yosemite National Park closes as wildfires scorch West Coast

Tim Stelloh 5 hrs ago

One of America's most popular national parks, Yosemite, was closed Thursday as wildfires continued to scorch the West Coast, filling the air with toxic smoke and prompting evacuations in Southern California, officials said.

The federal government-run air quality monitor, Airnow.gov, showed that pollutant levels in the park were so high they exceeded the site's index.

Dangerous air quality is expected in the park, which is spread across nearly 1,200 square miles in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, for the next several days, the park service said. It isn't clear when Yosemite will reopen.

Two wildfires were burning in or near the park, including the massive Creek Fire to the south. The 244,756-acre blaze ignited earlier this month, trapping dozens of people at a campground in the Sierra National Forest and destroying hundreds of homes and other buildings...

'We're in unprecedented waters,' says California firefighter

AFP 1 day ago

.

.

This year's ferocious wildfires on the US West Coast are taking a heavy toll on exhausted firefighters who see no end in sight to the blazes, with the coronavirus pandemic adding another layer of risk.

For Darrell Roberts, a 20-year veteran firefighter in California, the more than two dozen major wildfires raging across the state and the unprecedented scale of the blazes are a stark reminder of climate change and the new normal.

"When resources are stripped thin and literally every firefighter is out on the frontlines, and you have firefighters coming from all over the US and other countries, we know that we're in unprecedented waters," Roberts, 42, told AFP after a three-week deployment on the frontlines. "We haven't seen fires like this before."

The severity of the ongoing blazes -- which have devoured more than five million acres in California, Oregon and Washington state and killed more than 30 people -- has tested the limits of traditional firefighting techniques and pushed crews to the point of exhaustion, he said.

But while the intense heat and unpredictable flames are known enemies for firefighters, adding to the challenge this year is the Covid-19 pandemic, which has further stretched resources.

Talking to kids about natural disasters
Angela Hatem 1 hr ago

When three-year-old August Collisson peeks outside the windows of his house in Los Angeles County, he can see that it's raining. But it isn't the puddle-jumping rain that he's used to. It's raining ash from a wildfire that's been burning since March, 10 miles from his home.
...



...

Since the start of 2020, the American West has experienced intense wildfires that have destroyed nearly 5 million acres across California, Oregon, and other states. That's in addition to a hurricane season that's resulted in so many storms that the National Hurricane Center ran through the list of predetermined 2020 storm names and started using names from the Greek alphabet.

Multiple wildfires in California prompt fresh evacuations
Elizabeth Chuck 1 hr ago

.

Multiple blazes were burning out of control in California early Monday, prompting fresh evacuation orders for a state already battered by wildfires in recent months.

In Napa County, the Glass Fire rapidly scorched at least 2,500 acres and is zero percent contained, according to Cal Fire. It started early Sunday and by evening, had roared through vineyards and buildings; at least 2,000 structures are currently threatened by it, according to NBC Bay Area.

Meanwhile, two other fires were burning in the North Bay, the station reported: The Shady Fire started west of St. Helena and was burning into the Oakmont area of Santa Rosa, while the Boysen Fire was burning northeast of Santa Rosa. Those, too, forced evacuations, and are believed to be spot fires of the Glass Fire.

Glass fire, 55,000 acres, 6% contained. Napa/Sonoma Co's affected.

Air quality is shitty in Bay Area. Can't go out too long.

Oct, historically, is the worst month.

Communities can force government action to stop out-of-control wildfires
Tony Francois, opinion contributor 1 hr ago

=

Every year, more of America's forests burn. For months now, Americans throughout entire time zones have been inundated with ash and smoke from our woodlands, neighbors' homes and ecosystems that will take years to recover.



Yet despite this predictable yearly carnage, the solutions our government can and should immediately take are lost among generalizations and talking points. Public officials on both sides of the aisle have lobbed excuses at each other over the "true" cause of these wildfires: "It's bad forest management!" "No, it's climate change!"

They are both right and they are both wrong.

Starting in the early 1900s, decades of flawed forest management led to the dangerous over-accumulation of forest fuel (dense forest brush and small trees). Then, in the past few decades, longer and more severe droughts made dangerously fire-prone forests literal tinder boxes where fires burned hotter, moved faster, grew bigger and posed ever-greater risks to forests, homes and lives. Our forests are burning uncontrollably today because of decades of questionable management and changing environmental conditions.

Two largest wildfires in Colorado history could merge

A wildfire burning in Colorado, which has charred an area larger than the city of Chicago, could merge with an even bigger fire located just a few miles away. Omar Villafranca reports.
