California Gov. Jerry Brown blamed “those who deny” global warming for wildfires devastating the state, while President Donald Trump blamed the blazes on the state’s “gross mismanagement of the forests.” So, who is right?
Both of them are wrong, according to University of Washington climate scientist Cliff Mass.
“The situation is complex,” Mass told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “And most of the politician are getting things wrong.”
“President Trump is not correct that forest management is a major issue in these fires,” Mass said via email. “The recent fires are predominantly in grassland and chaparral.”
