It’s ‘Not Correct’ To Blame Global Warming For California’s Wildfires, Scientist Says

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.”

Fires are a part of nature so that regrowth can take place. The population has increased so
In CA. people are building in areas where these fires take place.,

I haven't seen a lot of pictures with the fire burning "chaparral and grasses." Every house is loaded with trees and plants around it. Every other picture is showing forests that are on fire on both sides of the road. Haven't seen many "grass fires."
Seems to me that if you move to a fire-prone area such as California you would want a landscape that was not so fire friendly like rocks instead of grass and cactus instead of green bushes but that is just me.
