So the AP—John Flesher—reports that the Trump administration has treated 6,736 square miles of Federal forest land—about half what Trump sought. Let’s compare that to the Obama Administration which developed a fire management strategy and increased land treatments to as much as 10,469 square miles in 2009.

I’ll wait patiently for mrgybe to apologize for the nonsense he posted.

Apparently Newsom doesn't think my opinions are nonsense.

Sensible people will want to tackle the immediate, huge problem created by mistaken forest management over decades. As Techno correctly states, we need to adapt to the reality of conditions on the ground; it will be revealing to see the actions taken by governments over the coming months and years. Will they redouble their global warming strategies, or will they finally focus on forest management? I'm betting on the latter.


Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a deal with legislative leaders Thursday on $536 million in additional funding to increase fire prevention in the parched state. While the Legislature has increased Cal Fire’s budget by hundreds of millions of dollars in recent years, adding additional helicopters, airplanes and firefighters, Thursday’s agreement centers largely on money for increasing the resiliency of California’s forests and other vulnerable areas.

The money would go toward forestry management, improvements in defensible space around rural homes, vegetation management. The agreement also provides money for “home hardening” — the desperately needed retrofitting of homes in wildfire-prone areas.

It’s still cherry blossom time, not yet cherry picking time. Nobody disagrees that we need to spend more managing forests—I have a colleague who wrote the book. The discussion on the thread that was just ignored was:

—global warming caused by burning fossil fuels has increased the need for forest management—and the cost;

—the Federal government owns the vast bulk of forest land in California, yet neither Trump nor the GOP increased funding for managing that land.

Sage? Spin.
