Post Woolsey fire, fear mongering has seemingly become the norm. Actually, it has increased beyond imagination. In addition to the usual suspects looking for personal gain to develop more, there are surprising newcomers to the “don’t consider the science, or listen to the facts”, just burn baby burn down more of what is left of the Santa Monica Mountains that was scorched by the largest fire ever in its history with over 100,000 acres of wildlife habitat wiped out and more than 23,000 trees just gone. And who are the geniuses pushing this antiquated, false, and destructive narrative? We are going to identify each and every one of them as we progress in this fight against the lunacy of intentionally igniting more fires to burn down what little habitat is left to sustain our wildlife and further destroy our unique and increasingly threatened mediterranean ecosystem.
And just as tragic, these actions actually endanger more of our mountain communities, increasing risk of wildfire wiping out our homes. We join the Chaparral Institute, the Center for Biological Diversity, the Sierra Club, and many more orgs in strongly opposing intentionally burning down more of California. And, we will start with Governor Newsom for one — who contrary to the evidence, science, facts, and history of fire behavior has issued intentional burn orders across the state….
Much more to come on this.
