Smoke from west coast wildfires now stretching into GTA

Oregon wildfires: Apocalyptic cloud of smoke covers US west coast – 40,000 people evacuate

Gavin Newsom told President Trump on Monday that "climate change is real" as the president received an emergency briefing on more than 90 wildfires that have burned millions of acres in three western states.

"The science is clear, and deadly signs like these are unmistakable - climate change poses an imminent, existential threat to our way of life".

"Maybe there is a parallel universe where a pot on the stove with the burner turned to high 'starts getting cooler.' But that is not our universe", said Stanford University climate scientist Chris Field.

The Democratic governor urged the president, "Please respect, and I know you do, the difference of opinion out here as it relates to this fundamental issue on the issue of climate change".

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti accused Trump of perpetuating a lie that only forest management can curtail the massive fires seen in recent years.

The Oregon Wine Board said that it is "too early" to access the damage caused by the fires to vineyards and wineries in the state. More than 20 people have already been killed by the wildfires in the USA, which have been burning relentlessly since early August.

"You're the reason they're setting fires up here", she said, perhaps referring to false rumors that left-wing activists had sparked the wildfires.

Biden has proposed an aggressive $2-trillion plan for climate action that has gotten little voter attention in a race dominated by concerns about the coronavirus pandemic, protests over racial injustice, and disputes over the integrity of America's election systems.

"Our nation is strong because of remarkable people like these service members", Mr. Trump said.

Caitlyn Jenner Really Hopes Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick Get Back Together
They're just great kids. "I'm just going to throw them out there, and I swear to God Kourtney happened to be the last one". Kardashian concluded, "I hope that answered my sixth toe question, because I only have five toes on each foot".

"When trees fall down, after a short period of time. about 18 months, they become really dry". The fire-friendly weather is the result of warm, dry and breezy conditions.

"Or we can do it Donald Trump's way: ignore the facts, deny reality, which amounts to a full surrender and a failure to lead". "There's no way we're going to log our way out of this fire problem".

Mr. Newsom agreed with the president that "we have not done justice on our forest management".

The sustained warmth has seen six of the 20 largest fires on record in California all occur this year.

"This is another crisis, another crisis he won't take responsibility for", Biden said.

Biden is pledging to immediately move to revive and update Obama-era climate initiatives that Trump scrapped and push for a large-scale investment in public works that would reorient the economy toward green energy. This is Donald Trump's America. Confronting the worsening conditions of climate change, and the still more risky conditions to come, has "critical relevance for ongoing efforts to manage wildfire risks in California and other regions", the researchers wrote.

At a rally in Nevada, Trump blamed the way states have run the land, saying "it is about forest management". That means more fuel for bigger, more intense and damaging wildfires. Auto and truck emissions are the single biggest contributor to climate change, and California has always been empowered to set its own rules. The state's outsized influence over automobile sales has traditionally pushed automakers to adopt the California rules as their national standard. "If this is not a signal to the United States, I don't know what it will take".

As the smoke that has been clogging the air and blocking heat from the sun begins to lift, firefighters expect the weather to heat up and fire activity could increase, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said.
