  1. PG&E monopoly

    • Got Municipal districts too, that and Cal-Ed.

    • Maybe the Governor should hire contractors to cut all the trees on power line tracks, this has been going on so long that everything could have been done by now, charge the power company for the cost and see how much money you can get back. Getting elected by demonizing and suing the power company is not working, regardless of the reasons they are not getting the job done.

    • What a good sounding thing to say…. ugggghhh

    It’s really Windy. I’m catching a cold or Allergies from all the trees. It’s feel like SPRING AGAIN.

  6. Crowdafornia….🤦‍♂️

  7. Who or what started this fire?

    • it was always burning, since the world was turning…

      but seriously… this is bad! I imagine it’s near impossible to pinpoint a specific starting point. With Nestle pumping all the water out of the ground to sell at big profits, to climate change causing droughts, and heatwaves drying up the forests and everything else…. this is the new reality. But, it’s no good for anyone to just have people commenting on climate change being the problem …. the media REALLY needs to be linking these events to climate change and make a big deal over it… otherwise people won’t be thinking about it too much 🙁

    • probably electrical lines.

    Reminds of a verse in the Bible.. it’s in Revelations 🔥

  9. Things they said 40 years ago….We would be living through a new Ice Age by the year 2000.We would all die when the ozone layer disappeared.The oceans would be dead.Global Cooling would destroy the world.Acid rain would destroy our forests.Overpopulation would result in worldwide famine.We would deplete our natural resources.We would run out of oil.The polar ice caps would melt.Manhattan would be underwater.People who live in cities will have to wear gas masks.Nitrogen buildup will make the land unusable.“Decaying organic pollutants would use up all of the oxygen in America’s rivers, causing freshwater fish to suffocate.”

      Not fourty years ago. That was late 1800s and early 1900s. It was in the late 1960s that knowledge of global warming turned into mild panic after we landed on Venus, which melts iron with its CO2 atmosphere, but in the 1940s is was confirmed that we’re warming the planet rather than colling it. That might be the source of your confusion, thinking 1940s was 40 years ago. But it is true that in the 1800s, people were worried that human agriculture was sucking up so much CO2 that it could cause an ice-age. People back then had absolutely no idea how much CO2 we put out.

  10. Nature does this to clear up the old foliage…. We put them out thereby making it a yearly event….. Either rake the forest or let the fires burn….. easy- peasy.

  11. Global warming is causing this.

  12. I thought Trump was going to stop wildfires with lots of raking… Where are all the rakes!!!

  13. If California had listened to Trump the forest would have been thoroughly raked and this would not be happening!

  14. If it makes folks in California feel any better…t’rump got his a$$ booed along with “lock him up” chants tonight at the World Series. 😆

    Wow these fires are getting way out of control. The nearby states need to send their fire teams in. Prayers to.the state and all effected by this.

  16. Climate change denied by Republicans and Trump.

    What kind of clothing is that reporter wearing? Anyone?

  18. Is this why everyone BOOED Trump at the World Series? Because the country is burning, and he doesn’t care? . . .

  19. I guess they just didn’t have enough rakes 🧹

  20. VOTE Blue for the environment!! The gop is owned by big oil and dark money
