Historic California Sequoia Collapses From ‘Climate Change’

Did you hear this one?

(SF Gate) The historic Pioneer Cabin Tree, a former “drive-through” giant sequoia in Calaveras Big Trees State Park in Calaveras County, was felled in California’s weekend storms.

The tree was hollowed out in the 1880s to allow tourists to pass through it, and even allowed cars, but more recently has hosted only hikers. It was part of the “Big Trees Trail” at the state park.

Jim Allday of Arnold is a volunteer at the park who was working there Sunday. He said the tree went down about 2 p.m. and “shattered” on impact.

So, of course, since all these storms are being blamed on ‘climate change’, we get this

    Maybe if you chop a hole through a thousand year old tree it may fall over. Ya think?

    Do these people realize that everything has a beginning and an end? Even a tree?

    There are few intelligent things on Twitter. Most who use it, I believe, think everyone wants to know how they feel. It’s like my golf game: No one cares!

    A thousand year old tree, several years of natural drought, now an abundance of rain. Gee, I wonder what happened?

    For the tree to have “shattered” like it did suggests that the tree was not fairing too well, and I guess when they carve a hole in its base, the tap root has gone……..I am surprised that the tree stood for so long
