Bummer: Yet Another Report Shows California Wildfires Were Not Due To ‘Climate Change’

Hey, remember when the Cult of Climastrology was blaming carbon pollution for the wildfires in California (a state that has long been subjected to wildfires because of the geography, natural climate, and idiotic environmental policies)? Most recently the Camp Fire? Well now

Pacific Gas & Electric power lines caused California’s ‘deadliest and most destructive wildfire’: officials

California authorities said Wednesday that power lines owned and operated by the Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. (PG&E) caused the state’s most destructive wildfire ever – it killed 85 and nearly destroyed an entire city.

Lines owned by the San Francisco-based utility sparked the deadly, fast-moving Camp Fire on Nov. 8 in the Pulga area of Butte County, the state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) said in a news release. In total, the blaze burned 153,336 acres and destroyed in excess of 18,000 structures.

“The tinder dry vegetation and Red Flag conditions consisting of strong winds, low humidity and warm temperatures promoted this fire and caused extreme rates of spread, rapidly burning into Pulga to the east and west into Concow, Paradise, Magalia and the outskirts of east Chico,” the agency said.

The city of Paradise – population 27,000 — was nearly wiped out as residents evacuated and their homes and vehicles were engulfed in flames. Investigators also found a second nearby ignition site involving power lines owned by PG&E and vegetation that sparked another fire.

“This fire was consumed by the original fire which started earlier near Pulga,” Cal Fire said.

Much of California is very dry at that time of the year, and you get high winds. This is normal. Add in powerlines coming down, and now you have a big fire. There’s no need to drag carbon pollution into the mix.

    In this case, it’s about the lawsuits. You can’t collect a billion dollar payout from “the climate”. Nor can you collect from liberal politicians due to their forestry mismanagement practices. But big utility companies are just another way to make lawyers and activists wealthy beyond their wildest dreams.

    Libertarian blather.

    Any and all co-conspirators get burned.

    Yeah, the Corruptocrats are corrupt, but if you join their club, everything that you value should be destroyed. Especially you.

    Maybe you just thought that the return on the stock would help your retirement. Tough! You played, yo get to pay. You lost. It is the Murican Way.

    Some think that poverty is a better incentive than the socialist bullet to the back of the head.

    Hell! They will get the most desirable cells and first pick of the slops at the “mess”. Enjoy the damp box with the serial murderer.

    It makes playin’ the “game” more interesting.

    Burn any and all that are within reach.

    Just sayin’.

      Mike, After reading what you wrote, I still have no idea what you are talking about. Something about burning libertarians to keep warm?
