Radical Progressive US Rep. and Democrat Speaker of the House from California, Nancy Pelosi was on cable news on Thursday and told audiences that the deadly fires in the state were is due to the anger of a fictional character, Mother Earth, ignoring decades of far-left policies that make poor forest management and corrupt energy industry in a failing Democrat-dominated state.
People in California who have studied the science of the forest have said nothing at all about Pelosi’s superstitions, and cite problems with polices that prevent good health for the forest.
Scientists in California wrote in a 2018 report to lawmakers, “Forests Provide Critical Statewide Benefits, but Poor Conditions Put Those Benefits at Risk. Roughly one‑third of California is forested. A combination of factors have resulted in poor conditions across these forests and watersheds, including excessive vegetation density and an overabundance of small trees and brush. Such conditions have contributed to more prevalent and severe wildfires and unprecedented tree mortality in recent years, and experts are concerned these trends will continue if steps are not taken to significantly improve the health of the state’s forests.”
“Mother Earth is telling us that she is angry about the climate crisis that is real,” Pelosi said on MSNBC.
Pelosi is a leading proponent for Democrats in government getting more taxpayer monies to fight the crisis they blame on “Mother Earth” and the “Climate”.
In fact a major part of the Democrat Platform for President is “Climate” issues that Pelosi is saying is a result of Mother Earth’s anger at the planet.
Democrat Presidential hopeful, Joe Biden talks about the Climate Crisis often, claiming to be a leading forefather of the movement.
The Governor of California, Pelosi’s nephew pushes the Democrat talking point.
Candidate for Vice Presiden, Sen. Kamala Harris of California reflect the climate change concept:
According to a nonpartisan Legislative analyst in California, it is not “mother Earth” it is in fact Democrat policies that have caused the fires, they wrote in their publication,” Forest Management Practices Have Increased Forest Density:
As noted above, forest management practices and policies over the past several decades have (1) imposed limitations on timber harvesting, (2) emphasized fire suppression, and (3) instituted a number of environmental permitting requirements. These practices and policies have combined to constrain the number of trees and other growth removed from the forest. This has significantly increased the density of trees in forests across the state, and particularly the prevalence of smaller trees and brush. Overall tree density in the state’s forested regions increased by 30 percent between the 1930s and the 2000s. These changes have also contributed to changing the relative composition of trees within the forest such that they now have considerably more small trees and comparatively fewer large trees. Figure 10 illustrates some key differences between healthy and overly dense forests. The increase in tree density can have a number of concerning implications for California’s forests—including increased mortality caused by severe wildfires and disease—as displayed in the figure and discussed below.
There are solutions, the scientists make numerous recommendations, saying, “Forest management” is generally defined as the process of planning and implementing practices for the stewardship and use of forests to meet specific environmental, economic, social, and cultural objectives. Activities forest managers employ include timber harvesting (typically for commercial purposes), vegetation thinning (clearing out small trees and brush, often through mechanical means or prescribed burns), and reforestation (planting new trees). Figure 5 describes specific activities that managers typically undertake to improve the health of forests. As discussed later, research has shown that these are the types of activities that are most effective at preserving and restoring the natural functions and processes of forests, and thereby maximizing the natural benefits that they can provide. Efforts to extinguish active wildfires are not generally considered to be forest management activities, as they are more responsive than proactive.”
However, the Democrats may be blaming “Mother Earth” because according to the report the cost of Good forest Management starts at 280 Million dollars.
