California's wildfires are self-caused. Steve Malloy writes:

California has now been in a drought for several years, a period which has turned the state’s forests into tinder boxes. Based on the state’s natural history alone, California could be in a drought for a very long time, which means California could burn until there is nothing left to burn.

It is beyond obvious that California and U.S. emissions cuts have are having no impact whatsoever on California’s drought-prone nature. So regardless of whether one believes in the man-made global warming apocalypse or not, meaningful forest management must begin now. But that is not possible with the NEPA process abusers.

President Trump proposed administrative changes to NEPA this year to streamline approvals. But California and its green allies are fighting these sensible proposals with lawsuits. The state filed its lawsuit just two weeks ago.
