“We’re fighting nature with the amount of material we’re putting in the environment, and that material traps heat, and the heat fosters fires, and the fires keep burning,” he said.
The governor added that “since civilization emerged 10,000 years ago, we haven’t had this kind of heat condition, and it’s going to continue getting worse and that’s the way it is.”
“Some people don’t want to accept that, some just outright deny it,” Brown continued. “I don’t say it with any great joy here – we’re in for a very rough ride. It’s going to get expensive. It’s going to get dangerous, and we have to apply all our creativity to make the best of what is going to be an increasingly bad situation, not just for California, but for people all over America and all over the world.”
Brown said the state’s budget would also have to figure in the cost of increased fire fury in the upcoming years. “So far, this fire activity is a small part of our very large budget, but it is growing and it will continue to grow as we adapt to the changing weather,” he said.
The governor said that steps to combat global warming can still, eventually, “shift the weather back to where it historically was.”
So the heat is worse than when civilization began according to Gov Jerry Brown, So I guess he believes California was uncivilized before 2007, cause 2006,2005,2003 maxes all look warmer to anyone that bothers looking More climate ambulance chasing, more weaponizing weather pic.twitter.com/jRc7drVNqp
