We’ve seen our share of flaming-hot takes on the California fires, but we’d be doing all of you a disservice if we didn’t highlight this one from “Anchorman” director Adam McKay:
Fires in Southern California are beyond historic.
Hurricanes this year beyond historic. Flooding, drought, glaciers melting.
We need a WW2 level mobilization to combat global warming.

Beyond historic! WW2-level!
I'll never understand why we don't do a Manhattan Project on alternative energies and climate change. Oh wait, legacy corporations don't want it.

Watch Cowspiracy. What we eat affects the climate dramatically.

I would LOVE to see a movie about the environmental bubble bursting directed by you, much like The Big Short. Unfortunately… we'll probably all be dead.

We need a ruling party that believes in science.

Conservatives think it’s all because god is mad.

Or maybe they just believe that nature is infinitely more powerful than people are.
Because Fires in CA never happened before. (Laguna beach)
Oh look, I remember the same said about Katrina, then 8 years of nothing.
Things that have happened in cycles, no proof of the impact of man on said cycles. https://t.co/7eECfGjtdM

If you want to lay the blame where it actually belongs. Blame bad, widely discredited, forestry policies that haven't let these areas have a significant burn since Disneyland was an orange grove. Allowing underbrush and dead trees to become a tinderbox waiting for a spark.

What a dope.

All of that is false. Carry on now.

Wildfires in So-Cal have always happened ; just because it’s getting close to your house doesn’t make it historic.
This hurricane season is also not historic; not even in the top 15 of deadliest hurricane seasons of all time..
Congratulations, you’re a virtue signaling idiot
