  1. I’ll betcha all those interlocking but competing Fed bureaucracies even take polls and convene focus groups before they make a move to deal with the fires.
    “We should put out our fire, but what if we take resources from that other agency’s fire. Will we look selfish?”
    “If we act vigorously to put out the fire, will the Sierra Club accuse us of changing natural wildlife habitat management? Better have a meeting with them first.”
    “If we let it burn for a bit to get bigger, can we get more money in next yer’s budget to handle bigger fires?”

    In my single days, I had two roommates who worked for Federal agencies in DC, and they told me stories of those sorts of thought processes.

  3. Somebody please explain to Newsom that a reason is not necessarily an excuse, even in politics.

  4. Reasonable person: Okay, climate change is a problem, and it makes wild fires worse. What can we do to mitigate the problem?

    Unreasonable person (AKA: Leftist) We should stop clearing fire roads and allow forests to grow uncontrolled.

    Reasonable person: But, if climate change is making the problem worse, how would this course of action help alleviate things?

    Unreasonable person: Why do you hate science?

    Reasonable person: Say what?
