This shit has been going on every summer for the last six to eight years. Environmental terrorism?

The new state song should be "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes".

Um. Fires in California have been going on every summer for the last millennia and beyond. They're just getting worse.

It's all good, though, it's just a natural cycle. Nothing to do with extremifying drought conditions brought on by human-accelerated climate change. Nothing to worry about here. Move on.

Poor Mama Cass, if only she'd passed on that ham sandwich.

Yes, the smoke is pretty bad at times. It's more of a problem in the Central Valley, but even San Francisco gets quite a bit of it. Can't be good to be breathing that for weeks on end.

I lived in NorCal for many, many years, and never once remember smoke in the air at all, much less like this. The first time I experienced it was when I went to SoCal for five years, and then, only once bad and one other time light.

Grew up in Santa Barbara. Lived thru many fires. Worst one was the Painted Cave fire about 26, maybe 27 years ago? 800+ homes incinerated in one night.

Congratulations on finally seeing the FAKE hoax promoted by the Liberal media. I'm glad you're seeing through their bullshit. It's a first good step.

I think there are twelve step groups for people recovering from Gore induced Global Warming Paranoia.

One might think that 7,600,000,000 clever apes could have an effect on their habitat.

85% of all California wildfires are set by humans, usually intentionally (70%). The rest are usually accidental like a power line toppling and starting a fire or a rare lightning strike. Global warming hasn’t been listed as a single cause for a fire.
Try again, n00b!

Somewhat unbiased reporting from both liberal and conservative rags cite three causes:

1. Folks populating areas closer to forests due to cheaper RE. (Thanks, Fed!)

2. Fire control policies which limit nature's way of clearing deadwood and brush through smaller fires.

3. Climate change.

4. Excess matchboxes due to a reduction in smoking. Thanks doc!!!

Most of California’s landscape is supposed to burn, it’s how a lot of the plants have evolved reproduce. At one point we use to just let the fires burn from the mountains all the way down to the ocean but now there are houses everywhere and we have about a century’s worth of fuel built up. Now when there is a fire it’s so hot that plants seeds are destroyed and land is left bare. Sprawl is the problem with our fires not climate change.

The air quality in SF has actually been stellar despite the fires. Hardly any smoke due to lots of wind. Also the biggest contiguous chunk of pollution comes from China.

Agreed. Also arson. Main cause of fires.
