Gov. Gavin Newsom revisits Butte County after meeting with President Trump

Gov. Gavin Newsom revisits Butte County after meeting with President Trump

Biden, speaking at his own campaign event on the opposite coast, said Trump's re-election would be catastrophic for the environment.

Trump on his arrival also repeated his argument that the wildfires are due to poor maintenance of forest areas, making them more combustible.

In Washington state, a prescribed burning program hasn't yet begun on state lands, said Department of Natural Resources spokesman Thomas Kyle-Milward. Without mentioning large wildfires that have raged elsewhere around the world in recent years - from southern Europe to Australia and Siberia - Trump asserted that other countries "don't have this problem".

Almost 90 wildfires continue to ravage the West Coast, where over 5 million acres have already been scorched.

"That's what's standing out - there just isn't a place in OR right now to find fresh air", Darling said.

Trump said improved forest management was something that could be tackled quickly, whereas climate change would take more time and require worldwide cooperation that he said was lacking.

Joe Biden branded President Donald Trump a "climate arsonist" on Monday for refusing to acknowledge global warming's role in deadly wildfires sweeping the western United States, while Trump blamed lax forestry and declared, "I don't think science knows".

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will deliver remarks regarding the fires and his campaign's environmental policy from his home state of DE this afternoon.

"Maybe there is a parallel universe where a pot on the stove with the burner turned to high 'starts getting cooler.' But that is not our universe", said Stanford University climate scientist Chris Field.

"We come from a perspective, humbly, where we submit the science is in and observed evidence is self-evident: that climate change is real, and that is exacerbating this", the Democratic governor said during a meeting with the president.

Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris is set to tour the damage Tuesday.

Arsenal captain Aubameyang announces new deal on live video
Runarsson, who now plies his trade in France, had a mixed season last term with Dijon, only making 11 Ligue 1 appearances. Aubameyang scored in Arsenal's victory at Fulham on Saturday, the first game of the new Premier League season.

The governor also pushed back on Trump's perspective that climate change is not the primary cause of fires. Firefighters, he says, who have decades of experience, have told him that the rules of fighting fires have changed because the climate has changed.

Twenty-seven of the at least 35 people killed by the blazes since the beginning of summer died last week.

During an interview with "Fox & Friends" hosts on Fox News on Tuesday, Trump doubled down on his climate change denial, putting blame once again on the Golden State for the wildfires that were happening there. She and others who have evacuated still have their cars packed, ready to make an escape at a moment's notice, she said.

Oregon's Department of Environmental Quality has extended an air quality alert to Thursday after it was to initially expire on Monday, the same day local news outlet KATU cited information provided by the Oregon Health Authority in reporting approximately 10% of the people who visited emergency rooms were exhibiting symptoms similar to those of someone suffering from asthma.

Most of the fatalities have occurred in California and OR, with emergency services in the two states recording 26 deaths.

More than 30,000 firefighters are battling the blazes, with wind gusts and drier weather on Monday threatening more destructions.

"There are still active fires, power lines are down, trees are down, there are roads that are impassable", said Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea, warning evacuees it could take "weeks and weeks" to return to their homes.

Paul Clement described to AFP how he fled his home in Berry Creek.

Luckily, Washington state has not been impacted as hard as neighboring OR, and Gov. Inslee said some resources have been freed up to help other states as the fires in Washington are better contained.

"Please respect, and I know you do, the difference of opinion out here as it relates to this fundamental issue.of climate change".
