California wildfires have destroyed around 100,000 acres of area and forced thousands to leave their homes and now President Donald Trump has warned to stop the federal funding for the deadly wildfires that swept through the huge swaths of California.
US President has accused Governor Gavin Newsom of doing the ‘terrible job in forest management’. A series of wildfires this year have also burnt the un-forested areas. Mr. Trump said that every year fires erupt and California burns, describing the situation the same thing, and governor come for federal aid. He tweeted that no more aid will be provided. In response, Mr. Newsom said that as you don’t believe in climate change so you exempted from this discussion.
A recent study issued in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences clarified that global warming has increased the temperatures which caused huge wildfire in California. Vegetation has become more flammable as they dry out in warm conditions. President Trump also gave the same warning to pull federal aid last year when the most deadly fire in the state’s history took 86 lives.
Firefighters are battling with the deadly California wildfires. They have contained half of the Maria Fire, the major blaze, in the southern part of the state. According to Ventura County Fire Department, more than 9,400 acres areas have burnt in the fire that erupted on Thursday. On the other hand, 76% of the largest fire, the Kincade Fire in Sonoma County, has now contained. However, it had affected 80,000 acres since it started on 23 October.
