Used to climate skeptics, Donald Trump assured Monday that the climate would eventually “cool down” during a briefing in California on the fires that have ravaged the west coast for more than a week.
“It will eventually cool,” assured Monday, September 14 Donald Trump, referring to the issue of climate change, during a briefing in California on the fires that ravage the west coast for over a week. “I don’t think science really knows,” added the Republican candidate, who regularly makes climate skepticism.
“This does not cool down in truth Mr. President #realclimate change”, reacted on Twitter Wade Crowfoot, A local official with the California Natural Resources Agency, accompanying his post with a graphic of rising temperatures in California.
“The observed evidence speaks for itself: climate change is real and it worsens” fires, also insisted Gavin Newsom, the governor of California.
Dozens of blazes devastate the west coast of the United States for days. They have already killed at least 35 people since the start of the summer, including 27 this week alone in the three states of Washington, Oregon and California.
The fires that are increasing across the globe are associated with various phenomena anticipated by scientists due to global warming. The increase in temperature, the increase in heat waves and the drop in precipitation in places is therefore an ideal combination for the development of fires.
