The stupidity factor can go up to eleven!
Maybe they should have raked more then they would have done everything Trump suggested.
Oh stop please. This is either willful stupidity, or Trumpian level of cynical indifference to facts, either way it’s propaganda in the service of re-electing the most destructive administration ever.
What kind of stupidity is this? Is Ramirez channeling Payne again?
Um, mramirez, this makes no sense at all.
Here, in a valley of the California Sonoran desert, we sailed right through a heat wave that saw the temperature in my shaded car port hit 117 degrees, helped in no small part by renewable energy sources like the wind turbine farms to the east of us.
So climate change which Trump called a “Chinese Hoax” isn’t the problem, but policies to reduce climate change are? It was 120 degrees in Los Angeles last week.
It amuses me that on GoComics, the Ramirez comic is just above the Reality Check comic (sometimes), totally appropriate.
It is a shame that so many ignorant people will believe this nonsense.
Sr. Ramirez be like: Distract. Look over there. Don’t look at the Woodward tapes. In short, emulate DJT and lie at every occasion. Bigly.
Republicans totally ignore global warming as well as covid. Kick them all out in November.
Once again, Mr. Ramirez, you demonstrate your mastery of the non sequitur.
Should be better controlled as look at all the help Trump is giving him! /S
The wildfires in California are so bad because of the climate crisis which can be alleviated by switching to green energy.
Suggesting that green energy is to blame for climate change events is criminal. What a d.ck.
This is despicable Ramirez. You are attempting to politicize and environmental and human disaster in one of the states of this union in an attempt to make the party that you worship look good. It is the responsibility of the party worship that we are in this climate mess. It is obvious that you worship the party of blame, not the party of can-do.
On behalf of Albertans.. we would be glad to sell you some dirty oil as a fail safe backup for unfortunate incidents like this.
Please check facts. Always.
Again, Ramirez is extremely, extremely lazy, intellectually
More absolutist thinking from Ramirez. Only one course of action is correct, never mind the curve balls reality throws at us.
I am eagerly anticipating your cartoon on trump lying to the public for the last 8 months about the virus.
Totally partisan Trump hates California because they voted blue and is refusing aid to them.
Since covid has ravaged California’s prisons, they are lacking prison labor to fight the fires, another fine gift from our republican admin.
Watch how FEMA responds to the damage in the Left Coast. The irony, most of the rural areas burned are Trump country. He’ll eat his own voters to own the libs.
Great ready for the Green New Deal from the revolutionary Progressive-Left, folks! Make sure you stock up on candles and matches, too.
Let’s talk about THE ORANGE FOG’S contributions to climate change which has been a very large factor in the California and west coast fires… silence? not a surprise.
The volume on the Fox News broadcast about Woodward’s book has been TURNED UP. Did you hear that ? The lack of GOP response has been ‘deafening’ so I understand how Michael may not have heard anything yet.
A 12 for irrelevancy.
I live in California and have every day of my 60 years. How many of You currently live in areas of Cali. that are burning or have burnt ? I haven’t seen anything like this. My Wife is heading to a Doctor right now with a ear infection I think was caused by the smoke & heat. We are in deep kimchi until we get rain with power outages, smoke and fire and riots. The election should be interesting with 40 million people hanging on by a hair. If I believed in it I would ask for prayer.
I guess California didn’t rake the forests?
Trump 4 more years
For the last 20-30 years more and more land management experts have been casting doubt on the century old practice of trying to extinguish every fire. Wildfires are a part of nature. A part of the cycle of renewal. After the fire passes growth explodes and the land recovers.
When we extinguish the fires we leave the fuel for future fires in place, with more and more accumulating every year. In addition, many areas of California are subject to environmental rules that prohibit the removal of undergrowth and deadwood. Usually to protect a specific species.
Most of the areas currently burning have not seen a fire for 50, 60, even 70 years. So when they burn, they burn hot and hard.
We need to change our basic strategy on fires. It will be ugly for a while until nature restores its own balance. We can help it along with a more aggressive use of small controlled burns spread across a wide area. Those smaller burned areas act as natural firebreaks, limiting the size and number of these huge fires.
The best thing we can do for the environment, long term, is to let them burn. And in the future, take a much more pro-active stance instead of reactive. Allow land owners to clear the surface near residences and other buildings.
Of course we need to keep restrictions in place on when and where you can light a fire. Keep up the public education efforts to reduce the human stupidity. And yes, fight the fires that threaten occupied areas to reduce loss of life and property. Remember, human caused fires are not natural, but in many cases they spread as they do because we extinguished the local natural fires that would have reduced the available fuel.
Renewable energy production is increasing annually. Eventually the oil companies won’t even have enough money to buy politicians.
Mike Ramirez continues his quest to be the dumbest guy on the internet.
I’ll type slowly for you, Mike…
The climate crisis CAUSES an INCREASE in natural disasters!
Sad. All that talent pissed away drawing this utter trash.
They should have raked the leaves like Trump suggested…
Occasionally I think Ramirez is so stupid, he doesn’t know he is stupid. Maybe he is F#&king with us to gauge our response.
Wow – so this is where the hate addicts hang out: in the comment section of Michael Ramirez!
Night Gaunt: I guess you can see this comment but I can’t see yours. Hope you are staying safe during the pandemic.
