    Default About Trumps strikingly ignorant tweet.

    The one blaming water use regulations and environmental protections for Californias wildfires. It looks like he’s having Ross weaken the endangered species act so as to allow more water diversion to agriculture instead of downriver for fisheries .

    Just two days after President Trump issued an utterly uninformed tweet about the causes of the California wildfires, his ulterior motives began to come into focus.
    That happened through an order issued Wednesday by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to the National Marine Fisheries Service and its parent agency, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Both fall under Ross’ jurisdiction.
    .
    .
    Ross’ statement made specific mention of the Mendocino Complex fire, which he noted “has developed into the largest in the state’s history, consuming nearly 300,000 acres in Northern California.” But the Mendocino Complex fire is immediately adjacent to Clear Lake, a major reservoir. Mohler said firefighters have been drawing water from Clear Lake without any limitations.
    .
    .
    “Secretary Ross’s directive is nothing more than a smokescreen designed to weaken these protections that NMFS’s scientists determined are necessary to keep these native fish from going extinct,” Kate Poole of the Natural Resources Defense Council said after the statement was issued. “It’s almost like the extinction of these creatures is their real goal, so that they no longer have to leave any water in rivers, but can divert it all to corporate agribusiness.”

    That thread title could be about a new topic about twice every week.

    The environment is a real problem for people. We need to get rid of it.

    "Strikingly ignorant" as opposed to his everyday, run of the mill ignorant tweets.
