President Donald Trump issued an executive order allowing agencies to do more to prevent massive wildfires.
He issued an executive order to allow for active management of forest and rangelands, including thinning and removing debris from millions of acres of federal lands.
Buy that’s way too sensible. Therefore, expect the leftists to go nuts about it. Wildfires have claimed more than 8.5 million acres just this year alone.

Western Republicans welcomed Trump’s order. GOP lawmakers said that a change in policies was sorely needed after the devastating 2018 wildfire season, which saw more than 8.5 million acres burned.
“While litigation activists thwarted forest management reforms, the Senate also failed to pass legislation to help minimize forest fires,” Utah GOP Rep. Rob Bishop, chairman of the House Committee on Natural Resources, said in a statement.
“As a result, parts of the West were left in ashes. We cannot ignore these systemic issues any longer,” Bishop said.
Trump issued the order one day after signing the $867 million farm bill that included provisions allowing foresters to more quickly remove dead and diseased trees that increased fire risks.
Environmentalists railed against Trump’s executive order, characterizing it as a “gift” to the logging industry that would do little to prevent wildfires.
“It won’t work, and we know that,” Denise Boggs with the group Conservation Congress told The Sacramento Bee. “All the fire ecologists are saying the same thing: You can’t log your way out of this situation.” More
Here’s proof that the left hates President Donald Trump in general. They want our forests to continue to have fuel to burn people and cities out of existence. The president signed an executive in order to increase thinning of forests and better management and leftist environmental are whining about it.
