This is heartbreaking! Sending lots of love and prayers to all the men and women Fire Fighters out there putting their lives on the line to save the rest of us! This season of “megafires” should teach us all a valuable lesson... We MUST do our part to combat climate change! Does ANYONE else think it’s batshit crazy that it’s December and, here in California, it’s upwards of 70 degrees outside? This is not normal. We are fucking destroying this beautiful planet and some of you run around with your heads in the proverbial sand as if you have no fucking clue why...?....I don’t get you. Science is real, your beliefs are not. Wake up and start doing your part cause the rest of us are struggling over here to save this planet for all of humanity! 🙏✊🕊🌎🔥🚫#PrayForTheSafetyOfTheseBraveSouls #NoMegafires #TheTimeIsNow #ClimateChangeIsReal #MotherEarth #SaveThePlanet #NoPlanetB #ScienceIsReal #NoAlternativeFacts #JustScience #WakeUp #DoYourPart
Photo by @FransLanting “California Burning” One of the largest wildfires in California’s history is raging through the rugged coastal mountains near Santa Barbara. The other night the hills looked like a scene from the apocalypse as the flames were encroaching upon scores of homes on the outskirts of town. Thousands of firefighters from all over the American West are combating the blaze in a massive operation that is as impressive as the fire itself. California is used to wildfires, but the ferocity and the magnitude of recent outbreaks is rattling people. These are megafires. Governor Jerry Brown calls them part of the “New Normal,” as the state is adapting to the consequences of climate change. Our local firefighters are heroes when it comes to battling the flames, but we need a global force to address the root causes of the inferno that will impact all of us.
