== Former California Governor Jerry Brown mocked the idea of leaving California in an interview published by the New York Times on Monday, saying that the problems of climate change were global and could not be avoided.
Brown, 82, left office in 2019 after his fourth term. He made climate change his focus throughout his last two terms, often making alarmist claims — such as falsely claiming the ocean would flood LAX, or blaming climate change for wildfires.
From his family ranch, Brown spoke with the Times:
“You might say, ‘We are getting out of here — we are going someplace else,’” Mr. Brown, 82, said. “No. There are going to be problems everywhere in the United States. This is the new normal. It’s been predicted and it’s happening. This is part of the new long-term experience.”
“Tell me: Where are you going to go?” Mr. Brown continued. “What’s your alternative? Maybe Canada. You’re going to go to places like Iowa, where you have intensifying tornadoes? The fact is, we have a global crisis that has been mounting and the scientists have been telling us about. For the most part, it’s been ignored. Now we have a graphic example.”
Scientists have warned that climate change could lead to longer fire seasons, but also say that the major factor in recent forest has been the overabundance of fuel, the result of a century of poor forest management. ==
