Why is California so vulnerable to wildfires?

2018: more than 6700 km2 of land burned. 2019: Already more than 200,000 people evacuated. California is burning, just like every year. Here is why this US state is so vulnerable to wildfires.

    How do these fires start, literally every year...? Lightning ? Spontaneous combustion?

    This is all part of a plan. California hasn't been managing their forests correctly for years. They want the forests to burn so people will move to the cities where they can easily be controlled. When free healthcare happens everyone will be micro chipped.

    No wild grazers being chased by predators. Grass dies and easily ignited.

    Because Trump cut their funding for violating the immigrant laws by allowing sanctuary cites. So by burning their districts they get emergency FEMA funds and spend that on helping themselves to luxuries...

    Piss poor human habitat management, blame the tree huggers for this situation. You get the results of what you sew. Need to allow forest service to manage underbrush and scrub brush. Fire admin managers, libtards.

    Increased human habitation is one of the main cause of this present California burning so a strict restrictions/law banning to construct buildings in the forests will be made to save forests and all of its habitants ...

    Another big reason these wild fires are starting because of PG&E infrastructure. I live in California close to some of these fires and what we are experiencing is power shut offs to prevent wildfires because PG&E was and is responsible for some of these wildfires with poor power line infrastructure. The company is bankrupt and can’t afford to risk wildfires so they shut off power to the people which is not the way to do it. They need to fix their power lines and be prepared for the wind and dry season. Yes, Brut nature, other reasons are valid but trees are falling down due to the wind and hitting power lines and starting fires. Not all fires are caused by this but that is one of the latest fires that started. It’s definitely horrible every year we have to experience wildfires, breathe that smoke in, and people and animals die.

    So partly over population then, a problem that very few people seem to worry about now we have a more of an issue for me than *maybe* warmer Summers.

    Why don’t they put water pipe lines all through the state?
