Fires this spring will exhibit behavior seen more typically in fall.  Expect fires to grow rapidly in continuous fuels, even during weather conditions not normally associated with fire growth. More fires will also be possible in alpine areas as melt out will be much earlier than average this year

The National Interagency Fire Center - May seasonal outlook


This is really happening.  This already looks to be the worst fire season in California State history, it has already been the worst drought in state history.  These things ARE absolutely CAUSED by global warming.


"The fire was just incredible. It was beyond anything you've ever seen before,"

source: CNN - 9 wildfires spring up around San Diego, more than 9,000 acres burned
The remaining outlook is only worse, until at least through the end of the fire season.

We have one choice and two options

1.  hide and wait for the end


by: William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

 I HEAR the Shadowy Horses, their long manes a-shake,
Their hoofs heavy with tumult, their eyes glimmering white;
The North unfolds above them clinging, creeping night,
The East her hidden joy before the morning break,
The West weeps in pale dew and sighs passing away,
The South is pouring down roses of crimson fire:

O vanity of Sleep, Hope, Dream, endless Desire,
The Horses of Disaster plunge in the heavy clay:
Beloved, let your eyes half close, and your heart beat
Over my heart, and your hair fall over my breast,
Drowning love's lonely hour in deep twilight of rest,
And hiding their tossing manes and their tumultuous feet.


2.  get up and fight for the future of our children

A different future IS possible

We simply have to turn THESE FUCKERS out on their ears.  Every one of their talking points is a baldfaced lie, they are lying to kill their own children and grandchildren because they are PAID to lie.  They have been paid to lie for so long now that they no longer have the ability to determine what is true and what is a lie.  They simply DO NOT CARE.

and that not caring. . .when it really is your own children on the line?  that not caring is BY DEFINITION sociopathy.



All we need to do is make U.S. CO2 and Methane emissions reduction a national security priority.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
