"I don't think science knows."
US President Donald Trump has downplayed the impact of climate change on raging west coast wildfires, saying he doesn't think "science knows" and that it "will soon get cooler".

Plenty of aging narcissists have wanted the whole world to die with them. Not many have had as many willing accomplices as the GOP death cult.
Science knows. https://t.co/Pwx8meY4zw

I reject the idea that when the President goes west and says “it will get cooler” with a smirk on his face that we are supposed to be like “well that’s Trump, that rascal.”

This type of action increases the risk of injury to everyone at one of these roadblocks. We have had extra deputies patrolling Corbett all day and will through the rest of the weekend. Please report suspicious activity to us and do not take action yourselves.

Let me say this as plainly as possible:
We have become so politically polarized, & consume so much misinformation and fear-mongering from social media, that people are literally defying wildfire evacuation orders because they want to beat up fake looters. https://t.co/CkoOt6jiqa pic.twitter.com/lZcx7J7WuY

To be fair these guys ALSO want to wage war against the Bureau of Land Management. https://t.co/wwMl3C0YnJ

In January, Kate Brown proposed a wildfire management plan that would treat over 300K acres to prevent wildfire, mandate defensible space around homes, and update building codes.

Tucker is so skilled at being a white nationalist that he somehow finds a way to make a segment about wildfires & climate change incredibly racist. https://t.co/61rzAyA1PM

Trump comments like these are important for the historical record, because if the science is remotely correct there's going to be a massive effort to retcon this period as "Of course everyone wanted to deal with climate change, the far left just wouldn't agree to a carbon tax" https://t.co/Nvn9JRaYqV
