Environmental Regulations Delay Project That Might Have Saved Lives

Why are people dying?  Because GOVERNMENT/DEMOCRATS are killing them.  It is policy that is making more homeless.  It is stringent policy on the environment that costs time, most and lives.

“Two years ago, Berry Creek was determined a high-risk fire area. An $836,365 grant was secured to cut back 120 acres of vegetation in the area and create fuel breaks to reduce fire danger. However, executive director of the Butte County Fire Safe Council, Calli-Jane DeAnda, told KRCR that the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) delayed this project.

After the Camp Fire, Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Yuba City) worked with the Butte County Fire Safe Council to craft legislation seeking to ease environmental restrictions to help make communities more fire safe. Both pieces of legislation seeking to streamline CEQA for fire protection (AB 431 and AB 2444) were denied a hearing at the State Capitol by Assembly Democrats. 

Stop LYING about climate change being the cause of these fires—it is government using CEQA and other anti-people regulations that caused the firs and kills people.  This fire is just one example of how NEWSOM was directly responsible for destruction and deaths—and refuses to accept responsibility for his LACK of actions.

Just two years after the Camp Fire claimed the lives of 85 people in Butte County, the North Complex Fire has swept through the town of Berry Creek killing at least 15 people and destroying approximately 3,000 structures.

Strict environmental regulations are delaying fuel reduction projects across the state. California must streamline the CEQA process so that towns such as Berry Creek, are better protected during wildfire season.

The North Complex West Zone Fire has killed a total of 15 people and is 34% contained as of Tuesday evening.

  1. I believe that fire is an approved method for destroying human habitat in furtherance of the goals of Agenda 21/2030 and the Wildlands Project.
