What Newsom’s saying: “We obviously feel very strongly that the hots are getting hotter, the dries are getting dryer. When we’re having heat domes, the likes of which we’ve never seen in our history, the hottest August ever in the history of this state, the ferocity of these fires, the drought five-plus years, losing 163 million trees to that drought, something’s happened to the plumbing of the world.”

“And we come from a perspective, humbly, where we submit the science and observed evidence is self-evident that climate change is real and that is exacerbating this.”

“There’s no question when you look past this decade and looking past almost the thousand-plus years that we have not done justice on our forest management. I don’t think anyone disputes that.”

Trump later said, “It’ll start getting cooler. You just watch.”
