    Amazing that no-one in charge in CA considers the climate change consequences of forest fires, and takes appropriate action. Just another reason why it’s hard to take them seriously.

    Let’s get to the root issue. The climate is warming up and that’s a fact, but that’s not the priority, at least right now. “Climate Change” is a tool used to round up the cattle more easily so we can ultimately control minds and make them conform. We will educate our youth on why we need to protect our rural lands and ‘save our climate’ then we will tell them that the best way to protect our rural lands is to remove the human footprint. So, we train our kids to think that living in highly concentrated urban areas aka “Pods” is super cool. They can ride bikes or take high speed trains to visit the ‘Rural Lands’ while we can destroy the humans who refuse to conform. Look at the UN’s corridor map of agenda 50 – especially in rural northern Ca. – where those PG & E wildfires keep happening.

    I assume all these Little Geniuses that are skipping class all have
    an A+ score for there grades………..

    Apparently, these overpaid teaching professionals, think protesting
    is a good learning experience, I guess they may be correct if you’re trying
    to indoctrinate kids for your agenda !!

    Shameful….to say the least.
