Brad Johnson notes at the Wonk Room that in his interview yesterday with with ABC, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA) talked of the impact of global warming on California’s wildfires. Climate change, he said, has created a constant threat of wildfires in California:
Through global warming, we have now fire season all year round. We used to have fire seasons only in the fall, but now the fire seasons start in February already, so this means that we have to really upgrade, have more resources, more fire engines, more manpower and all of this, which does cost extra money.
