Ugh. The dreaded combination of very hot temperatures and seasonality (approaching the driest time of year) is leading to extreme fire conditions across northern and central CA. #cawx pic.twitter.com/5SSTVFhNew

The biggest new fire burning in California right now is so powerful it sent smoke 10 miles straight up into the stratosphere and created its own thunderstorms.
224 people were airlifted by the National Guard.
We are in a climate emergency. https://t.co/jWlt6YhBks

The climate crisis has led to:
❌ The strongest hurricane to hit Louisiana in 164 yrs
❌ California wildfires raging across 1 million+ acres
❌ Hurricanes pummeling the Midwest
❌ A storm leaving NY w/o electricity for a week
And that was just this month. https://t.co/DTNWnzSFmA
