#2 Logging out of dead and diseased trees is effective but opposed by 'huggers. Controlled burns as well

My dog interprets that 'whistle' as "more government planning and control".

#4 A few years ago when there were fires rampant around the Tahoe and Plumas County area, a guy who worked for the U.S. Forest Service said basically the same thing as Trump has recently said, i.e. the fires are a forest management problem. The problem has gone on because of the environmentalists railing against forest management (controlled burns, etc.).

Obama sits with his head in his hands. Another missed gummit land expansion opportunity.

Talk about a dog whistle. The above statement is a dog whistle of a dog whistle.

#7 New York Times telling California we don't have enough housing? They want the whole state to look like the Bronx? They can go to hell.

#8 California should be burying the power lines through these heavily wooded areas (everywhere actually but...) as they do in the wealthy areas. Should have done this sort of thing back in the 90s when the state was overflowing with cash.

#9 That California needs more dykes?

I hope Miss Koldon is better at fire science than writing; or are we an associate professor because we spew the global warming crap.

The Dutch don't fight the ocean? done right there.

#11 "A Capitol notion, to whelp,
For Nature herself needs our help!"
And the poor and the rich:
"Run, pups, scratch their itch!"
More pressure. A whistle. A yelp.
