Global warming will reverse itself - Trump tells California officials

Two firefighters in protective clothing clear debris from the wreckage of a smouldering building

Furnace Creek in Death Valley recorded a temperature of 54.4C last month, a sign of the impact climate change is having on California.

Trump also continued to downplay the role of climate change in the West's horrific wildfire season. He said that if voters give "a climate denier" and "climate arsonist" another four years in the White House, "why would we be surprised that we have more of America ablaze?"

Trump, who was briefed during a stop near Sacramento before a campaign visit to Phoenix, had been mostly quiet as the catastrophe on the West Coast has unfolded over the past few weeks.

Three million acres of land have been burned in the state, according to the state's Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

"So if you do have a fire and it gets away, you'll have a 50 yard cut in between". "It'll start getting cooler, you just watch", he said.

He contended anew that Democratic state leaders are to blame for failing to rake leaves and clear dead timber from forest floors. Improving weather conditions had helped them gain a measure of containment over most of the blazes.

"So we're essentially growing the fire ourselves on goal in order to tie in some of those fire lines we have cut and then burning back toward the fire itself", he said, "just to put black ground in there to make sure that the fire doesn't have any fuel to continue burning".

"We've done a lot of good work on the fire, and we feel really good about the way we've gotten it to the point we've gotten it right now", Carhart said. "So they have to do something about it".

His Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, made a speech in DE in which he declared the fires and recent extreme weather underscore an urgent need to address climate change.

"When you get into climate change, well is India going to change its ways?"

University of Colorado fire scientist Jennifer Balch called Trump's deflecting blame on forest managers "infuriating". "Please remember the words, very simple, forest management". "There's no way we're going to log our way out of this fire problem".

Thiem, Zverev reach final after contrasting victories
Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev are set to clash in the final of the US Open 2020 men's singles. Whilst Zverev is making his debut at this stage of a slam, the same can not be said for Thiem.

Throughout his first term in office, Trump has rolled back a slate of Obama-era environmental regulations, including ones that placed emissions-standards on American-made cars and the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan, which would have limited carbon emissions from coal and gas-fired power plants, and withdrew the United States from the landmark Paris Climate Agreement.

To that end, Biden in his address did not wade into political and policy disagreements among Democrats, progressive activists and even some Republicans who acknowledge the climate crisis. There are more than 6.5 million confirmed cases in the U.S.

Speaking in Wilmington, Delaware, on Monday, Biden said Trump's "climate denial may not have caused these fires and hurricanes".

"I don't think science knows, actually", Trump said at a Monday briefing with officials in McClellan Park, California, with a laugh. Most of the largest firefighting aircraft have not been utilized in recent days due to heavy smoke limiting visibility.

There were 34 active fires burning in OR as of Sunday morning, according to the state's Office of Emergency Management website.

In 2015, Trump stated bluntly: "I'm not a believer in global warming, I'm not a believer in man-made global warming".

He said forest management changes were something that could be tackled quickly, whereas climate change would take more time.

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti accused Mr Trump of perpetuating a lie that only forest management can curtail the massive fires seen in recent years.

Firefighters were nervously monitoring the weather for an anticipated pattern shift that could cause an uptick in fire activity.

Search-and-rescue teams went through gutted homes in more than half a dozen OR communities looking for human remains after state officials said they expected "mass casualty incidents".

In the small southern OR town of Talent, Dave Monroe came back to his burned home, partly hoping he'd find his three cats.
