Trump baselessly questions climate science during California wildfire briefing

Facebook removing posts linking Oregon blazes to extremist groups

Biden was referring to Trump's focus on suburban voters and his charge that the former vice president would bring chaos to their communities by changing policy on low-income housing.

US President Donald Trump is scheduled to travel to California and meet with officials on Monday.

Mr Trump later suggested that global warming will reverse itself, saying the climate will "start getting cooler".

"We come from a perspective humbly where we submit the science is in and observed evidence is self-evident: that climate change is real, and that is exacerbating this", the Democratic governor said during a meeting with the president.

"This is climate change, and this is an administration that's put its head in the sand", Garcetti said.

He told Wade Crowfoot, secretary of California's Natural Resources Agency: "It'll start getting cooler".

The official responded: "I wish science agreed with you".

Biden, slammed by Republicans for not visiting disaster areas, spoke from his home state of DE on the threat of extreme weather that climate scientists have said is supercharging fires.

"If you give a climate arsonist four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised if we have more of America ablaze?" he said in a speech in Wilmington, Delaware. After the publication of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report concluded climate change would hurt the economy, Trump said he read it but didn't believe it.

"There has to be strong forest management", he said.

"When trees fall down after a short period of time, they become very dry - really like a matchstick. and they can explode", Trump said. "But then you pull up, and the devastation of just every home".

"We're concerned that the incoming front is not going to provide a lot of rain here in the Medford region and it's going to bring increased winds", Bureau of Land Management spokesperson Kyle Sullivan told Reuters in a telephone interview on Sunday. "They don't have problems like this".

But he said global warming was driving fires, reminding Trump that 57 percent of forests in the state were under federal management.

The trial transfixed the nation and sparked a conversation meant to undermine the US government. Many arrests had been made, with police utilizing tear gasoline and batons on the crowds.

An analysis out in August from Stanford climate and wildfire researcher Michael Goss and others found that a almost 2-degree (1 Celsius) rise in autumn temperatures and 30 percent drop in rainfall has more than doubled the number of autumn days with extreme fire weather over the past 40 years.

He recently called the threat of climate change "undeniable" and "existential".

Biden, in his remarks, said Trump's hostility to climate science reflect a president who "won't listen to the experts or treat this disaster with the urgency it demands, as any president should do during a national emergency". Trump has characterized such measures as the agenda of the far left, and out of synch with American attitudes about energy.

But as the wildfires rage, some climate activists have expressed frustration that Biden has not been more forceful on the issue.

More than 4,000 homes and other structures have been incinerated in the state alone over the past three weeks.

The biggest and most consequential dispute is over the state's ability to set its own vehicle emissions standards.

The disaster and new national attention on climate change could be creating another hard moment for a president facing multiple challenges, including the coronavirus pandemic, joblessness and social unrest.

Biden, who is to give his climate speech in DE on Monday, released a $2 trillion plan in July to boost investment in clean energy and stop all climate-damaging emissions from US power plants by 2035.

Trump's administration has waged a series of legal battles with Democratic-run California, the most-populous USA state, on a variety of issues including immigration and environmental policy.

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.

Trump, who has authorized federal disaster aid for both California and OR, questioned that science. On that call, I declared it a national emergency.

"I got a call from your governor immediately. That's a nasty question".
