Trump visits California, Biden talks climate change as wildfires take campaign focus

Scorched Volunteer firefighters survey the damage in Berry Creek California

The Trump meeting, which will include state and federal fire officials, will be at McClellan Park, a former Air Force based turned business park that is used by Cal Fire to organize wildfire response efforts. According to the text of Assembly Bill 2147, an estimated 3,700 people are now working throughout the state as part of the California Conservation Camp Program. "This is the ideal storm", California Governor Gavin Newsom said.

Trump plans to meet with the heads of California's emergency services, battling fires that have scorched more than 3.2 million acres in the state this year - an annual record, with almost four months of fire season still to come.

There were 38 actives fires burning in OR as of yesterday morning.

The province is on alert against possible wildfires in its southern part.

In Estacada, a rural OR town just miles from the fire line that was deserted earlier this week, some inhabitants had returned from evacuation Saturday and patrolled the streets with guns for fear of looting, according to an AFP reporter.

The Democratic governors say the fires are a outcome of climate change, while the Trump administration has blamed poor forest management for the flames that have raced through the region and made the air in places like Portland, Oregon, Seattle and San Francisco some of the worst in the world.

Crews resumed searching for the dead yesterday among blackened ruins left by wildfires raging in three western USA states, where millions of hectares have burned in weeks and dozens have been killed. "Climate change isn't something that is going to happen in the future".

The former vice president has proposed a sweeping proposal that calls for the United States to achieve a carbon-free power sector by 2035 and make a $2 trillion investment over his first four years in office in green energy and infrastructure to combat the threat of climate change.

He noted that the mailer directs people to a website where they can click through to their state's election information. Washingtonians do not need to request a mail or absentee ballot, despite a "plan ahead" postcard by the U.S.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown on Friday amended Thursday's statement by OEM that said a half-million people throughout the state had been ordered to evacuate.

"It's apocalyptic", Washington state Governor Jay Inslee told ABC's "This Week".

Forest management, which includes tree thinning and brush clearing, is costly, labour-intensive work that is effective in reducing fuel for wildfires. "Please remember the words... very simple: forest management".

He has said that western governors bear some of the blame for intense fire seasons in recent years, alleging that they have engaged in poor forest management.

Strong winds have led authorities to issue "red flag" warnings across the American West as dozens of wildfires continue to rage.

The smoke and ash from the fires has created some of the world's worst air-quality levels and has driven residents indoors.

"The thought here is that it should clear out today", he said. In a news release Saturday, State Police Superintendent Travis Hampton said only that a leadership change was needed to face the "unprecedented crisis" posed by the wildfires burning across the state. Officials have said more people are missing from other blazes and the number of fatalities is likely to rise.
