Panetta on Wildfires: Trump’s Making up His Own Reality When Ignores Climate Change as the Cause

‘I think he owes it to the people to pay attention to the truth and not make up his own reality’

EXCERPT:

PANETTA: "Well, again, it’s just another indication this president doesn’t want to hear the truth and doesn’t want to pay attention to the facts. He lives in his own world and he makes his own conclusions regardless of what the facts are, regardless of what reality is. We know the situation in California very well. We know the impact that climate change has had here. We’ve been in a drought. It’s created tremendous fuel. The winds combined with the fuel have resulted in these wildfires, what Jerry Brown has called 'the new abnormal.' I think this president owes it not just to the people of California, but to the people of the country to pay attention to the truth and not make up his own reality."
