Gov. Jerry Brown, noting the fast-spreading Bernardo Fire in San Diego, warned Tuesday that climate change will bring “a lot of unexpected catastrophes and disasters” such as wildfires.
“Fire season is starting much earlier and lasting much longer,” Brown said. “And citizens should take fire dangers very seriously.”
He urged people to leave their homes when asked, and to “be sensible.”
He said the climate is changing in ways “that will bring about more forest fires” and he recently signed a $640 million bill to deal with the drought.
