Governor Newsom: “We are in the midst of an existential climate crisis”
OROVILLE – Governor Gavin Newsom joined CALFIRE leadership in surveying recently burned areas of the North Complex fire today.
“I want to express my condolences to those who lost their lives, loved ones, or their homes during this deadly wildfire event,” said Governor Gavin Newsom. “California is in the midst of an existential climate crisis. It was just two years ago that this area saw the deadliest wildfire in our history. Now, just a few miles away, another deadly wildfire has ripped through these same communities. There is no doubt – climate change is here, and it is happening faster than most had anticipated.
“While California balances on a knife-edge when it comes to climate impact, our state is leading the world in turning our climate resolve into results. We aren’t just making bold promises – we are using our economic strength and innovation to lead the nation and the world towards a greener future. As the events of the last month have shown us, that work has to move faster, too.”
