"I was like, OMG, when I was driving and I couldn't even see in front of me."
Wildfires are devastating yet another vast area of California.
Extraordinary image of the California wildfires from @abc7chriscristi.
Imagine this behind your house.

#USA politicians support #Israel not out of allegiance or the power of lobbyists. Aspects of this support include:

1. Annual >$3b aid packages, with regular supplements & fewer restrictions than aid to other nations
2. Support of governments #Israel likes, such as #Jordan #KSA
#Egypt, regardless of #humanrights abuses
3. Undermining/attacking governments, groups & nations it dislikes: #Iraq #Iran #Lebanon
4. Ignoring obligations to #Palestinians under intl law
5. Allowing "charities" to receive tax-deductible donations used to further #ethniccleansing
in #Palestine.
6. Various state & federal government agencies with preferences to #Israel, such as #police exchanges & subsidized trade delegations.
7. Voting for legislation punishing people who support #BDS, a non-violent advocacy tactic.

Whatever it is that causes #USA

So much for the @facebook crack down on #hatespeech and #fakenews Video claiming Paradise burned because they were 100% @realDonaldTrump supporting white supremacists has almost 1 million views. 80 people dead, 800+ missing #CaliforniaWildfires #Facebook $FB
Many have reported the video and nothing has been done. Please take a moment to report it as 44k are currently displaced and thousands of family members still don’t know where their loved ones are. Maybe @chuckschumer can call his buddies? $FB…
It just proves exactly what know #Facebook discriminates against Conservatives and obviously feels this video being shared over 33k Times is justified.

Another vital essay from @SDFirewolf of @DisVisibility on the vulnerabilities of #disabled and/or elderly people in natural disasters.

In #CaliforniaWildfires, disabled people may be left behind… via @CurbedSF
.@SFdirewolf: "Every time a major disaster occurs, whether it’s far away or in my region, I wait for the stories of older or disabled people left behind during evacuations or encountering major problems accessing services at shelters and during recovery."…
"Even with the best warning notification systems and strategic plans, people with disabilities are disproportionately impacted during natural disasters."--@SFDirewolf

1 in 5 Americans has at least one #disability, according to @CDCgov.
So this matters.…

#CaliforniaFire A natural disaster (fires in California) + an inadequate response from the government + the air being dangerous to breath. Reminds me of the Chernobyl eyewitnesses stories that I edited in 2016.…
Here you see a friend of mine, a young girl at a time, on her fathers' shoulders during a patriotic parade... breathing in radiation a few days after Chernobyl explosion. This is what happens when the government only protects its own interests.
I was around too, only 60 km from Chernobyl, a few months afterward. We just did not know as no one told us the truth. Trump's tweet this morning, threatening to defund California, in a way, if it is possible, is even more destructive than the response of the USSR leaders.

If Northern California had received anywhere near the typical amount of autumn precipitation this year (around 4-5 in. of rain near #CampFire point of origin), explosive fire behavior & stunning tragedy in #Paradise would almost certainly not have occurred. (1/n) #CAfire #CAwx
Rainy season has started late this year in California...again. While autumn precipitation isn't usually huge fraction of overall annual average, it's hugely important to ecosystems & in bringing "fire season-ending" moisture. This yr, autumn precip was <20-30% of avg. #CAwx (2/n)
Objective indicators of vegetation dryness and potential fire intensity were at record-high levels for the date this week in vicinity of #CampFire--and would have been very high even for peak summer levels--at a time of year when the rainy season is usually ramping up. (3/n)

At the risk of being called a party pooper, I'd like to remind #TheResistance that: 1. #TaxScamBill if anything GOP may now try to shove faster now, suppository style; 2. #NetNeutrality & #NationalMonuments are still in danger; 3. #infrastructure spending & many state services
have been cut to the bone; 4.#CorruptionMustDie & so does #nepotism, but both alive & well; 5. #NazisInAmerica & other hate group rampant, & there is no #GunControlNow or even serious discussion of it; 6. #StateDepartment is being decimated & deserted by many career ppl & that is
one of USA ramparts against isolation & a means to avoid wars; 7. worldwide US credibility, relevance & trustworthiness, even by staunch traditional allies, is at an all time low; 8. ppl whose only credentials are closeness to 45 are still in key positions & some have made wrong
