Boxer: 'Warmer temperatures combined with long dry seasons have resulted in more severe wildfires, and it’s only going to get worse. They will tell you, the wildfire season is starting earlier, it’s ending later.'
GOP Calif. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher: 'I think this exemplifies the tactics — the scare tactics — of those who’ve been pushing this global warming fraud on us,” said Rohrbacher. “They’ll take something that is dramatic, like a fire, and try and use that; or a tornado, or a hurricane and say ‘see, people are being hurt’
Rohrabacher challenges Boxer to Debate! 'I challenge Barbara Boxer to a debate on climate change, on global warming. I challenge her to defend her positions, and not just call a bunch of names, not just try to scare the public into accepting her expansion of government power over our lives.'
Reality Check: 'Historical analysis of wildfires around the world shows that since 1950 their numbers have decreased globally by 15%… The world has not seen a general increase in drought. A study published in Nature in November shows globally that ‘there has been little change in drought over the past 60 years.’
