    Not sure how that affects wildfires, but on another note, I bought new socks so I should be getting better gas mileage.

      We’re clear that greenhouses gasses trap heat in the atmosphere, driving global warming and the effects of climate change, like the firestorms all over California now, right? So unless your new socks stop you having to run your gas guzzler, I’m not getting the metaphor.

        I think it's likely that arson and lack of controlled burns are larger drivers of firestorms. I'm a big fan of renewable energy, but I find the connection here as tenuous as my socks. And they make me feel better, and isn't that what's really important?

          Anthropogenic global warming, yes or no?

          Arson? Who’re these arsonists? Is it Antifa? Because I bet it’s Antifa, right? And here, I thought it was the energy utility PG&E, with their ancient, decrepit above and below-ground monopoly infrastructure.

          Lack of controlled burns? Maybe I’m surprised because I live in California, and I see them. You might think California is an isolated backwater around forest management. Not so much, although you’re right, I’m not entirely certain every neighorhood in the city of Santa Rosa is doing everything they can with controlled burns.

          It’s true, there’s nothing as enjoyable as fresh socks. Well, except maybe wholesale rollbacks of environmental laws. For some folks, not only are they a pure delight, like your new socks, they’re about about feeling good. For now.
