To my non-Californian friends: today here in California we had unprecedented fire-prone conditions. High winds, dry air and land.
The town of Paradise is under full evacuation (from what is bitterly called the "Camp Fire") and much of it is burning down, and that fire started only this morning. Ventura county, hundreds of miles away from Paradise also caught fire. There were two small fires in Davis today and that's just what I know about.
People are missing in the Camp Fire. Hundreds if not thousands of people just became homeless.
Everyone is discussing how we need to start fighting climate change NOW. But all we are doing is talking to each other, trying to help share the information about who's missing and who's taking in climate refugees, and processing our collective trauma.
What is our concrete plan? March on Sacramento? March on Washington? Total general strike until this gets addressed? What are we going to do?
