‘Green’ Federal Policies Are Not Substitutes for Common Sense Wildfire Prevention

‘Green’ is the new ‘Red’

Headline, The Washington Examiner, July 13, 2022 | ‘Green’ federal policies creating tinderbox for Yosemite wildfire and others

As a wildfire rages in the iconic Yosemite National Park, “green” federal policies are being blamed for adding literal fuel to the fire.

While members of Congress stop short of saying environmental policies caused this fire, it’s clear that the massive firestorms of the past decade would not have happened without the fuel to feed them. California House members have been trying for years to pass laws that would resume clearing tinder, but they have repeatedly been voted down.”

God Bless Texas

While Texas is by no means immune to wildfires, our Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) actually sets the forested areas of our state parks afire to prevent wildfire destruction. The method is not always totally successful and park visitors do become annoyed when they are restricted from select areas undergoing controlled burns, the end result is that Texans always have great state parks for fishing, hiking, horseback riding, boating, and fishing. On the latter, fishing, no fishing license is required to catch fish within the boundaries of the state parks.

Meanwhile, the ‘green’ liberals who set policies in the federal parks and also those who set policies in California state parks, continue their foolishness.

We keep Texas fun and free by electing solid conservatives. If Texas turns ‘blue’, count on radical changes to our TPWD and other state agency policies.

Don’t bet on Beto!

God Bless Texas, Y’all!
