Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Wildfire Threatens Wealthy Communities East of Los Angeles

The blaze, dubbed the Etiwanda Fire, broke out in the San Bernardino National Forest, fanned by hurricane force-winds of up to 130 km/h amid exceptional drought and unseasonably hot weather in the region.

The fast-moving fire had burnt more than 1,000 acres  by Wednesday afternoon, and forced mandatory evacuations of about 1,700 residences in the foothills of mountains north of Rancho Cucamonga.

Authorities also evacuated Los Osos High School and canceled classes at Chaffey College for the day, said Cal Fire.

Exceptional Drought – States of Emergency

With California’s driest months ahead, Governor Brown has issued a second executive order in just three month to “redouble state drought actions, and has called on all Californians to redouble their efforts to conserve water.”

“The driest months are still to come in California and extreme drought conditions will get worse,” said Brown. “This order cuts red tape to help get water to farmers more quickly, ensure communities have safe drinking water, protect vulnerable species and prepare for an extreme fire season. I call on every city, every community, every Californian to conserve water in every way possible.”

FIRE-EARTH Forecast: The worsening drought and other climatic conditions in California are setting the stage for a potentially very destructive fire season throughout the state, as well as in the West, South and Central U.S.
