Re "Crews gain on wildfire" (Page A1, July 28): When did this happen? I read the Sacramento Bee. I have for decades. Recently, I've noticed that not a day goes by without a story about a drought, a wildfire, tornadoes, flooding, extreme weather, rising seas or melting glaciers. It wasn't always like this. Certainly, there were weather-related storied, but every day?
So it's not just my grandchildren who will be given 10 minutes notice to clear out in the face of rapidly spreading wildfire. It's not just his brother whose farming livelihood will be threatened by drought. It's not just my grandnephew in the Midwest who will be threatened by tornadoes or his sister living on the east coast who will be threatened by floods.
Climate change denial has become a luxury I just can't afford. When did this happen?
