Mendocino Complex Fire Becomes Second Largest Wildfire in California History


On Sunday, Trump tweeted that the state’s “bad environmental laws” made wildfires worse. It is unclear which state laws the president was referring to.

Henri Grissino-Mayer, a geography professor at the University of Tennessee, told CNN that Trump’s statement is false.

“California does not divert water to the ocean,” Grissini Mayer said. “Ridiculous.”

He added that the state is diverting water to the coastal cities for a constant water supply. The coastal communities are using all of that water.
