As for the severity of the golden state's fire season, that's attributed to the warming climate, not environmental laws. "That's the ultimate driver behind what's happening in California".

"Unfortunately, they're not going to get a break anytime soon", said Brian Hurley, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland. The Carr fire has Whiskeytown Lake, Shasta Lake and Trinity Lake just to name a few water sources.
