FEMA Fakes It

Despite the grave failings and self-deception of our political leadership in the aftermath of the hurricaine Katrina disaster-as in,” you’re doing a good job, Brownie”- you would have thought that FEMA had learned its lesson.

But lo and behold, we are now learning that the FEMA press conference  last week in response to the catastrophic wildfires in Southern California  was not even real. It did not include actual reporters, but rather, FEMA employees asking softball questions of its own agency.

Despite this deception,  the firefighters and volunteers in the California wildfires are doing a heroic job. And in spite of the fake FEMA press conference, the support from around the nation and the state leadership for the victims of the fires is outstanding.

Kudos, also,  to MSC, who encouraged prayers for the victims and provided assistance to the victims of the wildfires.

But our government may want to give more serious consideration to the serious impact of global warming on the expansion and intensity of these fires.
