And it turns out they are absolutely right.
Police have arrested over 15 Antifa activists for lighting those fires across the West Coast in the past few weeks. All of them have claimed they are not guilty by reason of climate change.
“I’m not guilty,” one alleged arsonist Karl Phukphace said. “It was all climate change. Climate change made me do it!”
“The link between arsonists and the deadly fires that devastate the West Coast every fall is well known and well documented, with the rate of deliberately lit fires escalating rapidly during Antifa riot season ,” authorities said.
But blaming climate change is something new.
“It’s the perfect scapegoat!” Newsom added. “Who can deny it?”
Climate activist Greta Thunberg has denounced climate change for the destruction in California and Oregon. “One way or another climate change did this!”
