Climate Change Drives California Drought, Wildfire Season

California Drought & Wildfire Season: Climate Change

Drought & Wildfire Season In California Increased By Climate Change

Climate change has long been a hotly debated topic, but recently one of the world’s leaders brought it back to the top of mind for people all over the globe. Pope Francis released a manifesto that focused on how humanity’s carelessness with our planet has created climate change issues that are pushing our world to what he calls a “breaking point.”

In California, we see this evidenced in a particularly scary way as wildfire season has again come to the state. While this hotter, dryer time of year has always been a danger for California, the California drought has essentially created a state-wide tinder box. There is serious concern that this summer could bring catastrophic fires to the too-dry state.

Ultimately, heightened risk of fires in California and Pope Francis’s statement should remind us all that our earth is a precious resource and needs to be cared for and protected.

We should do what we can to reduce, reuse, recycle on a daily basis.  We’d like to suggest that we find other uses for ‘greywater’ so that it doesn’t just go down the drain but to perhaps water our plants or to clean our floors?

Greywater is gently used water from our bathroom sinks, showers, tubs, and washing machines. It is not water that has come into contact with feces, either from the toilet or from washing diapers.

This summer, The Maria Sanchez Show team hopes you will find ways to do your part by conserving water, recycling, reducing your waste, and more. We will be joining you!
