US President Donald Trump attended a briefing on the raging fires in California, in Sacramento on Monday, during which he downplayed California's Secretary for National Resources Wade Crawfoot urges to focus on working together to tackle climate change, saying «it'll start getting cooler.» «[...] we've had temperatures explode this summer. You may have learned that we broke a world record in the Death Valley, 130 degrees [Fahrenheit]. But even in Greater LA, 120+ degrees. And we're seeing this warming trend make our summers warmer but also our winters warmer as well,» said Crawfoot. «But I think that we want to work with you to really recognise the changing climate and what it means to our forests, and actually work together with that science,» he added. Trump replied, «Okay. It'll start getting cooler. You just watch,» which followed by Crawfoot remarking, «I wish science agreed with you.» «It will. I don't think science knows actually,» Trump replied. According to local reports, more than two million acres have burned in California during the recent wildfires with at least 24 lives lost so far.
