Wildfires in California are worsening ever year. The Mendocino wildfire is currently the largest blaze in state history. Environmentalists attribute dead lumber to the increase of the fires, but others claim radical environmental groups are to blame.

During an interview with Breitbart News, Trump Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said “environmental terrorist groups” are behind the record-setting fires.

On Friday, Zinke continued his attacks on unconventional environmentalists.

Secretary Zinke said to Lou Dobbs, “You look at these radical environmental groups. They would rather see the entire forest burn down than harvest a single tree. This country imports timber. There’s billions of board feed and timber lying on the forest floor rotting. When you look at the housing prices, a leading indicator of the housing prices are timber and material”.
