We've stopped watering the landscape, but that can also have a side effect of turning the landscape into combustible fuel ...

Anyway ... clear the brush and branches around your homes. Our municipal fire department inspects properties and will cite you for failing to maintain a space around your home. Our fire department doesn't mess around. That's what happens when you settle umpteen million people in a state made of explodium.

3/4 of the country had the coldest winter in decades and the global warming farktards say California is having a drought because of global warming because we have had some nice weather.  Come on out when you get your asses unfrozen which will be around August and see what it's like not to live in a frozen hell 9 months out of the year and then broil in unbearable humidity and heat the other three.  The wild fires just burn up the dirty hippies in the mountains and the Hollywood assholes in Malibu so we kind of like them. And when worse comes to worst the mudslides usually put out the wild fires anyway.

unyon: Bulk water exports are specifically excluded as part of the CUSFTA and then further enshrined in the NAFTA agreement. We kinda saw that one coming.

But you're still welcome to buy our delicious water, one 1L container at a time. It's tasty, but if you want to use it to put out wildfires, we're not judging.

Oh, and in case you get any other ideas...

We have plenty of water for drinking, thanks.  But when you guys start getting hungry, you may want to ship some of that water to the Central Valley, since they're the ones who need it at the moment.

(Canada is the second-largest recipient of US food exports, totaling $21.3b US last year, 58% of Canada's total food imports.)
