Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke blamed “environmental radicals” for the deadly wildfires in California, saying after he toured the damage from the Camp Fire that environmentalists stop forest management practices that could have prevented the fires, CBS News reports.
Said Zinke: “I will lay this on the foot of those environmental radicals that have prevented us from managing the forests for years. And you know what? This is on them.”
But he also added that “it’s not the time for finger-pointing” on the causes of the fires.Save to Favorites
