California governor: Climate science around fires will be so clear that 'even the worst skeptics are going to be believers'

BY BRETT SAMUELS - 11/18/18 08:57 AM EST

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) said Sunday he believes the science surrounding the deadly wildfires that have ravaged California in recent years will become so evident that climate skeptics will become believers in the less than five years.

"The last five years, the fires have never been this bad. This fire in Malibu is the worst they've ever seen. This fire in Paradise and Northern California was the worst in the history of California," Brown said on "Face the Nation" on CBS.

"So yeah, you can mull the science, but I'll tell you every year it's going to get clearer and clearer so that I think in less than five years, even the worst skeptics are going to be believers," he continued.

Brown said he raised evidence that climate change has worsened wildfires in California over the last 15 years during his visit with President Trump on Saturday. However, he said he didn't harp on the issue because he was interested in cooperating with the federal government.

2. That guy's underestimating skeptics

If someone's in denial no amount of evidence can shake them.

4. Skeptics who are not threatened by fires, flooding, or tidal surges will not be impressed.
