  2. Wee all know that California is an earthquake hot spot and i think alot of the fire's are caused by escaping gas from deep in the earth and the gas is created by friction The earth plates moving/ rubbing together causing friction making gas which eventually escapes And if you do alittle detective work and look at California map and find out were the fires are They nearly make a straight line on the california fault line Something weird is going on But not really shour wot…Maybe the earth is telling us an earthquake is coming A big one ..2020 has been a weird fkd up year Anything is possible…Check out yourself

  3. Trump says it's about forest mismanagement. The BBC then denounces that idea (Orange Man Bad etc) and then proceeds to claim it's about forest mismanagment. Does the BBC take us for fools?

  4. It’s more like a century of misguided fire suppression, mixed with a critical misunderstanding about trees, combined with climate change, and wide spread global idiocy. Big trees can survive natural fires, little trees create fuel for massive blazes. Sadly most of us stupid humans can’t wait to chop forests up, build parking lots, and get paid.

  5. The common enemy of humanity is man.
    In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up
    with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
    water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these
    dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through
    changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome.
    The real enemy then, is humanity itself.“
    – Club of Rome

  6. “We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.“ – Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation

  7. The truth is the modern and past naturalists should stay out of forest management. Just because they were hiking that day and got a little bit of smoke up their nose. They complain to the world that this wasn't right. So now everyone has smoke up their notes. I think education here is the key. Especially when you live in a desert. It requires been enormous amount of resources to maintain a human population. If we ever decide to settle in another place . I hope this isn't the 1st thing they try to do.

  8. Liberal policies have done much more than wildfires. Its a liberal shithole and everyone knows it. Why else are they leaving the state in droves….unfortunately to probably recreate their problems in other less liberal states

  9. California did this to themselves and they want to run the world? What a joke. As for the natives some may had set fires but mother nature did the most on this. They did not have the tools to put out major fires.

  10. After the humanitarian "ceasefire", several cities outside of conflict zone including Ganja, second biggest city of Azerbaijan, are under the rocket attack of Armenia! Civilians are killed and wounded in their sleep
    – At least 7civilians killed and more than 40 civilians injured, search and rescue efforts continue.
    – Impact of the missile(s) has caused a huge hole on four-story, 24-apartment buildings.
    – Surrounding residential apartments and buildings have left in ruins.
    This aggression should stop! The political and military government of Armenia must be held responsible for the act!

  11. That was the least informative and completely non-enlightening bit of BBC ism in my 60 plus years as a listener. Come on Dear Beeb, please don't drop the Enseigne … Al Jaz has become a serious rival for my ear.

  12. People think that society is broken and that it needs to fixed. The truth is society is dead and needs to be redeemed. Jesus is the way and the truth and the life! He is the great redeemer. Let Him redeem your life today!

  13. On October 11, 2020, around 02 a.m a multi-apartment building in Ganja city, the second-largest city of Azerbaijan which is located far from the war zone, was subject to heavy shelling by the Armed Forces of the enemy. As a result, 7 people were killed, 33 were injured and numerous civil infrastructure facilities were significantly damaged.
    The armed forces of the occupant Republic of Armenia violated the norms and principles of international law, including the requirements of the 1949 Geneva Conventions and the Additional Protocols to the Convention, as well as the requirements of the humanitarian ceasefire declared on October 10, 2020, at 12 p.m, continues to shell residential areas with heavy artillery, deliberately targeting the civilian population of Azerbaijan.

  14. There are no WILD FIRES they are planned and scripted to reinforce the FAKE climate change that steals all our hard earned tax money and our incomes to finance the rich with more and more.

  15. Armenian Church is more important than Azerbaijani civilians? Why the world is still silent about it??? This is not even a conflict zone. #Ganja #StopArmenianTerrorism #KarabakhWar

    #Armenia begged for a humanitarian ceasefire after 11 hours of debate in #Moscow. It only took 20 minutes for them to start attacking civilians again. This night at 3 am, the second biggest Ganja was attacked AGAIN. Tens wounded, kids are dead! THIS IS #TERRORISM

    Attacking civilians with destructive missiles out of theatre of military operations is war crime!

    #StopArmenianTerrorism #Ganja #StopArmenianAggression #StopAttackingCivilians

  16. Lefty stupidity and a Fake MSM has allowed the destruction of California. Lies about a virus with a 99% survival rate! A push for a NWO! A push for a vaccine that's not needed! Closing businesses without reason! A destruction of Civil Liberties! A push for the Mark of the Beast! A push for Communism!
    People need to wake up to the fact that the BBC/MSM are the real enemy!

  17. Petition launched to declare RSS a Foreign Terrorist Organization
    February 1, 2020 9:50 pm
    RSS
    One of the leading international petition hosting portal, has called on the US State Department to immediately declare the Indian right-wing, Hindu nationalist, paramilitary volunteer organisation, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

    The petition signed so far by over four thousand people reminds that the Indian outfit takes direct inspiration from the European fascist movements such as Nazi party.

    Referring to the acts of violence committed by the RSS members, the petition recalls that the US commission on International Religious Freedom in its report last year also warned that the outfit’s agenda to alienate non Hindus or lower caste Hindus is a significant contributor to the rise of religious violence and persecution.

    The petition mentions that the RSS including its many subsidiaries has been linked to many major incidents of anti-minority violence all across India including the 2002 Gujarat Pogrom.

    Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan also said in Tweet that extremist ideology of RSS has taken over a nuclear-armed country of over a billion people.

    The Prime Minister further stated “It is an ideology based on racial superiority & hatred of Muslims & all minorities. Whenever this genie has come out of the bottle, it has always led to bloodshed.”

    The Premier also shared an article carried by British daily “The Times” titled “India is a Hindu state now — We are second-class citizens.”

  22. The Emissaries
    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.[77:1]
    By the emissary winds, (sent) one after another

    [77:2]
    By the raging hurricanes,

    [77:3]
    By those which cause earth’s vegetation to revive;

    [77:4]
    By those who winnow with a winnowing,

    [77:5]
    By those who bring down the Reminder,

    [77:6]
    To excuse or to warn,

    [77:7]
    Surely that which ye are promised will befall.

    [77:8]
    So when the stars are put out,

    [77:9]
    And when the sky is riven asunder,

    [77:10]
    And when the mountains are blown away,

    [77:11]
    And when the messengers are brought unto their time appointed –

    [77:12]
    For what day is the time appointed ?

    [77:13]
    For the Day of Decision.

    [77:14]
    And what will convey unto thee what the Day of Decision is! –

    [77:15]
    Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

    [77:16]
    Destroyed We not the former folk,

    [77:17]
    Then caused the latter folk to follow after ?

    [77:18]
    Thus deal We ever with the guilty.

    [77:19]
    Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

    [77:20]
    Did We not create you from a base fluid

    [77:21]
    Which We laid up in a safe abode

    [77:22]
    For a known term ?

    [77:23]
    Thus We arranged. How excellent is Our arranging!

    [77:24]
    Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

    [77:25]
    Have We not made the earth a receptacle

    [77:26]
    Both for the living and the dead,

    [77:27]
    And placed therein high mountains and given you to drink sweet water therein ?

    [77:28]
    Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

    [77:29]
    (It will be said unto them:) Depart unto that (doom) which ye used to deny;

    [77:30]
    Depart unto the shadow falling threefold,

    [77:31]
    (Which yet is) no relief nor shelter from the flame.

    [77:32]
    Lo! it throweth up sparks like the castles,

    [77:33]
    (Or) as it might be camels of bright yellow hue.

    [77:34]
    Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

    [77:35]
    This is a day wherein they speak not,

    [77:36]
    Nor are they suffered to put forth excuses.

    [77:37]
    Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

    [77:38]
    This is the Day of Decision, We have brought you and the men of old together.

    [77:39]
    If now ye have any wit, outwit Me.

    [77:40]
    Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

    [77:41]
    Lo! those who kept their duty are amid shade and fountains,

    [77:42]
    And fruits such as they desire.

    [77:43]
    (Unto them it is said:) Eat, drink and welcome, O ye blessed, in return for what ye did.

    [77:44]
    Thus do We reward the good.

    [77:45]
    Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

    [77:46]
    Eat and take your ease (on earth) a little. Lo! ye are guilty.

    [77:47]
    Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

    [77:48]
    When it is said unto them: Bow down, they bow not down!

    [77:49]
    Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

    [77:50]
    In what statement, after this, will they believe ?

  23. Crouching
    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.[45:1]
    Ha. Mim.

    [45:2]
    The revelation of the Scripture is from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.

    [45:3]
    Lo! in the heavens and the earth are portents for believers.

    [45:4]
    And in your creation, and all the beasts that He scattereth in the earth, are portents for a folk whose faith is sure.

    [45:5]
    And the difference of night and day and the provision that Allah sendeth down from the sky and thereby quickeneth the earth after her death, and the ordering of the winds, are portents for a people who have sense.

    [45:6]
    These are the portents of Allah which We recite unto thee (Muhammad) with truth. Then in what fact, after Allah and His portents, will they believe ?

    [45:7]
    Woe unto each sinful liar,

    [45:8]
    Who heareth the revelations of Allah recited unto him, and then continueth in pride as though he heard them not. Give him tidings of a painful doom.

    [45:9]
    And when he knoweth aught of Our revelations he maketh it a jest. For such there is a shameful doom.

    [45:10]
    Beyond them there is hell, and that which they have earned will naught avail them, nor those whom they have chosen for protecting friends beside Allah. Theirs will be an awful doom.

    [45:11]
    This is guidance. And those who disbelieve the revelations of their Lord, for them there is a painful doom of wrath.

    [45:12]
    Allah it is Who hath made the sea of service unto you that the ships may run thereon by His command, and that ye may seek of His bounty, and that haply ye may be thankful;

    [45:13]
    And hath made of service unto you whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth; it is all from Him. Lo! herein verily are portents for a people who reflect.

    [45:14]
    Tell those who believe to forgive those who hope not for the days of Allah; in order that He may requite folk what they used to earn.

    [45:15]
    Whoso doeth right, it is for his soul, and whoso doeth wrong, it is against it. And afterward unto your Lord ye will be brought back.

    [45:16]
    And verily we gave the Children of Israel the Scripture and the Command and the Prophethood, and provided them with good things and favoured them above (all) peoples;

    [45:17]
    And gave them plain commandments. And they differed not until after the knowledge came unto them, through rivalry among themselves. Lo! thy Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that wherein they used to differ.

    [45:18]
    And now have We set thee (O Muhammad) on a clear road of (Our) commandment; so follow it, and follow not the whims of those who know not.

    [45:19]
    Lo! they can avail thee naught against Allah. And lo! as for the wrong-doers, some of them are friends of others; and Allah is the Friend of those who ward off (evil).

    [45:20]
    This is clear indication for mankind, and a guidance and a mercy for a folk whose faith is sure.

    [45:21]
    Or do those who commit ill-deeds suppose that We shall make them as those who believe and do good works, the same in life and death ? Bad is their judgment!

    [45:22]
    And Allah hath created the heavens and the earth with truth, and that every soul may be repaid what it hath earned. And they will not be wronged.

    [45:23]
    Hast thou seen him who maketh his desire his god, and Allah sendeth him astray purposely, and sealeth up his hearing and his heart, and setteth on his sight a covering ? Then who will lead him after Allah (hath condemned him) ? Will ye not then heed ?

    [45:24]
    And they say: There is naught but our life of the world; we die and we live, and naught destroyeth us save time; when they have no knowledge whatsoever of (all) that; they do but guess.

    [45:25]
    And when Our clear revelations are recited unto them their only argument is that they say: Bring (back) our fathers. then, if ye are truthful.

    [45:26]
    Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Allah giveth life to you, then causeth you to die, then gathereth you unto the Day of Resurrection whereof there is no doubt. But most of mankind know not.

    [45:27]
    And unto Allah belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth; and on the day when the Hour riseth, on that day those who follow falsehood will be lost.

    [45:28]
    And thou wilt see each nation crouching, each nation summoned to its record. (And it will be said unto them): This day ye are requited what ye used to do.

    [45:29]
    This Our Book pronounceth against you with truth. Lo! We have caused (all) that ye did to be recorded.

    [45:30]
    Then, as for those who believed and did good works, their Lord will bring them in unto His mercy. That is the evident triumph.

    [45:31]
    And as for those who disbelieved (it will be said unto them): Were not Our revelations recited unto you ? But ye were scornful and became a guilty folk.

    [45:32]
    And when it was said: Lo! Allah’s promise is the truth, and there is no doubt of the Hour’s coming, ye said: We know not what the Hour is. We deem it naught but a conjecture, and we are by no means convinced.

    [45:33]
    And the evils of what they did will appear unto them, and that which they used to deride will befall them.

    [45:34]
    And it will be said: This day We forget you, even as ye forgot the meeting of this your day; and your habitation is the Fire, and there is none to help you.

    [45:35]
    This, forasmuch as ye made the revelations of Allah a jest, and the life of the world beguiled you. Therefor this day they come not forth from thence, nor can they make amends.

    [45:36]
    Then praise be to Allah, Lord of the heavens and Lord of the earth, the Lord of the Worlds.

    [45:37]
    And unto Him (alone) belongeth Majesty in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
