Billions of dollars are now set to be spent on thinning tens of millions of acres of forests in California in order to combat the deadly forest fires during hot and dry summer months.

Donald Trump suggested the Government plan during his presidency, but he was mocked by progressive environmentalists at the time who were adamant the fires were a result of climate change.

Last year, California wildfires burned a record 4.3 million acres and killed 33 people.

Trump at the time issued an ultimatum to California's Democratic leaders, demanding they clean the forest floors or lose federal money.

As usual, the left-leaning establishment media gave a tested narrative that Trump did not "understand the science of wildfires" and was "politicizing natural disasters."

Last October, The Trump administration refused to grant California an emergency declaration that would make hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding available for areas devastated by wildfires.

Gov. Gavin Newsom then appealed to Trump, and the decision was later reversed.

Now, almost halfway into Joe Biden's presidency, California officials are now doing what Trump had suggested all long, clear the forests of debris that intensifies fires.

California will spend $500 million this fiscal year on "an effort that includes clearing pines, firs, and redwoods. Without all this fuel on the forest floor, California officials contend, blazes will be less likely to turn into the mega-fires that devour thousands of acres," Bloomberg reported.

Newsom is also asking state lawmakers for billions more money to finance the forest-clearing campaign.

The move proves that Democrats were politicizing the forest fires at the expense of California residents and the environment, even when claiming to be tackling climate change.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was one of the politicians to politicize the wildfires claiming it was happening because “Mother Earth is angry."

Pelosi said at the time:

"She’s telling us, whether she’s telling us with hurricanes on the Gulf Coast, fires in the West, whatever it is, that the climate crisis is real and has an impact.”

WATCH:

In 2018, Former California Governor Jerry Brown blamed the wildfires squarely on President Donald Trump.

Brown accused Trump and his administration of being “flat Earth” science deniers, declaring "the blood is on your soul."

“California’s burning while the deniers make a joke out of the standards that protect us all,” Brown said.

“The blood is on your soul here, and I hope you wake up. Because this is not politics, this is life, this is morality. … This is real.”
