Gov. Newsom signed a $15 billion climate change package Thursday, the largest investment of its kind in the state’s history. He signed the bill in Three Rivers, near the site of the KNP Complex fire that continues to threaten the giant sequoias.
“You've got trees that quite literally date back over 3300 years ago. You can't rebuild a giant sequoia,” he said.
He emphasized the devastating effects of climate change when he referred to the strategies firefighters are using to protect the giants.
