I do not agree with waiving environmental reviews. My approach would be to ramp them up, speed them up, fund them that much more. I'd ask the environmentalists to triage the state.
California needs to clear areas that were not allowed to burn naturally. They need to take their forests to where those forests would have been had nature been allowed to take its course.
Naturally, there's a great deal more to it than that, but it's where I'd start.
Of course, the campaign against carbon-fuel burning must also be ramped up.
