California just had its hottest month on record, and that means more wildfires

  
It should come as no surprise that California is burning.  On Wednesday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported that July was California's hottest month since record keeping began in 1895. Those scorching temperatures withered the land, creating profoundly parched forests primed to catch fire with just a spark.  SEE ALSO: Engineering Earth's climate might quell global warming, but it could come with a cost Major wildfires are propelled by weather, notably strong winds, but they're also enhanced by overall rising global temperatures due to human-caused climate change, say scientists. This is a particularly stark reality in California, where even in early July, fire scientists noted that the state's vegetation reached near-record dryness.  On Monday, the Mendocino Complex Fire became the largest blaze in state history, easily outpacing the Thomas Fire, which broke the record just this past winter.  Just in: #California had its warmest July on record, as hot, dry weather fueled multiple #wildfires across the state. https://t.co/ggKyL5hS1V — NOAA Satellites (@NOAASatellites) August 8, 2018 Nearly the entire Golden State experienced either record heat or temperatures "much above average" in July, said NOAA.  However, California wasn't alone in experiencing scorching temperatures and multiple heat waves.  Most of the West was abnormally warm, and in the contiguous U.S., May through July temperatures were also the warmest on record, eclipsing the previous record set in 1934. Image: noaaAs climate and environmental scientists are quick to point out, individual temperature records are not too meaningful — it's the long-term trends that matter.  And California's summer heat is certainly a continuation of accelerating warming trends in both the U.S. and around the globe.   Heat waves and longer warming spells will certainly happen, regardless of what the climate is doing, as big blobs of warm air can settle over areas, like California or Europe, for extended periods of time.  But the climate is simply warmer that it was a half century ago, giving hot temperatures an extra boost — which can mean vast swathes of land are turned to fire-ready tinder.   #HolyFire appears to be picking up significantly, making a run to the north, along eastern side of the ridge leading up to Santiago Peak. Current view from HPWREN's camera #CAwx #OrangeCounty #Riverside #SanDiego pic.twitter.com/eqc3gnZ6nR — NWS San Diego (@NWSSanDiego) August 8, 2018 Yet another heat wave continues this week in portions of California, like Los Angeles. As might be expected, this doesn't bode well for the already dry vegetation in the region. Southern California's Holly Fire is now actively growing near suburban neighborhoods. Relieving rains aren't expected in much of the state for months.  California, like recently scorched Greece, experiences the dry, warm summers defined by the Mediterranean climate. Historically, fires happen during this time of year.  But now — just like heat waves around the world — they're getting worse. And the consequences are plainly visible.  WATCH: This "horror" was spotted off the coast of the Carolinas......

New Mexico fugitive 'was training child to carry out school shootings'

  
A man arrested in New Mexico last week on child abuse and abduction charges was training one of the 11 children at his remote desert encampment to carry out a school shooting, prosecutors have claimed. Siraj Wahhaj, 39, appeared before a magistrate in Taos, New Mexico, on Wednesday. He was arrested on Friday after police, searching for his missing four-year-old son Abdul-Ghani, raided the compound and found 11 starving, filthy children with five adults. Wahhaj and the four others – his wife Jany Leveille, 38, his sisters, Subhannah, 35, and Hujrah, 38, and Subhannah's husband Lucas Morten - were charged with 11 counts of child abuse. Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe, who arrested Wahhaj and his associates after a day-long armed standoff, said his men planned "a tactical approach for our own safety, because we had learned the occupants were most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of the Muslim belief." The remote desert camp in New Mexico, which was raided on Friday The remains of a young boy, believed to be Wahhaj's missing son, was found buried on the property, Mr Hogrefe said on Tuesday. On Wednesday it emerged that one of the 11 children taken into care had, according to prosecutors, told their foster parents that Wahhaj trained them to carry out a school shooting. The child was allegedly taught to fire an assault rifle, in readiness for the mission.  Tim Hasson, a prosecutor with the district court in Taos, requested that Wahhaj, son of a prominent Brooklyn imam, remain in custody and that his case be moved to the district court. His office has also filed motions to hold the other four defendants. The saga began in December, when Wahhaj told the boy's mother he was taking their severely disabled child, unable to walk, to the park. A poster from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children shows Abdul-ghani Wahhaj, left, and his father Siraj Wahhaj Credit:  National Center for Missing & Exploited Children He never returned to their home in Georgia, and the boy's mother reported it to the police, saying Wahhaj intended to perform an "exorcism" on his son because Abdul-Ghani was "possessed by the Devil." She later said that "exorcism" was a mistranslation, and that Wahhaj simply wanted to pray for his son. New Mexico authorities had long suspected the father and son might be at the compound after learning about the abduction in May, said Mr Hogrefe. But there was not enough evidence for a search warrant, and surveillance of the property did not identify the pair there. That changed on Thursday, when they received a note from inside the compound saying they were starving and thirsty. Mr Hogrefe said his men found Wahhaj in a "partly buried camper trailer" with two women and several of the children.  Wahhaj refused to come out with his hands up, and when investigators opened the door, they found Wahhaj "was armed with a loaded revolver in his pocket," and was "wearing a belt with five loaded 30-round AR15 magazines in pouches on the belt."  Next to Wahhaj was a loaded AR15, according to Mr Hogrefe's affidavit.  Wahhaj refused to give his name or identify anyone with him. He declined to say anything about his son Abdul's whereabouts, according to the court document.  Investigators found a 100-foot tunnel on the north side of the buried trailer, about three feet in diameter with two dugout "pockets" containing bedding, Mr Hogrefe said. Another enclosure made of straw and tires housed a makeshift toilet. There was no running water.   On the compound was a powerful Marlin 30-30 rifle with a scope, other guns, ammunition, a laptop, camcorder, and a Penguin child's nebulizer used to turn medicine into mist. Morten was arrested at the front of the property and initially charged with harbouring a fugitive. The child abuse charges were added later. "The living conditions, health and wellbeing of the children were deemed deplorable," said Mr Hogrefe. "They had no clean water, food or electricity; dirty clothing, poor hygiene, and

Hollywood votes to remove Donald Trump's star on walk of fame over his 'disturbing treatment of women'

  
West Hollywood City Council has unanimously approved a resolution to remove President Donald Trump's star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The motion, which passed on Monday night, called for the star to be removed over the US president's "disturbing treatment of women" along with "other actions". The Walk of Fame features more than 2,500 stone and brass stars dedicated to celebrities and prestigious figures from the film, television and radio industries. Mr Trump was honoured with his own star on the famous boulevard in 2007 for his work on the TV reality show "The Apprentice."  He attended a ceremony unveiling the plaque with his wife Melania and their son Barron.  It has been targeted by vandals several times since Mr Trump first announced he was running for the presidency. Donald Trump, wife Melania and son Baron attend the ceremony honouring him with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on January 16, 2007 Credit: Vince Bucci/Getty  On Monday, 24-year-old Austin Mikel Clay was charged with vandalism for taking a pickax to the star last month. It has since been repaired but Mr Clay could face up to three years in jail if convicted. The plaque was also damaged just days before the presidential election in November 2016. The plaque has been vandalised several times since Mr Trump announced he would run for office Credit: AFP The resolution, put forward by John D'Amicio, West Hollywood's mayor pro tempore, and council woman Lindsey Horvath, urges the body which administers the stars to remove the president's star. However, the vote is not legally binding as the council has no control over the Walk of Fame.  The decision rests with the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and Los Angeles City Council, who are unlikely to approve the measure. Mr Trump beams as he is awarded a spot on the famous boulevard Credit: Jean Baptiste Lacroix/WireImage Leron Gubler, the chamber president, has previously told the Los Angeles Times a star is never removed because it's considered part of the walk's "historic fabric." Mr Gubler discussed the issue in 2015 over efforts to remove comedian Bill Cosby's star. Cosby was convicted of sexual assault earlier this year following a string of allegations from women who said he drugged and sexually assaulted them.  "Once a star has been added to the walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame," he said. "Because of this, we have never removed a star from the walk." Mr D'Amico defended the symbolic vote, saying it was not about politics but principles.  "The West Hollywood City Council did not pass the resolution because Donald Trump is a conservative or a Republican," he told entertainment website TheWrap.  "Earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is an honour. When one belittles and attacks minorities, immigrants, people with disabilities or women - the honour no longer exists."......
