Another day another liberal narrative busted.
It turns out that climate change is not responsible for some of the forest fires plaguing California it allegedly is a crazy liberal activists.
Her name is Alexandra Souverneve, of Palo Alto, California and she has been charged with arson, she is also the main suspect in a larger investigation and authorities believe she may be behind other fires in the state.
The woke activists, self proclaimed shaman is a graduate from the California Institute of Technology with a degree in chemistry and biology. She was enrolled at the State University of New York’s College Environmental Science and Forestry PHD program but never finished.
From the Dailymail:
Souverneva, who previously worked as a scientist, but whose most recent job was as an SAT tutor, claimed that she had been thirsty whilst out hiking and found a puddle in a dry creek bed which contained bear urine.
She then claims she attempted to filter the water using a tea bag but when that failed tried to start a fire to boil the water. Souverneva said that it was too wet to start a fire so she drank the water and continued walking.
The Fawn Fire has charred more than 13 square miles of heavy timber in the latest destructive blaze to send Californians fleeing this year. As of Monday morning, the fire was 45 per cent contained. CAL FIRE reported on Sunday night that three firefighters were injured while battling the inferno.
Some local authorities appeared to be stunned that a woke activists – who claims to have a deep connection to the spirits of the earth – would be behind the fires.
“It is difficult to grasp when disaster like this is, apparently, not a natural disaster. But we have a suspect,” Shasta County Sheriff Michael L. Johnson said. “Deliberate ignition, if proven, makes it harder for us all to grasp as a community, and to deal with what we’re facing.”
It was quarry workers who first spotted Souverneve trespassing into the forest, hours later a fire broke out in the same area. In the evening Souverneva walked out of the brush and into a fire line. Authorities found her to be in possession of a cigarette lighter, CO2 cartridges, and a “green, leafy substance she said she had been smoking all day.”
“It is my opinion there is a high possibility she is responsible for the vegetation fire in Shasta Lake City the previous evening,’ CAL FIRE officer Matt Alexander wrote. ‘It is my experience that arsonists … will light multiple fires in a short timeframe.”
