Everything is burning. EVERYTHING. A lot of my friends that live in small towns are being forced to leave their houses, and if the wind changes, I will probably have to do so.
This is horrible.
You see Valencia? The grey mark? Well, that’s the THIRD BIGGEST CITY in Spain after Barcelona. You can see how BIG the red marks are, right? That’s FIRE. It was raining /ash/ in Valencia a couple of days ago.
And because the government over here is SHIT, a couple of years ago they took more than half of the budget to prevent fire. More than 200 firefighters weren’t hired this year, so there are a lot of small towns that don’t have FIREFIGHTERS. You know where that money went?
To bring the POPE. TO VALENCIA. WHAT THE HELL.
Oh, and do I need to mention that now it is LEGAL to build over carbonized terrain? Yeah. That’s why half of the mountains over here are completely peeled of vegetation, forests, etc. and are covered with fucking APARTMENTS.
It is just so sad. I don’t get humans. Seriously.
Sorry for the rant, but I just needed to post this somewhere.
