Wildfires are becoming more of an issue and wreaking havoc on the land and the lives of those they cross. This is, unfortunately, due to the effects of climate change. Fires are gaining in frequency and becoming more intense and expanding in size, making them even deadlier and harder to contain.
Climate Change & the Increase in Wildfires
How does climate change directly link to an increase in wildfires?
First, there has been an ongoing escalation in global warming, with record-breaking temperatures seen worldwide. Global warming has been around for a long time but has heavily increased in the last few decades. Growth in the human population and the use of fossil fuels have dramatically impacted this.
Droughts are also becoming more common and are directly linked to global warming. Warmer temperatures result in water evaporating and drying out the land and all that inhabits it, and a lack of humidity results in arid climates. These two aspects combined lead to hotter and dryer climates that fires can and inevitably will catch in, spread in, and thrive in.
How Does This Affect Humanity?
Considering the effects of climate change and how it directly impacts the frequency and severity of wildfires, there are many hazards people everywhere may face. Wildfires can spread far and wide in the blink of an eye, destroying everything in their path.
They’re extremely harmful to the earth’s natural vegetation and the ecosystem as a whole, and they’re detrimental to the homes and livelihoods of those who live in and around the area.
