Does global warming cause more wildfires?



  1. 0 Votes

    There have been links between global warming and wildfire frequency in California. Increasing temperatures have caused snowcaps to melt prematurely, causing a rapid drop in humidity. Dry weather then leads to more frequent and intense wildfires that exhaust the resources of local fire departments and destroys homes.

    It is fair to say that hotter temperatures and dryer weather can make areas more susceptible to wildfires. Not enough moisture can cause brush and other plant life to dry out much more so, making large areas much more flammable to the smallest ignition. This issue has become much more prevalent in the western states, particularly California. Wildfires in California and recently Colorado have gotten dangerously out of control, and firefighters have been scrambling to keep up.
