New findings strengthen link between climate change and wildfires

Q. What is this new research?

While wildfires are typical in both California and parts of Australia in the summer months, the intensity and scale of wildfires that these areas have seen in recent years has raised some concerns among scientists about the linkages between human-induced climate change and fire risk.

Further, the authors note that climate change increases the frequency and severity of fire weather around the world and that land management alone “cannot explain recent increases in #wildfire because increased fire weather from climate change amplifies fire risk where fuels remain available”.
