Climate change will lead to more wildfires
Today’s Video of the Day from NASA explains that the hotter and drier weather associated with climate change will lead to more frequent wildfires.
Drought conditions make it easier for wildfires to ignite and to spread, and increasingly severe droughts will leave some regions of the world particularly vulnerable to severe fires.
Scientists at NASA recently discovered that greenhouse gas emissions from human activities have been influencing drought patterns since the early 1900s.
