You walking in
Play the video, sound on
As you hear the sound of leaves rustling and bird chirping, you may sense being in the midst of the woods or forest. BUT, once the black screens fade you are confronted by a wildfire.
Warmer temperatures increase the likelihood that fires will burn more intensely. They also cause snow to melt sooner, and lead to drier soils, forests, and plants. Increased droughts, unusual rain patterns, and insect outbreaks that lead to large stands of dead trees are also connected with climate change—and they all make wildfires more likely.
