Climate Change Will Spread Wildfires Like Wildfire

It’s a simple concept - the triangle of fire. Oxygen, fuel and heat are the corners: remove one, I was taught in school, and you stop the fire. So, it follows that if you increase these essential ingredients there will be more fires - and with climate change models predicting hotter, drier weather for some regions, the models are also predicting more wildfires.

In this photo, a Sikorsky S-64 Aircrane firefighting helicopter drops water on a hotspot burning close to homes near Horsetooth Reservoir in northern Colorado. Residents near the fire in High Park have been evacuated from their homes as fire services attempt to bring a wildfire under control. Lightning sparked the blaze, says the US Forest Service who also report that this is the one of the largest fires in Colorado history burning 17,500 hectares so far.
