Incendios forestales extremos causan devastación global

By Ninian Carter

July 27, 2022 - Los científicos creen que el cambio climático provoca los múltiples incendiosforestales que están causando destrucción generalizada en todo el mundo

Extreme wildfires (blazes which have consumed more than 400 hectares) have destroyed vast swathes of land around the world in the first half of 2022.

Once relatively rare, these large, out of control fires are becoming increasingly frequent events, fuelled by multiple heatwaves and droughts.

Scientists believe the cause to be climate change, brought about by man-made pollution – an issue they have been warning of for decades.
