On second thought, there’s no cause for concern. The fire in Siberia is only 2 million acres and Alaska is only 424 million acres in size, so nothing to get into a twist about.
When the article appeared there we’re 900,000 hectares burning, so I’m sure it’s much bigger now unless it blew itself out.
The worlds biggest forest fire is burning in Siberia over 2 million acres as of last Sunday.
Will this cause climate change and has this happened before?
Yes indeed, we were on vacation alert, but we just lost a paltry 500 hectares of goonwood. It blazed a swath just 5 miles from my house and just missed my guvment forest block by 1 mile, but wished it had taken that too.Maybe it was 2 million Hectares, which would be between 5-6 million acres.
There’s also total this year #’s and currently burning amounts
In any case it’s a lot
You’ve had a big year up there too, slow so far down here on the west
Interesting article on global fire patterns, trends:
"There are really two separate trends,” said Randerson. “Even as the global burned area number has declined because of what is happening in savannas, we are seeing a significant increase in the intensity and reach of fires in the western United States because of climate change.”
I'd totally buy it if it weren't for this year in CA. I mean, did climate change take the year off?
"California's Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says this year's wildfires have burned 90% less acreage compared to last year."
Last year the majority of the big fires that burned most of the acreage didn’t occur until October or later. The early season stuff is pretty piddly and doesn’t take much to lose 90%. Don’t worry, it will pick up. Overall trends don’t care about one aberration anyway.
The science doesn’t care what you buy or not. The climate is changing, wether humans are affecting it and the degree is up for debate. The fact that after the last few seasons more work is being done for fire prevention than previously will prevent a lot of the early season piddly stuff or limit it.
