Climate change is responsible for spike in wildfires

Posted on April 23rd, 2014 No Comments

A recent study observed that the warming of the climate is contributing to a dramatic increase in wildfires throughout the western United States.

According to a study published in the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the amount of large wildfires that occur annually has increased by seven more fires a year from 1984 to 2011. The amount of damaged acres has also increased by 90,000 acres.

The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) said that some parts of California are at a high risk of experiencing wildfires in the upcoming months. Researchers blame the increase in wildfires to pollution and other man-made emissions.

The attorneys at Williams Hart understand that many people experience devastating damages due to wildfires. During a burn ban people should take extra precaution regarding potential fire hazards.
