Wild Fires - The Immediate Face of Climate Change? (Weather)

California is still burning

Is that area heading towards 'too dangerous to inhabit' or will things get so burned out there's nothing left to burn?


Where I am here I can see fires from my porch that have been burning for weeks - apparently they are deliberately lit by farmers for 'back burning' purposes. Controlled fuel reduction burning is ok but seems a bit late to be still doing it now - in Qld , which is more tropical, iI guess they figure they get enough rain to keep it under control - but I do wonder if they're factoring climate change into that traditional practice

Although we had decent rain a few weeks back there's been none since plus a full week of 38-40C weather and now the grass, after suddenly turning green from months of yellow, is turning.back yellow again

Another couple of weeks with no rain and then a 40 plus day with wind and those fires could easily explode
