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

So California goes up in smoke every year now.

Although climate change can seem like this potential effect that might happen in the future, wildfires appear to be on the rise worldwide right now

Greece, Portugal, and America in the last couple of weeks - and big drought brewing in Australia - which will almost certainly mean a bad bushfire season here in the coming summer

The area of California that was on my short list for retirement has burned for the last three summers. Lake County, California, which includes Clear Lake. The map below shows just how much is burning near the lake right now. That's huge. I got this data from this shortened link: http://url.site25.net/71 .

In included the Bay Area in the screen grab for perspective and location.

Notice on the image under 'Active 2018 Incident', there's a list, then a note that says 37 more. 37 more active fires.

Lake County is beautiful. I've visited there many times. It looks like some property I used to visit has been consumed. But this is the third year in a row that Clear Lake has seen evacuations and pretty bad property damage. Well, shit.

It's something you have to consider if you're looking to buy a property. Anywhere that used to be prone to bushfires is now super-prone - until it all becomes a lunar scape then it's probably safe again

What's your theory on where's the best place to live geographically in the States (or elsewhere) in a climate changed world?

An update on the imminent fire threat looming in Australia which I expected to start in late spring - it's already started - in winter - which is nuts.

Fires near here today and a Total Fire Ban for this area tomorrow with big winds forecast
