The White House released a video yesterday linking climate change to America's wildfires. President Obama's Senior Science Advisor Dr. John Holdren explains—in less than three minutes—how climate change is making wildfires more dangerous and why we must act now.
“While no single wildfire can be said to be caused by climate change, climate change has been making the fire season in the U.S. longer and on average more intense,” Holdren says in the video. He explains that wildfires have “increased several-fold in the last decade” and the eight worst years on record for “area burned” by wildfires “have all occurred since 2000.”
