Study: Wildfires getting worse due to climate change
Wildfires in California and across the West have become twice as destructive over the past three decades due to climate change, taking a toll that will only continue to escalate, according to research. The study by scientists at the University of Idaho and Columbia University found that 10.4 million acres — an area about 30 times the size of Los Angeles — burned between 1984 and 2015 as a direct result of human-caused global warming. A total of 23.5 million acres was scorched in Western states during the period.
