More severe wildfires are among the consequences of climate change, say state studies released last Tuesday.
The California Natural Resources Agency and the California Energy Commission released “Our Changing Climate 2012.” The report says you should also expect more heat waves.
Nevada County resident Russ Steele writes about global warming and questions linking more wildfires to climate change. Steele says a buildup of fuels on the forest floor from old trees is behind bigger fires, and that the promoters of climate change also oppose thinning the forest to reduce the impact of wildfires.
Steel say state scientists start with an assumption about climate change.
