You can't make it up LVIII - wildfires are getting bigger, and man-made climate change is to blame (19 may 14)
"In the past three months, at least three different studies and reports have warned that wildfires are getting bigger, that man-made climate change is to blame, and it's only going to get worse with more fires starting earlier in the year."
Still not convinced? Jonathan Overpeck of Climategate fame adds: "The fires in California and here in Arizona are a clear example of what happens as the Earth warms, particularly as the West warms, and the warming caused by humans is making fire season longer and longer with each decade. It's certainly an example of what we'll see more of in the future."
That should settle it once and for all.
