Global warming: worse wildfires, stronger hurricanes`
We can expect more and worse wildfires as global warming continues, as well as stronger hurricanes. Arctic ice is shrinking drastically. Thanks, President Bush, for taking absolutely no action on this issue. Note this from the first link:
The total acreage burned by wildfires so far this year now exceeds the total acreage burned in any year since records started being kept in 1960. As of September 13, some 8.7 million acres have burned –an area nearly twice the size of New Jersey. This exceeds the record set just last year of 8.5 million acres.
