Could fires such as Fort McMurray become the norm?

Posted by on Wednesday, July 13, 2016



We all remember the devastation of the Fort McMurray Wildfire.

The cleanup is still ongoing and nowhere near completion. But it is possible that fires such as these become the “new normal”?

The short answer is yes.

As climate change continues to change weather patterns we will see forest become drier. 

Since forests will become drier there will be more fire ignitions, and more ignitions will pose greater challenges to fire management agencies.
