A researcher at the University of Alberta says that human-caused climate change has made natural disasters much worse.

This year there have been major wildfires in British Columbia and Alberta.

Massive fires have scorched portions of Chile, Portugal, and California.

In California there are tens of billions in losses.

Warmer temperatures have caused an increase in lightning activity a says Mike Flannigan, a professor of wildland fire at the University of Alberta

Climate change didn't cause these disasters but it did contribute to their extreme nature.
