Wildfires are growing in scale, frequency, and intensity, wreaking devastating consequences on an ever-larger number of communities around the world. Stuck in a destructive feedback loop, the climate crisis worsens fires with hotter temperatures, more intense and longer dry seasons, earlier snowmelt, and stronger winds damaging nature’s ability to resist fire, while fires, in turn, accelerate the climate crisis by releasing huge stores of carbon into the atmosphere. 

But we can turn things around. By taking steps such as tackling the climate crisis and using sustainable land management practices, we can limit fires’ worst impacts—saving lives, protecting wildlife, and safeguarding our communities.
