Once again, we here in Colorado are experiencing the wild fires that a massive dry and beetle-killed forest is bringing all across the western US and all the way up into northern Canada. Our forests are dying and as they die, due to drier and warmer than normal winters that have ceased to stay cold long enough to freeze the bark beetles and fungus to stop their spread, a lightning strike, a carelessly discarded cigarette or an abandoned campfire not sufficiently exterminated, the once naturally occurring and much small wildfires consume these forests hotter and farther than ever before. One thing to remember, Its not only the homes of people who may live in these areas that are lost but the homes and lives of birds and all other wildlife with their new families who succumb to the flames. This is what climate change looks like.
