Fire in the Forest

Climate Change

"Forests contain a large proportion of the carbon held in all terrestial ecosystems, and therefore wildland fires can produce a significant amount of GHGs, which in turn contribute to climate change... This means that as the climate changes there would be more fire and more GHG emissions, which would further accelerate the rate of climate change."
