Climate Change Leads To More Fall Fires In California
The old impulse is to think of wildfires as creatures of the summer. But that is no longer strictly the case in California.
The Camp Fire and its destruction of most of Paradise in November 2018 provide a clear example. Recent research indicates the trend will continue, with more extreme autumn wildfire conditions across the state.
