Hotter Planet = More Wildfires

As a public service message, Stuart Staniford reprints this map from the 2009 Global Climate Change Impacts report produced by the United States government:

If you think the wildfires currently raging through Colorado are bad, just wait a few decades. You ain’t seen nuthin yet. Stuart has more at his place.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
