Daniel Swain discusses 2021 climate disasters with The Weather Channel

“It’s not the presence of fire on the landscape really that’s the problem,” said Swain. “That’s a natural process. The problem is the magnitude and the intensity of the fires that we’re currently seeing. And it is specifically that aspect of wildfire that is directly influenced by climate change and by warming temperatures through that aridification of the landscape and the drying out of vegetation which is potential wildfire fuel.”
