Daniel Swain in The Los Angeles Times: California sizzled with three straight months of record heat and raging fires

In the midst of the state’s most destructive wildfire season, California shattered temperature records in August, September and October. All three months were the state’s warmest on record, according to a new report by UCLA climate scientist Daniel Swain. “The long-term warming trend during the peak of fire season in California has been especially pronounced,” Swain said on Twitter, “and 2020 really puts an exclamation point on that.”
