Increasingly frequent wildfires linked to human-caused climate change, UCLA-led study finds

Research by scientists from UCLA and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory strengthens the case that climate change has been the main cause of the growing amount of land in the western U.S. that has been destroyed by large wildfires over the past two decades. The findings, co-authored by IoES professor Alex Hall, suggest that human-induced climate change is the main cause for increasing fire weather in the western United States.
