Global warming amplifies Western forest fire seasons -- study

Global warming, not poor forest management, is responsible for accelerating catastrophic Western forest fires over the past 35 years, a new federally funded report states. Climate models show that warmer springs and summers will likely continue to intensify, further increasing large wildfires and making forest management techniques such as thinning and fire suppression ineffective, according to the report by scientists at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the University of Arizona, to be published later today in the journal Sciencexpress.
