California fires: Blazes to get ‘A LOT’ worse in the future

“And that’s the scary thing to know as a climate scientist in 2020.”

Former NASA chief scientist Waleed Abdalata, now at Colorado University, added: “I strongly believe we’re going to look back in 10 years, certainly 20 and definitely 50 and say, ‘Wow, 2020 was a crazy year, but I miss it’.”

Jeff Schlegelmilch, director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University, told Weather.com: “These are all things we should expect to see more and more of as climate change takes a deeper hold on our climate and on the extremities that it creates in our weather.”

With the raging fires comes a bombardment of smoke, which can be lethal to residents of California and its neighbouring states such as Nevada and Oregon.
