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 “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.
