Climate Change Deniers?
The new report is set against a world faced with record-breaking heat, intense wildfires, and unprecedented flooding events. It doesn’t require a degree in science or engineering to perceive the effects of global warming. It only requires access to a window to look outside at one’s own neighborhood.
For example, drought and wind-driven wildfires have become a reoccurring danger to the American West. Last year fires consumed a record 4 percent of California. To combat these climate changes, firefighters have turned to technology to help them predict and deal with the growing menace of flames. Technology will help, but it’s only a part of the solution.
