Anthropogenic Canada Fires2004 479Top (Gillett et al., 2004)https://doi.org/10.1029/2004GL020876There has been a pronounced upward trend in area burned by wildland fires in Canada over the past three decades...We further show that human-induced climate change has had a detectable influence on the area burned by forest fire in Canada over recent decades...mean temperature is highly correlated with total area burned in Canada (r = 0.77).
Anthropogenic United States Fires2016 1025Top (Abatzoglou and Williams, 2016)https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1607171113We estimate that human-caused climate change contributed to an additional 4.2 million ha of forest fire area during 1984-2015, nearly doubling the forest fire area expected in its absence.
