WildfireTags: #environment #education #earthday #nature #climate
This world shows a wildfire caused by an unattended campfire. Wildfires burn at rapid speeds, destroying everything in their paths. Wildfires in the USA are most common in the West, where heat, drought and frequent thunderstorms create ideal conditions. California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming experience some of the worst wildfires in the USA. Only 10 - 15% of wildfires occur naturally. The other 85 - 90% of wildfires are caused by human carelessness or arson. Like the majority of environmental disasters caused by human ignorance, stupidity or wilful destruction, this devastation is largely preventable.
