This footage shows the terrifying scope of the Glass Fire, which has ripped through Northern California this week. Thousands of people have been displaced and at least 80 homes have been destroyed in Napa and Sonoma counties. The fire had burned more than 46,000 acres and was 2% contained by Tuesday evening, according to Cal Fire.
Scientists say the climate crisis is making wildfire seasons longer and more destructive. Rising temperatures have created arid conditions in forested lands, which makes trees drier and therefore more flammable. This year’s wildfires have been further exacerbated by extended heatwaves and warm, dry wind patterns. 2020 has been the worst wildfire season ever in CA, with 5 of the 6 most destructive fires in state history occurring this year.
