Fire Ecologists: Climate Change Will Hinder Wildland Fire Management

Global warming will cause wildfires to burn bigger, faster and hotter in the future, making fire management more costly and more difficult, say fire ecologists.

The declaration, called the “San Diego Declaration on Climate Change and Fire Ecology” will be submitted in November at the Third International Fire Ecology and Management Congress in San Diego .
