Yes, the fires are always a big problem but this summer is a nightmare. At least most of them are now under control. I gather that many countries have the same problem. In Greece it is clearly arsoning. The temperature was very high for 10 days or so and there were no fires, and then, suddenly, half of the country was set ablaze.
I am not trying to undermine climate change. Climate change is real and it is more than clear that humans have played a key role in that. It will get even worse I am afraid. As you have read in my book, the planet has known far more extreme climatic conditions, but the planet will eventually recover as it always does. We humans are the one who will be in trouble.
