Wildfires Worsening Year on Year

LA fires: Why 2017’s record wildfire season keeps getting worse,
Mercury News, December 7, 2017.

"...December is unusual for such a huge, destructive fire..."

If you don't know why each year's wildfires keep getting worse, by now, the article above will only help a little. A very little. It's a sadly insufficient and pathetic article.

I can offer the list of temp and wildfire links below to fill you in more fully, as to, "why," but this whole site here is dedicated to tracking the nature of Nature through as many of its manifestations as possible. All the biological expressions of Nature are screaming in pain as they respond to the brutal changes in the character and timing of the climate we've already triggered, and are actively driving forward.
