As the world burns
Letter to editor by Lee Lull, Medford Mail Tribune, October 16, 2017; Also appearing in the Ashland Daily Tidings, same date
As the world gets hotter and hotter, moisture in the ground and plants evaporates, leaving a dried out earth susceptible to fires in new and invasive areas, not just in the forests. Even treeless Greenland now burns. And most recently, Sonoma! Note that large-scale evaporation changes the global climatic patterns resulting in more destructive storms, deluges and droughts. In fact, each year global warming-induced changes become more noticeable — and costly.
