Global wildfire carbon dioxide emissions at record high, data shows

5 min read

Due to the climate crisis, there has been an increase in the number of global wildfire emissions. There are concerns raised by scientists that areas with dense vegetation are becoming a source rather than a sink of greenhouse gases. The rise in flammability has led to increase in carbon emissions. Although Europe has far less forest cover but it recorded devastating fire especially in Turkey. The fire blaze is burning longer and has a higher ferocity.
