For decades, climate scientists have warned that a hotter climate will cause drought and devastating wildfires. And here they are. Where is the outrage at the fossil fuel industry, the billionaires, and the government?
The Chilean wildfires are still burning after 112 people were killed ( and counting), with hundreds if not thousands missing and the deaths of countless wildlife and our fur babies. The damage is in the country's central region, which heats and dries up during El Nino. Climate change amplifies the disaster worse. Global heating is a threat multiplier when conditions are ripe. The world’s climate system is breaking down, and we witness it in such events.
The fires in Chile have surpassed the deaths and devastation of the Lahaina wildfire. They are now the deadliest in South American history.
The videos below are nothing but remarkable.
Are we this desensitized already? The fun has just begun, and privilege will not save any of us from the pyrocene.
