Wildfire Increase Linked to Climate

Higher temperatures over 34 years -- rather than land-use changes -- have led to more blazes, researchers say. Theyre sure its not a fluke. Rising temperatures throughout the West have stoked an increase in large wildfires over the past 34 years as spring comes earlier, mountain snows melt sooner and forests dry to tinder, scientists reported Thursday.

U.S. foot-dragging fuels global warming

By the time we get proof of climate change, it will be too late to reverse course. ON JUNE 12, 1992, President George H.W. Bush, appearing at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, signed the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change. The convention set the goal of averting dangerous human interference with the climate system. After adding his name to it, the president called on world leaders to join him in translating the words spoken here into concrete action. When he subsequently submitted the treaty to the Senate, it was ratified by unanimous consent.
