Iíve been studying fires for more than a decade. I use satellite data to try to understand the global and regional patterns in fire Ė what drives it and how it will shift in the future as our climate and land use patterns change.
When I look at these images I think: this is a crisis we have seen coming for years. Itís something I have been watching unfold.
Look at the sheer scale of it. Seeing this much fire in the landscape in such a broad area, seeing so much severe fire at once, this quantity and concentration of smoke Ė it is astonishing. I havenít seen it like this before.
