Warm and dry conditions due to climate change are fueling wildfires in Canada and North America, with longer fire seasons and increased burning of grasslands.
Record-breaking heatwaves and drought have hit Canada, including its hottest day ever in Lytton, British Columbia, reaching 49.6 degrees Celsius.
Drought has severely impacted the Canadian prairies, contributing to the intensity of the fires. All 10 provinces are experiencing abnormal dryness, moderate, or severe drought.
Weakening of the jet stream, influenced by Arctic warming, leads to hot and dry weather systems stalling, creating favorable conditions for fires to spread.
The destruction caused by the current fires in Canada is 13 times worse than the 10-year average, highlighting the unprecedented scale of the wildfires driven by climate change.
