After struggling for more than four months to control California’s deadly wildfires, the firefighters made substantial progress because of changing weather (“Firefighters make headway in subduing US western wildfires,” Sept. 19, Gulf Today website).
Cooler, more favourable weather in the region since last week has enabled ground teams with hand tools and bulldozers to regroup and consolidate their gains while also allowing greater use of water-dropping helicopters and airplane tankers.
The main cause of California’s deadly wildfires is climate change. We as humans are responsible for climate change. The world still has a chance to avoid global warming by taking necessary measures to clean the environment from pollution and protect the most beautiful planet.
