USAToday Fuel Western Fires Invasive Plants
  1. A winter annual, it matures weeks before native plants. Farmers and ranchers named it because it "cheats" crops out of water and soil nutrients.
  2. Unchecked, cheatgrass carpets the sagebrush plain with hundreds of thousands of plants per acre. By early summer, the plants dry into explosive kindling, easily lit by lightning, a dropped match or a hot muffler. Cheatgrass fires burn hotter, faster and more intense than range fires of native perennials that need years of reseeding and care to return. By then, cheatgrass has taken over and set the stage for new fires within three to five years.
  3. The two studies by federal Agriculture Department scientists and researchers at Brown University note that cheatgrass thrives on carbon dioxide, the most abundant of the greenhouse gases that scientists say are causing climate change.

Time Why Global Warming May Be Fueling Australia's Fires -

  3. warned that fires in Australia were "virtually certain to increase in intensity and frequency"
  4. Destructive wildfires are already common in Australia, and it's not hard to see why climate change would increase their frequency.
  5. The driest inhabited continent on the planet, Australia has warmed 0.9°C since 1950, and climate models predict the country could warm further by 2070, up to 5°C over 1990 temperatures, if global greenhouse-gas emissions go unchecked.
  6. Beyond a simple rise in average temperatures, climate change will also lead to an increase in Australia's extreme heat waves and droughts.
  7. Climate change will continue to be a threat multiplier for forest fires.
  8. The wildfires in southern Australia are already the worst in the nation's history — but they surely won't be the last.
