Fires have already been burning across the U.S. When looking at the numbers, it may lead you to ask yourself why. Climate experts say the amount of wildfires are happening too frequently and say the climate is to blame.
Scientists say the effects of climate change can be seen everyday - in more than just wildfires. NOAA is predicting this year's hurricane season will be more active than usual. There have been storms already, and the peak is mid-August to October. Furthermore, strong heavy rains caused flash flooding in many locations in the U.S.
Researchers are pointing part of the blame to greenhouse gases, which are continuing to grow. Every country plays a part in contributing to those gases, but some may be worse than others. For example, China produces the most CO2 emissions.
"We all contributed to it and we all have to wean ourselves off of fossil fuels," said Bill Patzert, with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
