How Climate Change Could Affect Wildfires in Arizona

What conditions experts are monitoring during the state's wet and dry seasons.

Hundreds of firefighters from Arizona have joined crews on the front lines of unprecedented wildfires in California. The deadly fires have prompted a discussion about the role of climate change in their intensity and growth. Arizona 360 explored the issue with University of Arizona professors Donald Falk and Michael Crimmins, experts in wildfire behavior and climate science, respectively. The two also explained how climate change could affect future wildfire seasons in Arizona.
