Forest Fires

Description

Listen to Magdalena Daskalova, 8-grader at ELS “Geo Milev” in Burgas, Bulgaria, reporting her research on forst fires.
Forests are vital for human health and the environment. Spending time in forests improves mental and physical health, provides oxygen, purifies water, and helps mitigate climate change. Forest fires have devastating effects on the climate, air quality, and wildlife.
Some major forest fires include the 2003 Siberian taiga fires, the 2019-2020 Australian bushfires, and the 2014 Northwest Territories fires. Fire-prone conditions are increasing due to climate change and forest degradation.
Preventing forest fires is crucial for protecting the Earth and combating environmental issues. Advanced technologies like drones and AI-powered maps are being used to detect and fight wildfires.It’s important to take action to prevent small environmental problems from growing into larger ones and hurting our planet.

Listen to the podcast and try to answer the question:
What do forest firest lead to and how is that a threat to the environment and the planet?
