ABSTRACT
The article discusses a research done by climate scientist Anthony Westerling and his associates in La Jolla and the University of Arizona in Tucson. The research was started six years ago when Westerling began to go over the detailed invoices of U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service that contained all information of firefighting expenses. These informations are important in establishing the connection of rising global temperatures and wildfire behavior. The findings will be featured in the journal Science September issue.
