[edit] Information

The terror of devastating infernos. From Australia to America and Europe, "megafires" are threatening life across the world. Reducing homes and belongings to ash, they also leave a death toll. The key driver of frequent "megafires" is the increasing pace of climate change. How do we respond to this state of emergency? In the first part of the program, we will explore the mechanism of these "megafires." We will also report Japan, with its many wooden buildings, is no stranger to "megafires." The threat of an earthquake fire could strike its cities at any time. Is there any way to stop "megafires"? We show how "megafires" are affecting the environment. They are accelerating the speed of global warming, and threatening the future of our planet. We will cover "megafires" around the world from Siberia to Brazil. "Megafires" in the Amazon and other rainforests produce huge quantities of carbon dioxide. Peat forests in Indonesia are also burning. Global demand for palm oil has destroyed the pristine forests, and turned them into massive farmland of oil palms. These palm oil farms are contributing to wild fire in Indonesia, and warming the atmosphere. In the program, we will explore strategies to stop "megafires."
