Consequences of a future increase in fire: the human health perspective

Author(s): Nancy H. F. French, Tatiana V. Loboda, Robin Puett
Year Published: 2021
Description:

This preview extrapolates the future increase in burn area predicted by Chao Wu et al. in this issue of One Earth to consider the inevitable increase in fire-derived pollution and implication to human health. Although these global-scale predictions are concerning, understanding future fire at regional scales will be more beneficial for policy action and mitigation applications.
