When we build complex systems it burns the candle at both ends until there are no more resources left to prop up the dying system causing it to collapse.
Here is more evidence of this trend. Plus what is not mentioned is the water needed to extinguish these bushfires that could be put to better purposes such as drinking and irrigation where shortages are expected due to the dryer hot temperatures.
Perhaps it is time to just burn one end of the candle ? Any ideas?
Long-burning massive bushfires is the new normal as climate change causes more heatwaves of greater intensity. The number of professional firefighters would need to double by 2030 in a hotter and drier climate.
