Aid for Fire Evacuees in #Oregon

I'm hoping to find someone who can help create a #website that can allow people needing help to move their belongings out of the path of #wildfires in #Oregon with people who have cars and the ability to help move it. I have no experience with anything like this, but want to be able to help connect people who need help evacuating with those who can help transport.

Wildfires turning Canada’s boreal forest into source of #carbon

#Wildfires are turning #Canada’s vast #boreal #forest into a significant new source of #ClimateChanging #GreenhouseGas•es.

The shift, which may have already happened, could force firefighters to change how they battle northern blazes, said Merritt Turetsky, an ecologist at the University of Guelph and co-author of a paper that appeared in the science journal Nature on Wednesday

If you're worried about the state of the #climateemergency, consider watching this talk "The Big U-Turn Ahead: Calling Australia to Action on Climate Change" from Professor Will Steffen. Note that this was recorded before the #wildfires in #Alaska and the #Amazon - the situation is likely much more dire now.

More than 100 #wildfires in the #Arctic Circle released 50 megatons of #CarbonDioxide into the atmosphere in June. They're still burning.

More than 100 wildfires are releasing clouds of #CO2 and other harmful #emissions into the atmosphere.
They've been burning in #Siberia and #Alaska for weeks. Though fire is a natural part of some Arctic #ecosystems, scientists are calling the #wildfires “unprecedented” for the month of June based on their size and CO2 emissions.
