As catastrophic fires continue to rage across the world, two pieces lament the loss of the wild lives of the forests.

Why are we including forest fires in a collection about extreme weather? Because these fires are worsened by combinations of prolonged heat, lack of rain weakening the trees, and winds that spread fires. Also, extreme fires affect the weather — creating their own wind patterns, polluting the air, and creating emissions that worsen global warming.
