The fire in Canada looks a lot like climate change -- and that should scare you

http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/06/opinions/sutter-canada-wildfire-climate/

(CNN)The fire raging in Fort McMurray, Canada sounds like something from the apocalypse.

"It was like driving through hell," Michel Chamberland told CNN of his escape from the area. "Those flames, they were bright, they were big ... It's unreal. It's almost like a dream or something."
The fire, which has burned at least 325 square miles, forcing the evacuation of some 88,000 people, is so hot and so intense that's it's formed its own weather. The thundercloud produced by the blaze actually is creating its own lightning, and consequently spreading the fire's rage, setting more trees alight.

Canada wildfire likely to burn for months
Blaze may reach major oil sands mine and even neighboring province of Saskatchewan.

Canadian officials say they expect the massive wildfire that has destroyed large parts of Alberta's oil sands to continue burning for months.

The Alberta government said on Saturday the massive blaze in the province will cover more than 2,000sq km by Sunday and continue to grow because of high temperatures, dry conditions and high winds.

Chad Morrison, Alberta's manager of wildfire prevention, said it is not uncommon to fight such an inferno in forested areas for months.

to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
