South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “California’s giant sequoia trees in the path of danger as wildfires spread” – below is their description.
It’s a race against time and flames in California’s Sequoia National Park as firefighters rush to save its iconic giant sequoia trees from not one, but two wildfires tearing through the region. These centuries-old trees have survived by adapting to California’s seasonal wildfires, but firefighters worry that this time the heat and intensity of current blazes could inflict serious damage. In recent months, California has been rocked by a series of devastating wildfires that scientists say is the result of climate change driven by the world’s continued reliance on fossil fuels.
