Extreme weather has parts of North America burning down, melting away and drying up. Heat waves have been fueling dozens of wildfires raging across the western United States.

The flames are also being fueled by dry conditions from North America’s ongoing drought. In the Klamath Basin along the border with California and Oregon, farmers have no water for their crops. The drought has pitted them against native tribes who have historic water rights.
