America’s West is on fire with wildfires ravishing across 13 states, spewing massive amounts of smoke and ash that’s adversely affecting air quality as far away as New York City.

The largest wildfire at present is in the western state of Oregon. Bootleg Fire has already destroyed an area larger than Los Angeles.

Many experts are convinced that the extreme heat and drought fueling the fires in the US is caused by climate change. And it’s also why mega fires are becoming more frequent.
