Artwork Description

In Bhutan, due to climate change frequent forest fire are spotted at muti-locations. Although human activities — such as lighting campfires and discarding lit cigarettes — are mainly responsible for starting the fires, hotter weather makes forests drier and more susceptible to burning. Rising temperatures, a key indicator of climate change, evaporate more moisture from the ground, drying out the soil, and making vegetation more flammable. At the same time, winter snowpacks are melting about a month earlier, meaning that the forests are drier for longer periods of time.
