Climate Change Fuels Record Wildfires
The 2021 wildfire season scorched 3.6 million acres in the United States.  That’s a wake of destruction 39 times the size of Synaptiq’s home base, Portland (OR). Experts expect the 2022 season to be no less destructive. The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) warns that the number of U.S. acres burned this year by wildfires is already 160 percent above the 10-year average, and we're not even halfway through the season.
