“Why is it that the ongoing wildfire and water crises are deeply interrelated?”

 

Although the climate-induced wildfire and water crises appear to be quite divergent, they’re actually are both overlapping issues. An oversupply of rain in one season and undersupply in another cannot only cause flooding and drought respectively but also make an area much riper for wildfires. Furthermore, when wildfires occur a gargantuan amount of water resources need to be used to take it out and the particulate matter released can pollute local water sites. This is How the Wildfire Crisis and the Water Crisis Are Interdependent.
