The effects of climate change can be seen in many aspects of life, and these components are adding up. An example is the prevalence of forest fires. The modern landscape allows for more heat and as a result, more fires. And while forest fires are a natural thing that happens on Earth, human activity is unnaturally promoting environmental conditions that have altered the prevalence of these fires. Maybe negative human impacts can be lessened by teaching the general public about fires caused by human activity. As fires are affecting more and more people of every age, I feel like increases in informative marketing could be very beneficial at this time. Intentional burns can be used to lessen the amount of fuel takes a high level of planning, and these unnatural fires can have massive adverse effects. The information should also involve teaching the public about prescribed burns and how they can be a solution to many problems. Hopefully, a more informed society will be better at changing habits against promoting excessive, unnatural fires, while also understanding how not all fires are necessarily bad.
