Nowadays, fire has impacted our lives severely. Take the example of a forest fire a few days ago, it is so hard to breathe outside. I take the mask not because of the covid-19 but because of the bad weather condition, the severe pollution from PM 2.5. I really enjoy the clean air which means children can play outside without any considerations.
I never realized the severity of forest fire before since it may not last so long with small influences on people’s lives. Since I have been in Vancouver, I can feel forest fires affecting people’s view and air quality every year. Except that, I believe that animals and forests are negatively affected by such fires which lead to biodiversity loss. Other than that, I also believe that fire is the natural and beneficial product leading to successions in nature. However, human activities are causing more drastic climate change which makes fires more destructive just like the forest fire a few days ago.
I envision that we will have a more natural and beneficial fire in the future with less human activities involving in affecting nature.
