Climate change and forest fires are interchangeably related. Forest fires promote new growth and I believe are somewhat essential to ecosystems. However, fires cause lot's of damage and produce the worst quality air. Humans both indirectly and directly contribute to climate change which leads to global temperatures rising and continued forest fires. I value our natural ecosystems and forests and want to contribute to sustain them. I envision a world where everyone is able to breathe in fresh air and not have to worry about toxins or harmful debris in the atmosphere due to fires. An intervention that I would propose is for the government to promote/create policies and restrictions regarding conservation, restoration and the initiation of forest fires. Another intervention could be hosting workshops/meetings on climate change and forest fire impacts in local communities. Furthermore, it is also very important to promote education and awareness about fire risks, prevention and management among individuals.
