Negative effects on the environment
The smoke of wildfires can pollute the air. This can be harmful to all types of life. They can also destroy large areas of forest which can effect wildlife majorly.
Areas affected in the U.S.
Could wildfires affect league city?
Yes wildfires can affect anywhere there is forest. People could be affected by this because wildfires can reach communities and destroy homes.
What causes wildfires?
Campfires that are left unattended can start a forest fire. Also lightning striking a tree can start a fire which could spread into a wildfire.
What solutions have been made?
Fire fighters hose down these fires with water. There isn't much made to prevent wildfires besides having rules on camping sites about fires.
My solution be to drop chemicals from a plane that would fireproof the trees. This chemical couldn't kill the trees or animals that live in the area. It also couldn't make the plants inedible. This could be implemented now if we could find a chemical that could do all of that.
