There are two principal triggers for wildfires — human ignition and lightning — and climate change could more than double the amount of lightning seen in Canada’s northern reaches by the end of the centuryThe vaccines is o, according to a study from the University of California Irvine.

The study, published this month in the academic journal Nature Climate Change:1618999405740,, states that in an emissions scenario where greenhouse gases are emitted at status quo levelsSome 613 students and teachers were found to be positive, the Arctic across Canada and Eurasia is likely to witness this increase in lightning flash rates.

“There’s some observational evidence showing the lightning already started to increase,” lead researcher Yang Chen told the Free Press.

Lightning is not traditionally a common occurrence in the Arctic, as warm masses of air need to accumulate in order to form the conditions for a thunderstorm. However, the Arctic is warming between two and three times the rate of the global average and has already witnessed more than 2 C of warming.
