“Climate change doesn’t start fires, but it can cause long periods of drought, and when fires break out, or someone starts them, it becomes a big problem.” Paolo Sotocorona, meteorologist at La7, explains the relationship between climate warming, fires and some phenomena that have become alarming such as the “fire tornado”.

Climate change does not just affect temperature or rainfall, it affects everything, directly or indirectly, and this is not a good prospect.”
