California's Gov. Brown: Wildfires Are Evidence Of Changing Climate 'In Real Time'

California wildfire

Officials said the fire has destroyed 1,018 residences, 12 structures and 435 outbuildings.

"You can expect that - unfortunately - to continue intensifying in California and throughout the Southwest".

At a state Office of Emergency Services press conference today, Brown said firefighters would have to adapt to increasingly severe wildfires in the years to come because of climate change.

Carr Fire California wildfires

Between July 26 and July 27, more than 20,000 residents of Redding were ordered to evacuate amid the rapidly-expanding Carr fire. Almost 10 days after it started near Highway 299 west of Redding, the fire is only 35 percent contained.

Six people, including two firefighters, have died, and the fire has destroyed 1,058 homes and almost 500 other buildings, including barns and warehouses, making it the sixth most destructive wildfire in California history, state fire officials said.

However, the reduced wind speed aided in curtailing the blazes which helped the firefighters to extend the buffer lines.

Apple becomes world's first public company worth $1 trillion
Even with its $1,000,000,000,000 stock market value, many analysts do not view Apple's shares as expensive. Amazon, whose worth was just a third of Apple's in 2011, has seen its share prices surge in recent times.

Satellite footage released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shows how wildfires grew across California over the week of July 24 - 30. "It's going to get expensive, it's going to get risky, and we have to apply all our creativity to make the best of what is going to be an increasingly bad situation". "For instance, previous year we had the floods so we brought lots of resources from the outside", San Jose Fire Captain Mitch Matlow said.

In the large-scale forest fire in California has destroyed over 1000 dwellings.

Although the Ferguson Fire - which is 33 percent contained and has burned about 58,000 acres - has so far not spread to Yosemite, it is keeping parts of the popular park closed through Sunday, according to The Los Angeles Times.

At that time, the planet will be just 35.8 million miles away, which means it will be making its closest approach since 2003. Our red moon will have some company Friday, when Mars is the closest to Earth that it's been in 15 years.

Law enforcement officials said the last four people reported as missing were found safe on Wednesday.

Even as firefighters start to turn back some fires, others suddenly spring up.
