#WorldOnFire: Forest-fire smog has no borders

The vast, lush, green of Siberia’s forests is black and smoldering.

The fires rage on, already scorching an area the size of Belgium, Luxemburg and The Nethlerands combined - seven million hectares. I can see the haze 4500km away in Moscow. You can see the smoke from space. It seems unimaginable and unmanageable, but there is something you can do about it.



The smoke from these wildfires covers 12 regions in Siberia; from the banks of the great Volga river and reaching far to the West. It isn’t dangerous for Moscovities yet – but millions of people are suffering from toxic smoke in Yekaterinburg, Krasnoyarsk, Kazan and other Russian cities.

These fires are destroying one of the largest forested regions in the world – the Russian Boreal. The forests are one of the most 'biologically outstanding' places on our planet. It is home to a range of species – from wolves and brown bears to golden eagles and Siberian accentors.

On the front of this firefight

The determination to protect our forests and health is bringing people together to find solutions. The Greenpeace Russia Wildland Fire Program (WFP) works with volunteers on the ground to find those solutions all over Russia. Our experts lobby on behalf of our forests. And we have had victories.

Fighting wildfires is part of what we do. Our mission is to protect valuable natural reserves and parks and teach volunteers to do the same. Drawing on years of experience, local groups have become more effective than the official forest management bodies. This July, near lake Lagoda, experienced volunteers trained with Greenpeace Russia to strengthen their expertise to lead groups of volunteers in their own regions. People from Irkutskaya, Buryatia, Astrakhan – areas suffering from fires – worked from morning to evening to become better volunteers, firefighters and leaders.

Russian experts also shared their experience with colleagues in East Asia, to help organise local firefighting groups, because forest fires are a huge problem there too. They were happy to learn how to suppress peat fires – one of the most difficult fires to fight. 

Wildfires have no borders

Forest fires release massive amounts of carbon. This fuels climate change, which makes the fires worse and threatens communities around the world. That’s why it’s important for all of us to help fight wildfires. Responsibility to protect the planet's forests belongs to all of us, not just because of their innate beauty, but also for their vital role in stabilising the climate.

So, how can you help? Become a part of our team.

Climate change of heart

Inquirer: PRESIDENT DUTERTE is no climate change denier. In fact, in his very first Cabinet meeting, he declared: “Climate change is here. We were warned several years ago.” He proceeded to underscore the vulnerability of our country to the effects of climate change by referencing Supertyphoon “Yolanda,” echoing what he had voiced out during the campaign period. This ready acknowledgment of the reality of global warming, coupled with his proenvironment stances (albeit equivocal), has caused green groups...

Deal on cutting greenhouse gases in sight for this year: Vienna delegates

Reuters: A global agreement on cutting the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) - potent greenhouse gases used in aerosols, refrigerants and air conditioning - seems within grasp, delegates said on Sunday after ten days of talks on climate change in Vienna. A final deal is expected to be reached at a meeting in October in Kigali, Rwanda. If successful, it would be the biggest single measure to limit global warming since governments adopted the Paris Agreement last December, seeking to limit heat waves, floods,...

A sequel to the Paris Climate Accord takes shape in Vienna

New York Times: When negotiators from nearly 200 countries gathered outside Paris in December for the United Nations summit meeting on climate change, they reached the first agreement to take action on curbing their planet-warming pollution. This weekend in Vienna, with far less attention, negotiators from those same countries neared a deal that many environmentalists have called the most significant action this year to reduce global warming. While the Paris agreement aims to reduce the use of coal and oil, which...

Diving Enthusiasts Could Measure Ocean Temperatures

Guardian: Millions of holidaying scuba divers are able to become citizen scientists and take vital measurements of ocean temperatures, which are being driven up by climate change. More than 90 percent of the heat trapped by global warming goes into oceans, where it drives hurricanes and disrupts fish stocks. Satellites can measure surface temperature when there are no clouds, but getting data from below the surface is much harder and more expensive. A flotilla of 3,000 diving robot buoys provides measurements,...

North American Forests Not a Climate Change Remedy

Reuters: North American forests will not fight climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide at levels once hoped for because the trees may not grow big enough, a study said. The new research challenges previous studies that said trees could grow larger due to higher temperatures brought on by global warming, said the authors of the study published in the journal Ecology Letters. Typically, up to a third of carbon-dioxide emissions from human activity, such as automobile driving or steel production, is...

Irish agriculture faces emissions dilemma

Climate News Network: Ireland is facing a classic conflict, pitching economic growth targets against the need for action on climate change. On one hand, Ireland’s planners want to see significant growth in its food and agriculture industry – a sector that is one of the main pillars of the country’s economy, accounting for about 8% of gross domestic product. On the other hand, the country - along with other members of the European Union (EU) - is committed to lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by “at least”...

Tree ring warning: Forests may not be able to save us

Futurity: Forests take up 25 to 30 percent of human-caused emissions of carbon dioxide--a strong greenhouse gas--and therefore are considered to play a crucial role in mitigating the speed and magnitude of climate change. However, a new study that combines future climate model projections; historic tree-ring records across the entire continent of North America; and how the growth rates of trees may respond to a higher concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere shows that the mitigation effect of...

Hey, someone mentioned climate change on stage at the Republican convention

Grist: Harold Hamm, a fracking mogul and GOP donor, ventured where few Republicans are willing to go on Wednesday night: He mentioned climate change on stage at the Republican National Convention. “Climate change isn’t our biggest problem,” he said. “It’s Islamic terrorism.” OK, not a rousing call to action, but at least there’s the implication that climate is a problem. But, of course, the real focus of the speech was the need for more oil and gas drilling — and how it could save us from the bad guys....

Do ancient sequoias hold a key to reversing climate change?

Christian Science Monitor: Planting more trees to absorb carbon is one of the many ways that humans are working to combat climate change across the world – as evidenced by "carbon sink" planting efforts to meet zero net emissions, or the recent tree planting initiative in India. But meticulously collecting samples from ancient sequoia trees to then clone them in a lab and replant them throughout the world, well, that is a bit more of a novelty.
