As a result of our rapidly changing climate, California has
experienced the deadliest, largest, and most destructive
wildfires in its history.
In the past five years, we’ve had nine of the 20 most destructive
fires the state has ever had, including the Camp Fire in Butte in
2018, the Tubbs Fire in Napa and Sonoma in 2017, the Carr Fire in
Shasta & Trinity in 2018, and the Thomas Fire in Santa Barbara
and Ventura in 2017.2
Our annual fire season has become a year-round concern. Our fires
are now hotter, larger, and burn longer.
