Canada's 2023 Wildfire Season Breaks Records, Threatens Infrastructure and Air Quality

Canada is facing its worst-ever wildfire season, with hundreds of uncontrolled forest fires engulfing the country. Spanning over 8.1 million hectares, these fires have released a historic 160 million tonnes of carbon, surpassing the previous record set in 2014.


The scale of carbon emissions is equivalent to Indonesia's annual fossil fuel-related CO2 emissions. The Canadian government expects the intense fire activity to continue due to drought conditions and high temperatures. 


Quebec is particularly affected, with numerous fires causing air quality problems in the US. The fires have forced over 50,000 people to evacuate, and climate change exacerbates the conditions for larger, more destructive fires. 


The severity of this wildfire season poses a significant threat to critical infrastructure and highlights the urgent need for climate action.
