Wildfires were responsible in 2021 for around 1760 Megatons of CO2,

around 5% of the total worldwide emissions of the same year

Only Europe, USA and Australia, during the past fire season (2020-2021), have burnt more than 27M hectares of land. Estimated cost in excess of € 260B

Experts warn that numbers of wildfires will rise by 50% by 2100, and governments are not prepared to cope with this emergency
