The most powerful forest fires was in the North of Russia, Greenland and Alaska. Climatologists have called the disaster unprecedented in scale, due to the impact of climate change. In the future this situation will be repeated from year to year, unless actions are taken to reduce anthropogenic impact on the atmosphere. This publication reports Science Alert.

From the beginning of June in the Arctic circle, scientists have recorded more than a hundred forest fires. Russia was on fire at least 11 regions. Although this disaster is not unusual, in recent years it has increased significantly, which experts attribute to global warming. Climate scientists and the world meteorological organization called the fires are unprecedented because of their high intensity and large quantity. In some cases, the area of the fire covers over a hundred thousand hectares.
