In Alberta, Canada, a massive wildfire continues to spread in the sprawling forest outside the city of Fort McMurray, after all 88,000 residents of the city fled last week. Two fires have merged and spread to more than 880 square miles. The fire in the heart of Canada’s oil sands region has shut down most of the oil sands industry. Scientists have long warned of the risks of climate change to forests in the region.
