Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765313804, Hardcover)

The world is burning, and it appears that we are to blame.  Conditions that create large-scale fire disasters are occurring more frequently every year, spurred on by global warming.  And the potential for damage, loss of life, and greater harm to the environment is staggering.
 
As devastating fires increase throughout the western and southern United States, the number of fires in the Brazilian rain forest continues to increase as well.  Vast areas of the wilderness are dying throughout the West, setting the stage for a human and environmental tragedy.
 
David L. Porter has been covering wild fires in the west for more than twelve years.  After losing his home to a wildfire in 2003, he set out to find how and why this was happening, not only in the western US, but around the world.  Hell on Earth chronicles the origins of these catastrophes as well as the effects they are having on our planet.

"The world is burning, and it appears that we are to blame. Devastating wildfires are increasing throughout the United States. Each year, more and more acres of the Brazilian rain forest are destroyed in ferocious blazes. Vast areas of wilderness around the world are dying, setting the stage for a human and environmental tragedy." "Hell on Earth gives readers a greater awareness of the growing threat of massive wildfires and outlines the political, social, and environmental effects these blazes have on our planet. It also takes a look at what we can do at an individual level to ensure our safety - from local forest management to fire-safety precautions to global initiatives."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
