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.Even as devastating fires increase throughout the western and southern United States, the number of fires in the Brazilian rain forest continue to increase. 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 dove into finding out 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.
