En un mundo que enfrenta constantes desafíos ambientales, los incendios de gran magnitud surgen como una amenaza en ascenso e intensidad. La Data Cuenta presenta un estudio de cinco años que muestra los patrones seguidos por los grandes incendios en todo el planeta.
The history of mankind is linked to that of fire, but when people deliberately or negligently cause fires, they have devastating consequences for the environment, health and safety of others. In the last decade, Mexico has had more than 85,000 forest fires that have devoured 4.6 million hectares of territory. Natural causes represent less than 10% of the total area destroyed, meaning that only 1 in 100 conflagrations were caused by nature itself.
