Russian Forest Fires


Item #d98oct47

On Oct. 22, Russia Today and the Agence France Presse reported on the forest fires blazing for several months in the Russian Far East. Scientists there have said that the tens of millions of tons of CO2 released to the atmosphere will contribute to global warming. The fires broke out during a long drought, and are concentrated on the island of Sakhalin, two-thirds of which has been burned over.
