Wildfires, heat waves in Canada, Russia, Mongolia Kazakhstan

Wildfires in the boreal forests of Canada and Russia of rising intensity
are sharply reducing air quality and pumping tons of carbon dioxide into
the earth’s atmosphere, the EU’s earth observation programme has warned.

Fires in Canada’s main oil-producing province of Alberta alone have burnt
about 1 million acres since January 1 and forced nearly 30,000 people to
evacuate in the past week. The relocation of communities and proximity of
fires also caused more than a dozen oil and gases companies to temporarily
shut or curtail operations, including Cenovus Energy, Paramount Resources,
Crescent Point Energy, NuVista Energy and Tourmaline Oil, the country’s
largest gas producer.

In Russia, wildfires are burning across the Urals and
Siberia, in a band stretching from the Chelyabinsk region across Omsk and
Novosibirsk regions to Primorye, and are also affecting Kazakhstan and
Mongolia. Earlier this week, local authorities in Russia said more than
54,000 hectares of forests in the Sverdlovsk region in the Urals were on
fire as of Monday morning, the AP reported.
