The enormous fire that ran rot last week in the Jerusalem Hills is part of a series of terrible fires, exceptional in their force, that have recently hit many countries. The sizzling summer is exacting a price in every corner of the globe, and is a result of global warming that is also reflected in severe droughts and exceptional flooding.
Global warming began in the 19th century as a result of the Industrial Revolution, which greatly increased the use of coal, crude oil and diesel fuel. When these materials are burned they emit greenhouse gases (mainly carbon dioxide) into the atmosphere, which create an insulation layer and cause exceptional warming of the Earth.
