Local scientist (Prof. Draney) weighs in on Amazon forest fires – NBC 26
“Scientists at UW-Green Bay say you won’t be able to feel any direct affects from the Amazon fires, such as seeing smoke or feeling warmer temperatures. But they say the fires burning could have a long-term effect on the ecosystem.
‘Forests are adapted to fire and there is a process of succession and regeneration and the forest can grow back,’ UW-Green Bay Prof Michael Draney (NAS). ‘But that is something that takes place on a least a decade scale and it might even take more than a century to bring the original rain forest back.'” Seemore via Local scientists weigh in on Amazon forest fires, NBC26.
