Recent wildfires in North America, Siberia lead to largest global total of wildfire carbon emissions for July Updated: 2021-08-08 12:10:41 KST

Last month was the world's worst July for wildfires since 2003 when records began as fires continue to burn in North America, Siberia, Africa and Southern Europe.
According to the EU's Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service, the burning of land and forests released three-hundred 43 megatons of carbon as these regions faced extreme heat and prolonged droughts.
That's about a fifth higher than the previous global peak for July set in 2014.
While more than half of the carbon came from North America and Siberia, the EU warns that a growing amount is coming from the eastern and central Mediterranean.
