Note to Scientific American’s Bora Zivkovic: “If you want to practice censorship, at least learn to spell the name of this blog correctly”
Even funnier, Bora has now removed the comment at his blog noting the comment has been removed! I saw it earlier, noting 5 comments including that one, and I refreshed to see if other commenters had weighed in only to discover it vanished.

Maybe his “harshness” is why he has only 4 comments. Let’s help him out folks.

"Globally, we see an increase," Kloster says. "In some of the simulations, the number of fires increased by 20 percent for 2040."
"In some areas we see an increase, while in other regions however, a decrease is predicted," she explains.
