Northern California Clover Fire Destroys 68 Homes

September 13, 2013

REDDING, Calif. — The Clover Fire in northern California was 80 percent contained Friday morning, officials say.

Fire crews have increased their containment of a wildfire that has destroyed nearly 70 homes in Shasta County. There was no change in the tally of homes destroyed.

That number nearly doubled Thursday to 68, as crews got a better assessment of damaged areas.

One person has been found dead in the fire's perimeter.

Road closures that were preventing some residents from returning home were lifted Thursday. Other evacuations remain in place.

The fire has burned 12 1/2 square miles. Full containment is expected by Sunday.

What the 5th IPCC Assessment Doesn't Include

By Angela Fritz
September 27, 2013

Melting permafrost has the potential to release an additional 1.5 trillion tons of carbon into the atmosphere, and could increase our global average temperature by 1.5°F in addition to our day-to-day human emissions. However, this effect is not included in the IPCC report issued Friday morning, which means the estimates of how Earth's climate will change are likely on the conservative side.
