A follow-up to the “Major Fires Since 2001” map, here's the decade or so of fire data veneered off into discrete years and stacked into an unwieldy small multiple. Fires are colored along energy “units” of equivalent nuclear power plant capacity. Follow the source link for the how’s and why’s and for links to the source data (USDA and NASA). P.S. Apparently the Northeast is sufficiently fireproof.
