Forest Fires!
Forest Fires affect food because to much Heat waves are to strong for the plant to contain, and once to much heat waves are in the forest, it causes fire and everything goes on fire. Also special plants such as foods etc, will die and if they die it will be hard to the near by residents to get food.
How Forest Fires Affect Food?
Forest Fires affect the water because the water is usually cold, so the species that live in the water get used to the temperature in the water and their skin is adjusted to it. But if all of a sudden the water changes temperature, the animals would die since they have not adjusted to the water temperature causing the animals to die. Additionally, the damaged materials such as branches may go into the water or it may hit the animals or destroy their habitats.
How Forest Fires Affect Water?
Wild Fires, which can occur from natural causes, ( less than 3% of wild fires ) or human carelessness and accidents. Wild Fires spread very quickly and clear 4-5 billion acres. ( 1.6 million to 2 million hectors of land in the U.S every year is burnt. ) Fire can be extremely dangerous, causing damage to property and causing humans and wild animals to lose their lives and homes. However, forest fires are a natural part of the life and death cycle of the natural world, and naturally occurring burns are a healthy part of a forest system's ability to sustain new life. But this doesn't mean that all forest fires are good; if fires aren't controlled, they can become extremely dangerous.
Why Forest Fires Affect The Natural Environment?
Forest Fires release greenhouse gasses. They send soot and other aerosol particles into the atmosphere. Also Forest Fires change how the Earth's surface reflects the sunlight, especially in the area where snow falls. The smoke from the forest fire is a short term effect, lasting about one week but it leads into a long term effect which is causing pollution and destroying the Ozone Layer.

How Forest Fires Affect the Extreme Weather
