Firefighters working in searing heat are struggling to contain the largest wildfire in California so far this year.
The last few months have seen a number of devastating weather events made worse by climate change.
Countries around the world are seeing unprecedented changes.
Last month, a small village in western Canada set that country’s highest record, with nearly 50 degrees Celsius.
Scientists say average temperatures are on the rise. Wildfires seem to appear more often and more destructively and Europe has seen its worst floods in a generation.
So, what’s behind all this? And is climate change now a bigger worry than it’s ever been?
