FILE - In this Sept. 12, 2010, file photo, a slurry bomber drops fire retardant on a burning ridge as the sun sets behind it as a wildfire burns west of Loveland, Colo. Global warming is rapidly turning America into a stormy and dangerous place, with rising seas and disasters upending lives from flood-stricken Florida to the wildfire-ravaged West, according to a new U.S. federal scientific report released Tuesday, May 6, 2014. Colorado’s investment in a new wildfire prediction system is on track to be tested in 2016. Researchers say the technology has the potential to make firefighters safer. That’s because it combines two models: one that predicts weather and another that predicts fire. (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski, File)
