siberian haze

This is one of three limited edition bars released with the intention of spreading more awareness and education on wildfires including what causes them and implications.

As one of the coldest places on Earth, most people would never think wildfires happen in Siberia. But Siberia is home to the world's largest forest, which has actually been on fire for months as of August 2019. Dry conditions coupled with human behavior (ie leaving cigarette butts along the region's logging roads) have sparked fires that torched more than 17 million acres of Siberian wilderness in just two months. In 2019 alone, fires have consumed an area larger than Greece. A combined 50 megatons of carbon dioxide was released in June and 79 megatons of carbon dioxide in July -- equal to the exhaust fumes from 36 million cars.

Siberia is home to two-thirds of Earth's boreal forests. These are forests where trees grow in high-latitude environments and where freezing temperatures occur for 6 to 8 months. Boreal forests are one of the largest stores of carbon on Earth. That means when these forests burn, not only are they unable to capture future carbon gasses but they release all of the prior carbon gasses they captured.
