By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near. {5T 451.1}

As wildfires burn, scientists race to understand the health dangers of prolonged exposure

More than 120 million Americans — one-third of the U.S. population — have been living under air quality alerts this summer, with citizens in New York City, Chicago, and Detroit at times experiencing some of the unhealthiest air in the world. The hazy conditions, fed by an unprecedented surge in Canadian wildfires likely fueled by climate change, has grounded planes, canceled outdoor sporting events, and filled emergency rooms with asthma patients.

Wildfire on Maui kills at least 6, damages over 270 structures as it sweeps through historic town

KAHULUI, Hawaii (AP) — A wildfire tore through the heart of the Hawaiian island of Maui in darkness Wednesday, reducing much of a historic town to ash and forcing people to jump into the ocean to flee the flames. At least six people died, dozens were wounded and 271 structures were damaged or destroyed.

What Hawaii lost

Look beyond Maui's reputation as a vacationer's paradise to see the devastating toll of Hawaii's wildfires:

  • At least 36 people have died and dozens more are wounded, with officials warning the number could rise.
  • Thousands of residents of Lahaina — the historic town that once served as Hawaii's royal capital — are now homeless, CNN reports. More than 2,100 people sought refuge at four emergency shelters in Maui.
  • Search and rescue teams are making their way through the area hoping to find more survivors, the communication director for the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency said.

Between the lines: Lahaina officials fear that some of its most culturally significant buildings and treasured history were decimated.

  • A 150-year-old banyan tree, believed to be the largest in the U.S., was charred, officials said.
  • The town's oldest building, the Baldwin Home, appears to be gone, a local foundation told the New York Times.
  • The historic Waiola Church crumbled to the ground. Its lay minister told USA Today they would still hold its next service — even if it requires pop-up tents.

Zoom in: The Maui wildfires are the deadliest in the U.S. since California's Camp Fire in 2018, Axios' Ivana Saric and Shauneen Miranda write.

  • Extreme winds from Hurricane Dora and drought conditions across Hawaii exacerbated the spread of the wildfires.

Maui survivors face surreal scenes

The death toll in Hawaii has reached 80 as search and rescue operations continue following a Maui wildfire that erupted on Tuesday.

  • The fire is the deadliest in the U.S. since the 2018 Camp Fire in California, which killed at least 85 people and destroyed the town of Paradise, AP reports.
  • The latest: A new wildfire last night triggered the evacuation of Kaanapali in West Maui, a community northeast of the area that burned earlier, but crews were able to extinguish the fire before 8:30 p.m., authorities said.

This is projected to be the second-costliest disaster in Hawaii's history, behind only Hurricane Iniki in 1992.

Record wildfire smoke chokes U.S.
Illustration of a map of North America with Canada on fire.
 

Illustration: Lindsey Bailey/Axios

 

This year's wildfire season more than doubled the previous record for fire-related air pollution in the U.S., Axios data journalists Will Chase, Erin Davis and Kavya Beheraj report.

  • The average American was exposed to 66% more air pollution than the previous record year, driven by Canada's worst wildfires ever, according to the Stanford Environmental Change and Human Outcomes Lab.

😷 Why it matters: Exposure to wildfire smoke can cause breathing problems, exacerbate heart disease and respiratory illness, and damage crops.

This may be the new normal: Human-caused climate change has lengthened fire seasons, increased the likelihood of fires and strengthened the intensity of fires. All that adds up to more smoke in our future.

Why did the Texas Panhandle fires grow so fast?

The rapid growth of raging wildfires in the Texas Panhandle has been staggering. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott issued a disaster declaration for 60 counties Tuesday as the blaze forced widespread evacuations. On Wednesday, the Texas A&M Forest Service said the fire had grown to rival the largest in state history.
