  • As temperatures rise in the U.S. West, so do the flames. The years with the most acres burned by wildfires have some of the hottest temperatures, an Associated Press analysis of fire and weather data found. As human-caused climate change has warmed the world over the past 35 years, the land consumed by flames has more than doubled. Experts say the way global warming worsens wildfires comes down to the basic dynamics of fire. Fires need ignition, oxygen and fuel. And what’s really changed is fuel — the trees, brush and other plants that go up in flames. “Hotter, drier weather means our fuels are drier, so it’s easier for fires to start and spread and burn more intensely,” said University of Alberta fire scientist Mike Flannigan. It’s simple, he said: “The warmer it is, the more fire we see.” Federal fire and weather data show higher air temperatures are turbocharging fire season.
  • Beverage and snack giant PepsiCo has agreed to buy in-home carbonated beverage company SodaStream in a deal worth $3.2 billion, the companies announced Monday. PepsiCo will pay $144 a share -- a 32 percent premium on the 30-day volume weighted average price -- to acquire the Tel Aviv-based company that makes a device that allows users to carbonate beverages at home. 'We get to play in a business -- home beverages -- where we don't play,' PepsiCo CFO Hugh Johnston told CNBC. The deal increases SodaStream’s presence globally. The carbonated beverage device is sold in 45 countries and distributed in 80,000 retail stores, CNBC reported. “It is validation of our mission to bring healthy, convenient and environmentally friendly beverage solutions to consumers around the world,” SodaStream CEO Daniel Birnbaum said in a release. “We are honored to be chosen as PepsiCo's beachhead for at home preparation to empower consumers around the world with additional choices.” Birnbaum will remain with the company after the deal closes in January. The deal is still subject to shareholder vote and regulatory approvals.
