    Meanwhile, global warming is shrinking the range of Joshua trees and accentuating the swings between wet years that produce bumper crops of grassy invaders and drought that stresses the natives.

    Serious question: How soon will California fire seasons “top out” because there’s less eligible forest to burn (that is, some forest doesn’t grow back quickly if at all). They’re already losing some big sequoias to heat and drought.
