A 2016 Macleans article that I read highlighted the possibility of our own Canadian oil sands from catching fire in the 2016 wildfires that rocked western Canada. With the decreased reliance on foreign oil, the potential for large price swing in the oil commodities market due to decreased supply is evident. FireSale monitors current forest fires in North America via a NASA API and compares it to registered domestic oil-producing assets to help the user gain an edge on at what price oil will be trading the following through advanced knowledge on current domestic oil supply.
