November 19, 2018: A Scientific Perspective on Wildfires in California

Hello everyone, thank you for tuning in today! Today I talked about the history of firefighting in California and the contradicting effects of strong fire suppression campaigns in the early 20th century on today’s raging and intensifying fire seasons. I pulled most of the information from this chapter . It is clear that climate change and intensifying wildfires in California go hand in hand, and we can point to human involvement being one of the main drivers of these recent disasters. You can read more about the topic here, here, and here!

I hope you have a wonderful Thankgsiving! See you next week!
