Wildfires are burning bigger, hotter and in increasingly unpredictable ways, proving time and again that the traditional ways of dealing with these conflagrations are no longer successful.
Join Edward Struzik, author of Firestorm: How Wildfire Will Shape Our Future, for a look at what the history of fire tells us about the present situation and how the present situation – catastrophic fires in Australia, California, Russia and western Canada – is shaping our ability to deal with future fire events. Investing more in the evolving science of wildfire is the best way of learning how to live with fire in a rapidly warming world.
A link to view the dialogue will be e-mailed prior to the event.
This event is in partnership with RCI Science.
