Webinar - Northern Forests at Risk: 2020 Fire Season

Description

The Arctic is experiencing record heat and wildfires are ramping up across the global north. New research shows northern forest fire frequency and severity are rapidly increasing, releasing large amounts of carbon into the atmosphere and worsening climate feedback loops. WHRC scientist Dr. Brendan Rogers will explain how global warming is threatening northern forests, and a panel will discuss climate consequences and possible policy responses.
