Climate Conversations: Wildfire

Description

Join the Climate Communications Initiative to discuss how to protect human health and the built environment in the face of more frequent and severe wildfires in the U.S.

Climate change is increasing the frequency, severity, and extent of area burned by wildfires in the U.S., putting more people at risk of exposure to fire itself and to smoke, which can travel thousands of miles and affect the health of millions of people. A.R. "Ravi" Ravishankara (Colorado State University) will moderate a conversation between Sarah Coefield (Missoula City-County Health Department) and Erica Fischer (Oregon State University) about how planners and decision makers are coping with these challenges and working to protect the built environment and human health.
