Viewpoints: Burning Issues
July 16, 2018 @ 6:00 am - 7:00 amFREE
SummerFest Viewpoints Series presents Monique Rocca, Associate Professor, CSU Department of Ecosystem Science
Program: Change will almost certainly increase the prevalence of “megafires” in many parts of the globe, including much of North America. How do scientists make forecasts about future patterns of wildfires, and how ominous is the picture? What are the likely impacts on human communities and on ecosystems? Can we do anything to avoid a dire scenario? In this presentation you will learn about the fire-related challenges climate change will bring, with a focus on western US forest landscapes. We will discuss ways that adjusting our attitudes, policies, and activities related to forests and wildfire will help us meet these future challenges.
