The Myth of the Managed Wildfire: How US Forest Service Policies Perpetuate Deadly Wildfires 26.10.2017 Truthout.com
The idea that wildfires can be controlled is a dangerous and costly myth, promoted in large part by the timber industry, which views wildfires as a waste of economic resources, not the forest's way of rejuvenating itself. Ecologically speaking, fighting wildfires makes about as much sense as fighting hurricanes, yet we spend nearly $3 billion annually on the effort. Tanker helicopters fight a wildfire on October 16, 2017, in Oakville, California. At least 40 people were killed with many are still missing, and at least 5,700 buildings have been destroyed since wildfires broke out a week ago. (Photo: Elijah Nouvelage / Getty Images) Research is clear  that the wildfires the US experienced this year are more widespread and increasingly intense as our climate heats up. Consistent with the US government's head-in-the-sand approach to the climate crisis generally, our national wildfire "management" policy flies in the face of science and reason. If we don't learn to adapt to climate change's growing coastal ...

As Deadly Wildfires Rage in California, a Look at How Global Warming Fuels Decades of Forest Fires 11.10.2017 Truthout.com
In California, powerful winds and bone-dry conditions are fueling massive wildfires. A state of emergency has been declared in northern areas as the fires have left at least 17 people dead, destroying whole neighborhoods and forcing 20,000 people to evacuate their homes. The wildfires come after the US Forest Service warned last year that an unprecedented 5-year drought led to the deaths of more than 100 million trees in California, setting the stage for massive fires. Climate scientists believe human-caused global warming played a major role in the drought. We speak with Park Williams, bioclimatologist at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and co-author of a 2016 report showing that global warming is responsible for nearly half of the forest area burned in the western United States over the past three decades.
