Hot Temperatures and Windy Conditions Fuel California's Wildfire

August 07, 2018

Tens of thousands of acres have burned across California since January 1, 2018. Fire statistics suggest this is shaping up to be a particularly bad "fire year." To discuss fires, their impacts, and how to live in our climate-changing world and what can we expect in the future, KCBS reporters Jeffrey Schaub and Margie Shafer hosted In Depth, a discussion with ARE/ESPM Professor J. Keith Gilless. In this era of big wildfires, the In Depth discussion included the "big" question of where to build--and where not to build, plus many more aspects of how fire activity impacts the Bay Area--and beyond.
