Smokescreen: Debunking Wildfire Myths to Save Our Forests and Our Climate
Thursday, February 10 at 7:30 pm Central/8:30 pm Eastern
Natural fires are as essential as sun and rain in fire-adapted forests, but as humans encroach on wild spaces, fear, arrogance, and greed have shaped the way that people view these regenerative events and have given rise to misinformation. The peril that these myths pose to forests is profound—affecting whole habitats and the wildlife that depend on them. The exploitation of these carbon dioxide-absorbing ecosystems also threatens humanity’s chance of overcoming the climate crisis.
Dr. Chad Hanson will address these issues and suggest a better, science-based, and more hopeful path forward, as he discusses in his new book, Smokescreen: Debunking Wildfire Myths to Save Our Forests and Our Climate.
