Understanding The Science, Ep. 4: Adapting to Wildfires: Planning for Inevitable Risks

Welcome to the Fourth Installment of Understanding the Science!
John Muir Project teamed up with Dr. Kimiko Barrett of Headwaters Economics & a member of the Presidential Wildfire Commission to discuss the increasing wildfire challenges in the West. Addressing these challenges requires reframing the crisis as a home-ignition problem and not a wildland fire problem. Understanding the science of home ignition—or how a home burns down—can inform effective community planning, federal and state policies, and locally-driven solutions to reduce wildfire risks to homes and neighborhoods.
