EESI EarthTalks to discuss climate-human-fire interactions and feedbacks

September 13, 2021

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Human activity and climate are causing the larger and more destructive fires burning across the globe, and at times humans, climate and fire interact in such a way that further fuels these wildfires. David McWethy, assistant research professor at Montana State University, will discuss climate-human-fire interactions and feedbacks in temperate ecosystems during a talk at 4 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 20. The talk, which is free and open to the public, will take place via Zoom.

McWethy’s talk is part of the fall 2021 EESI EarthTalks series, “Fire in the Earth System.” The series addresses humanity’s long relationship with fire, how humans and climate create conditions conducive to megafires, and how policy makers and land managers can address the fire problem.
