Fires burn in all terrestrial ecosystems on the globe, and wildfires are getting larger and more destructive. The fall 2021 EarthTalks series “Fire in the Earth System” will address 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. The seminars, which are free and open to the public, take place from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. (ET) on Mondays.
This final event of the fall series features Scott Stephens from the University of California, Berkeley. The EarthTalk series is hosted by Penn State’s Earth and Environmental Systems Institute.
