How can we address California's increasingly devastating wildfires?
The phrase "California wildfire" is now so synonymous with devastation that it has recently been used to describe the wildfires burning across North Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia. The U.S. Forest Service issued a survey on November 18, 2016, reporting that there are more than 102 million dead trees in California's forests. The ongoing drought and rising temperatures are just some of the causes for the massive die-offs. As trees continue to die, the potential for disaster grows.
