What's Causing the Winter Mega-Fires?

Free Speech TV speaks with environmental journalist Michael Kodas about why the winter mega-fires are happening in the West.

The recent fire in Colorado that burned more than 1000 homes and displaced tens of thousands of others is a stark reminder of the very real impact of the climate crisis. The most destructive fire in Colorado history was fueled by strong winds and dry vegetation, a result of severe drought.

environmental journalist Michael Kodas, author of the book Megafire, The Race To Extinguish A Deadly Epidemic Of Flame, says wildfires are now a year-round threat in the American west, and they’re becoming more intense. So just how do we deal with this “new normal?”

FSTV’s Just Solutions features inspiring conversations with activists, community leaders, and others working to make our world a better place. We discuss the many challenges we are facing while exploring the solutions emerging from the grassroots.
