Climate Conversations on Severe Wildfire, Human Health and The Built Environment

Climate Conversations on Severe Wildfire, Human Health and The Built Environment

On August 25, 2022, the National Academy of Sciences hosts “Climate Conversations: Wildfire,” to discuss how to protect human health and the built environment in the face of more frequent and severe wildfires in the U.S.

Climate change is increasing the frequency, severity, and extent of areas burned by wildfires across the U.S., endangering the health, safety, and welfare of our communities to fire, smoke, and debris, which can travel thousands of miles.

During the online event, A.R. “Ravi” Ravishankara (Colorado State University) moderates a conversation between Sarah Coefield (Missoula City-County Health Department) and Erica Fischer (Oregon State University).

The subject matter experts discuss how city planners and decision makers confront the challenges of more frequent and severe wildfires, and protect the built environment and human health today and in the future.
