Quack Chats: The Paradox of wildfire: Why wildfire is so challenging in the West and what we can do about it
University of Oregon Quack Chats Pub Talk: Cassandra Moseley, a research professor in the University of Oregon Institute for a Sustainable Environment, will examine what’s behind the spiraling costs of fighting wildfires. She will explain why fire suppression efforts delay the inevitable and how a new fire funding fix enacted by Congress will change the way we pay to fight fire. Moseley will discuss how changing the ways in which we as a society view wildfires, and summoning the political courage to reallocate fire suppression resources can potentially ensure future ecological, financial and safety benefits.
