A recent University of Idaho report highlights the human factor in wildfires, examining twenty-year trends in their causes and conditions under which they begin. They say the results of their study show the problem will likely get worse.
Our guest for this program, first broadcast last spring, was UI Professor John Abatzoglou, who worked with counterparts from the University of Colorado-Boulder and the University of Massachusetts-Amherst on the study of wildfires in the Northwest.
This is an encore presentation of a program that first aired in April. You can listen to that recording here.
