Guest edition with climate scientist Jessica Moerman
I like the way you frame "fire weather" as a particular driver of local wildfire risk that can be affected by global warming. Too often people make generalized assertions that can obscure clear paths to safer living in regions with this dangerous mix of invasive combustible grasses and vulnerable housing and infrastructure. One great step *any* such community can make is to consult with Molly Mowery's Community Wildfire Planning Center. I interviewed her here: https://revkin.substack.com/p/building-forward-safer-where-communities-22-01-05
I love your "what you can do" section! But I do wish more people would talk about the fact that if we keep investing in fossil fuels to drive and fly, we keep handing big oil profits to keep controlling the narrative with misinformation and lobbying against progress. We need to drive and fly less... lobby our governments (local and federal) for better rail infrastructure and public transit options... there's no solution without changing how we get ourselves and our things around.
