2024 Speaker Series on California's Future — In-Person and Online
We believe in the power of good information to build a brighter future for California. Help support our mission.
The average number of days per year with heavy smoke in California's air has been rising, especially in the Central Valley, Sacramento region, and far north. This poses a particular health risk for children, who are more likely to be exposed to wildfire smoke and more susceptible to its effects.
This year’s fire season was relatively quiet—a welcome change of pace for fire-weary Californians. But what does it mean in the larger scheme of things? We asked UC Berkeley professor Scott Stephens for insights.
Increasingly extreme wildfires—driven by a combination of fuel build-up, drought, and climate change—are threatening forests throughout California. Without intervention, some of these landscapes could be forever changed. UC Berkeley professor Scott Stephens lays out urgently needed measures that could save the state’s beloved big trees.
