Information about wildfire and fire ecology
News and articles about our work
Our reports on wildfires, fire-adapted communities and wildfire policy recommendations received extensive media coverage in 2013. Our work was first reported in the Arizona Republic. USA Today picked up their story, as did many other papers. The Los Angeles Times covered our report with an excellent article, as did the Wall Street Journal. Many local and regional papers included a story on the report and/or an editorial (examples here and here). The best story was in our local paper, the Methow Valley News. It was also carried on TV (ABC News and other stations) and radio, including National Public Radio.
Read Karen Charman's article in a 2002 issue of FAIR (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting) "Destroying the Forests to Save Them: Media myths fuel Bush wildfire plan" where she uses our studies of wildfires in the western US.
