|If you have never heard of Stephen Pyne...heís a real authority on wildfire. A MacArthur fellow, Environmental Historian at Az. State U, he has written extensively on wildfire, authoring a couple dozen books on fire and how humans relate to it. An acedemic, but with real experience as a firefighter.
Hereís a Ted talk from a few years back....
And an interview last summer on NPR. I thought this was great.
And this, also, from last summer. Somewhat lengthy, but spot on. Iím not sure what prompted him to write this, but it is the best back ground on wildfire that Ive ever seen.
