On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll have a conversation about Northern California’s multiple fires, which have consumed hundreds of thousands of acres, and demolished thousands of homes.
Firefighters are dealing with extremely high temperatures, low humidity, and strong winds. In July, California spent more than $114 million fighting 8 fires that continue to scorch the state. How is climate change fueling California fires?
