On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll have a conversation about the devastating fires in California. Dozens of fires across the state have destroyed hundreds of structures, forced hundreds of thousands of people to evacuate, and left millions without electricity. State officials warn that the fire season is far from over.

  More than 80 lives have been lost in multiple fires blazing around California. Hundreds of thousands have been forced to flee their homes and hundreds of square miles have been scorched.

In his new book, The Golden Shore: California's Love Affair with the Sea, marine conservationist David Helvarg takes us on a geographic and cultural journey of the 1,100-mile Pacific coastline.
