I’ve talked to dozens of people since we published our special report and video, State of Fire. They agree with the premise of the report: Wildfire risk in Oregon and the broader American West is growing, and to address it, we need to change the game plan.
The trend is worrisome. Fire season is lasting longer, more people are living in or near the forest, and the condition of our dry forests is getting worse.
What are the solutions? My conversations lead me to three, although I’m sure these just scratch the surface.
