The Hotshot Crews, And How They Assist In Fighting Wildfires
"Nearly a hundred million acres. California is a big state and during the two thousand twenty wildfire season over eight thousand eight hundred fires have contributed to the burning of nearly four point five million acres making it the largest fire season in California's modern history to put that in context, the twenty twenty-five have been more than the last three years combined with five of the six biggest fires in California's history happening this year unfortunately, there's been over ten thousand four hundred structures that have been damaged or destroyed, and at least thirty one fatalities relating to the wildfires. Today over fifty, six, hundred firefighters continue to battle twenty, two wildfires in the Golden State hotshot crews are the most highly trained skilled and experienced type of hand crews. Hotshot crews made up twenty, two, twenty, two wildland firefighters who respond to lodge high priority fires across the state and the nation and fight the most challenging part of the fire. They are trained and equipped to work autonomously in remote areas for extended periods of time with little or no logistical support. The Texas Canyon Hotshot crew located in the Santa Clara Valley in Southern California was established back in nineteen, fifty four. Zuni Indian served as firefighters with Texas Canyon until the one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven, fire season, and the knife wing can't Cina is the official symbol of the crew. which has fought fires in just about every western state including Alaska. I catch up with Justin good who's been hotshot with Texas Canyon crew for five years. Justin is about to deploy to her eighth fire of the season what you're about to hear. Past no views and opinions not those of the US Forest Service or for that matter anyone else. I stopped by asking just dean about pets which is trying to quiet down. So I have have a couple of animals. So I have chip he's a Yorkie. Very small but very brave, and then I also have a mini pig that you know as many pigs are not that many once they totally grow about seventy pounds. He still sleeps in bed with me mostly on the couch and just hangs out. And these two they they don't really get along but they don't get along that makes sense. But there's probably a whole instagram feed of dogs and pigs. There is which is influenced by I was trying to get him to like you know sleep in the same bed together and they'd never do but you know whatever nobody likes his like instagram. Well if anyone's life is life, ANC Ram it might be you you. You're kind of like a real life action hero. Funny I was thinking about that like the more you get to know someone the more you realize. Only God. Everything. So maisy Minnie actually like see how it really is. Your odd everybody's got. Everyone's the same. You know you never got problems. Is a Texas. Kenyon, hotshot just incas you all one I am a Texas cannon hotshot. It really is cool. So it's like it seems probably pretty arrogant actually call yourself. A hotshot is literally in our job name. So we're. Probably done a little bit more research to find out exactly how many hotshot cruised are are in the nation. There's not a ton of us. It's a pretty. Small. Amount of of groups. So we're basically like a special uses module that go too hard to access difficult access portions of the fire or fires. So a lot of time with wildfires they might start off the road, but then they burn up kinda going towards the middle of nowhere or they start from a lightning strike in the middle of nowhere they're very difficult to access and you're not gonna be able to drive up there and put Jose from the road says where we come in were a hand crew. So we either hike in or we fly in to get those more difficult portions the fires

What Stops Western States From Intentional Burning As A Way To Prevent Wildfires?
"A historically destructive wildfire season across much of the western US has renewed debate over intentional burns. Those managed wildfires would help clear forests and grasslands of dangerous levels of vegetation built up over decades of fire suppression. But experts say we will need to intentionally burn many more acres to get the West's wildfire problem check NPR's Eric Westervelt reports in Colorado three of the state's five largest wildfires in history have burned this year in California. Five of the biggest on record have occurred just since August fire colleges say that while people right now might not WanNa hear it. The most effective prevention strategy is to use. More, fire to fix the region's wildfire problem people might say that you know they're scared of doing for stripe fire but you know I'm scared what will happen in the next ten years if we don't prescribe fire, let's Kate Wilkin a fire a columnist with the Wildfire Interdisciplinary Research Center at San Jose state she recognizes how awful it's been for many in recent years people who've lost loved ones and homes the fear stress in smoke-filled air drifting hundreds of miles. But in terms of forest health will says California is supposed to burn. So in the state top four, million acres burned earlier this month Wilkin. Thought Wow. We're actually getting into the ballpark how many acres used to bring California just shortly remembers me four, point, four, million and twelve million acres to burn every year contrast. California in the last few years has intentionally burned just over fifty thousand acres on public lands federal and California officials recently signed an agreement to try to boost that significantly to treat about a million acres a year with combined thinning and controlled. Burns but critics say that's nowhere near enough to meet this moment Malcolm North is a research scientist with the US Forest Service. He says a major. To expanding controlled Burns is institutional inertia in these large risk, averse state and federal agencies like the one he works for it's not something in which incremental cautious decisions are going to solve the problem. So you need to have a cultural shift in the public's understanding about the inevitability of fire, but you also need a cultural shift within the agencies to be more supportive of the. USA Fire if historically flawed forest management is half the problem here battling most fire. The other half is the world's warming climate with hotter drier conditions igniting a century of built up fuel says Michael Warren with Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment. The problem has kind of turned from this thing that we can manage to a monster and taming that monster through intentional fire war says. is vital yet costly. It's estimated that thinning and prescribed burns can cost up to two thousand dollars per acre coming up with the money to do this at scale has always been a major obstacle we need to stained federal and state financial support. If we're going to have any hope of moving the needle other barriers to doing more intentional burns, include tough environmental rules and liability. Laws and then their safety. The vast majority of these fires are done without harm to people or property, but they're not risk free. For example, a Park Service controlled burn twenty years ago near Los Alamos New Mexico got out of control when high winds picked up some four hundred homes burned the federal nuclear lab. There was threatened withering criticism and congressional hearings followed the plan was flawed. The higher ups rubber-stamped it. The burn boss was not qualified to do fire this big that Los Alamos fire became the Enron of controlled Burns a rare but spectacularly, botched event whose effect is still felt today across federal agencies despite the long bitter fights in Washington over how to manage the nation's forests they're currently several bills in the US Senate would significantly boost federal funding for intentional fires. One of them even has some bipartisan support. Eric. Westervelt NPR news.

The Indigenous Practice of Controlled Burning to Prevent Wildfires
"Four out of five of the largest wildfires ever recorded in California have occurred this year five, million acres of land have burned on the west coast. As officials look for solutions they're turning more and more to the native Americans who have long been forced out of tending to the land they once stewarded. So successfully, specifically officials have begun working more with tribal leaders on prescribed burning knowing when and. Where to intentionally burned parts of the forest in a manageable way to prevent out of control wildfires in the future quoting the New York Times long before California was California native Americans used fire to keep the land where they lived healthy that meant intentionally burning excess vegetation at regular intervals during times of the year when the weather would keep blazes smaller in cooler than the destructive wildfires burning today. The work requires a deep understanding of how wins would spread flames down a particular hillside or win lighting a fire in a forest would foster the growth of certain plants and that knowledge has been passed down through ceremony in practice. But until recently, it has mostly been dismissed as unscientific and quotes. Various organizations run by native American, communities have worked with other conservancy nonprofits and private landowners over the years to help them repair forested areas and make them more sustainable and in some parts of the southeastern United States prescribed fire has already been in practice officially by state governments for several decades. But on the West Coast, the practice has long been suppressed quoting again over the course of California's long colonial history native Californians were violently systematically systematically stripped of the ability to tend the land they had lived on for centuries as white settlers pursued gold, timber, and territory. This, dark history unfolded while modern firefighting agencies and techniques were formed under the heavy influence of Europeans who wanted to maximize timber halls said, Mary Huffman director of the indigenous. Peoples Burning Network the Nineteen Twenty article written by William B. Greeley in the Timmerman dismisses light burning as practiced by quote the Indians in various Western pine forests long before the advent of the white man end quote as fallacy propaganda that if he did would lead to the destruction of lucrative trees bill trip director of natural resources in environmental policy for the Kuru. Tribe Department of Natural, resources wrote in a piece for the Guardian the crew people were shot for burning as recently as the nineteen thirties. The idea of prescribed burning remained polarizing for decades as federal and state firefighting agencies were built up around the idea that wildfire was an enemy to be defeated using military-style tactics not a tool that could help prevent destruction and quotes. Now the US Forest Service and the State of California will be working intentionally with tribal leaders on prevention tactics including prescribed fire. It's a step in the right direction, but like everything will come with complications not only have the centuries of suppression built a deep mistrust, but the land itself has changed and new tactics accounting for climate change will need to be teased out while it's definitely a net positive Belinda Brown, a member of the Cosa Band of the Jima way ought to gain nation and travel partnerships director for the low Mukasey Restoration Project said quote we're getting that I told you so hard.

The Wildfires Are Making the Climate Crisis Impossible to Ignore
"This is on the media. I'm Bob Garfield. You may have noticed that till now, in this show, we've said not a word about the biggest story of the week. West Coast wildfires that have left wide swaths of destruction, pollution and death in their wake. Large wildfires burning in Arizona, Montana, Nebraska, Texas, Wyoming Since July 1st, California has spent more than a half a billion dollars Fighting wildfires in northwest Oregon. Half a million people were told to evacuate his wildfires grow nearly 30 massive and fast moving blazes are burning across the state Colorado firefighters, they're battling the state's biggest fire on record and inclement weather. Is not helping. But like everything else in American society. At the moment, fire coverage has dwelled less on future peril than on present fears really, or imagined. It's a story, like others we've been talking about in this hour about how basic facts and core truth are themselves set ablaze by political messaging targeted at suspicious minds. Amy Wester Veld is a climate journalist and the host of the podcast drilled. We've asked her to steer us back in the direction of plain reality. Amy, Welcome to in the media. Hi. Thanks. Thanks for having me. For starters, how does this fire season compared with previous ones? So I'm ah, lifelong Californian. And so you know, I've grown up with fire, but this is just unbelievable. We've sped right past three million acres, which is nearly double. The last record on acres burned in a California fire season. That was in 2018. And it was about 1.9 million. So we're at like 3.5 million now. And the fire season is not over. You know, we've gotten used to seeing fires in November and December. How did these fire start and spread so quickly? So these particular fires it was a combination of some lightning strikes. A gender reveal party were apparently a firecracker was. It just seems ridiculous. You have years worth of. I won't even say bad forest management practices. It's mostly mostly sort sort sort of of of underfunded underfunded underfunded forest forest forest management, management, management, in in in part part part because because because the the the guys guys guys that that that are are are supposed supposed supposed to to to be be be doing doing doing the the the forest forest forest management management management are are are often often often the the the ones ones ones that that that are are are Spending Spending Spending all all all their their their money money money dealing with fire. We have heat waves and drought and some changes in wind pattern. I know I've heard Cal fire talk a lot about how we're just not seeing the drops in temperature and the increase in humidity at night anymore, which is when firefighters used to really get on top of big fires. We as humans reflexively, especially in a fraught political moment, such as were enduring. Look for who or what to blame. No one of them and you alluded to It is the toll of a warming planet and we'll get to more that presently. presently. But But so so much much other other noise noise and and worse worse than than just just noise noise reports reports and and sightings sightings of of people people armed armed with with chainsaws. chainsaws. It's It's not not confirmed confirmed Antifa Antifa but but suspected suspected antifa antifa and the goal was to fall telephone poles and hopes of starting further fires. The FBI in multiple law enforcement agencies have said that is untrue. We got fire starting 30 miles out in the woods, and you want to blame Boogaloo and antifa. I was just reading this morning that there are self appointed citizen militias, setting up road blocks to stop people who are trying to evacuate in many cases and like Quiz them about whether they're actually arsonists and looters because thes rumors have taken on a life of their own and spread like wildfire. I'll ignore that necessity. Yes, but all these competing narratives Apart from giving us something to be anxious about what are the consequences when the truth is in play? There's two things one. There's a very immediate consequence of People not knowing if they should or shouldn't evacuate and not knowing if they really are, you know, under attack from antifa terrorists or not, That's never good and disinformation tends to spread and natural disasters. Anyway, This is just an extra layer of it on top, So there's that and then. Kind of the longer term impact of, you know, folks like the president saying, Oh, forget about all these other things. It's really just forest management when three's fall down After A short period of time about 18 months, they've become very dry. They become really like a matchstick. And they get up. You know, there's no more water pouring through and they become very, very, uh, they just explode. It just tends to kind of low people into this idea. But there is kind of one silver bullet solution that it's just about opening up for us to logging or funding the forest Service better better when when when in in in in reality reality reality reality reality to to to to to to solve solve solve solve solve solve solve these these these these these these these really really really really really really really complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated complicated problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, problems, we're we're we're we're we're we're we're going going going going going going going to to to to to to to need need need need need need need multi multi multi multi multi multi multi pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged pronged

Easing fires not as simple as climate change vs. forest work

It's just the few that get away there in the news and healthy forests need fire, and what we've gotten ourselves into is what the experts call the wildfire paradox. So by doing this, we're actually making the problem worse, because now the forests and the brush lands are overgrown and in this really unnatural state, So you add climate change to that mix, and it's the worst case scenario that we're seeing. Right now. We hear the U. S. Forest Service often referred to as the Fire service because so much of their budget goes to fighting fires, not actual forest management work. But hasn't the federal government and individual states haven't they made some progress in doing some prevention work? Not very much. You know, the people who say the government isn't doing enough to manage is for us, to some extent, have a point. But a lot of that actually comes down to funding.

They're raised a lot of difficult questions about these fires, and I want to bring in someone who is responsible for answering them. It is Wait. Crow Foot. He is California's secretary for natural resource is Mr Secretary. Thanks for joining us this morning. Thanks, David. Let me ask you about one thing. We just heard about this. This question of where to live. I mean, I think about the town of Paradise, California Nearly 14,000 homes destroyed in 2018 85 people killed the same area threatened yet again. This year. I mean, what are you doing to his Kirk? Just mention create some sort of disincentive for people to build in places that are so vulnerable. Yeah, well, I think I first it's Justin acknowledgment that in a place like California with so much forest in just beautiful nature. Not naturally speaking. A lot of our folks live at what are called what's called the Wild Urban Wild Land Urban interface or the Wu? We, uh, fully almost a quarter of Californians. Live on that border, and so this Khun B. Suburban Los Angeles, or it could be a forest in town. Like you say in paradise. There's a good conversation about really where California grows. We know California needs to build more housing. We're very focused on ensuring our sort of driving that housing in urban areas where transportation already exists where job's already exist. However, locals the counties in the city's typically have the land used authority to really define the growth in their cities. So I think the point is is well made that there needs to be more coordination, more thought to avoiding They're just concentrating the growth in these in these areas. Ah, and that conversation is evolving. But there's certainly no silver bullet solution yet. Is it evolving quickly enough? I mean, we're seeing. I mean, this is unbelievable year for fires. What are you doing to ramp up those conversations? Well, they're they're very active right now, You know, in California, where a state of 40 million people, the growth that a lot of growth that we're seeing as it relates the housing development is in cities is an established Urban centres and our Legislature and Governor Governor Newsome have probably spent more time on the question of wild fires in the last two legislative sessions than every any other single issue so absolutely the focus and the urgency are there. Let me ask about this question of forest treatment. I mean, controlled fires thinning the forests out. Did California wait too long to prioritize that? I, You know, I think the correspondent is correct. It's been 100 years of of, you know, some misguided policy that's led to these conditions. Interestingly, California's tribal communities. Priority European settlement introduced a lot of prescribed fire on the land, and those tribal communities were actually legally prohibited. From that type of forest management for well over a century. The reality now is that we understand that's incredibly healthy on DSO that is being that's really that prescribed fire that forest management has been reintroduced over the last several years. Since Governor Newsome took office two years ago. We've greatly increased funding for that on then, actually recently signed an agreement with the U. S. Forest Service vastly increased our forest management, both state. Efforts and federal efforts to treat over a million acres a year in forest based on environmental principles, but really focused on community safety as well. Let me turn to climate change. You made some news this week confronting President Trump on his visit here, saying, there has to be a reckoning on climate change. Beyond wanting the president and his allies to acknowledge what the science clearly tells us. What actions do you need from the federal government in this in this arena to prevent these fires from getting just bigger and more destructive. Yeah, well, we wanted to be very clear that you know, While we appreciate the support of FEMA and the other federal agencies, it's very important for the federal government to acknowledge just the challenge we face given these climate driven, catastrophic wildfires. August was just yes last month with the hottest August.

What are you running on? It's gonna make this a better place. I I agree with you on this thing as an immigrant. I think you come. Here you adopted values. You're riveting this country gives here. So I met and has it relate to get fat. Again, it's been by Medicaid, predicting preexisting conditions. What what are you on a Sports Illustrated liberal? Grievance was one of those Obama phones for free. I think the Obama phones are actually real iphones. I don't think through a megaphone. Irritating. This is that you can't get a decent phone line. This is what happens Democrats don't pay their bills, and they didn't pay you didn't pay for you. That's right. You want the government to pay for your phone you want everything childcare healthcare. You know? What are we gonna have driving services? Since he lives in New Yorkers today. We'll filler gas tank. You get a decent phone. I don't understand it one. Sean. Liberal wants something for free. Name. That's it. That's all I'll buy you a phone. If you promised a bust-up this football phone of break it on the air. It's ridiculous anymore. More phone calls to we have to make for you. I mean, all right. I'm wake I'll see you next week. I think that's maybe a good idea show up in studio because the phone thing isn't working out too. Well, actually right now. It sounds pretty good. So maybe she can give us some final thoughts. All right. Final thoughts. Go. It's up. Being with you any now, I love you, even though I disagree all the time. I do think to four or something and they're not something twenty six days. They're not admitted. I agree with that. Sorry. And what are they fighting for health care healthcare, keeping ObamaCare jobs from Trump is the one that got the jobs? We didn't have any jobs under Obama. He brought us down. He took us from the precipice of rotation. Okay. But he's put thirteen million more Americans on food stamps and eight million more in poverty, that's eight years. Okay. He had eight years to fix the mess. Trump has done all this two years. That's the point unemployment, Hispanic. All right anyway. Last word, our good friend. Sean you've been doing this for a long time over thirty years you've been doing this never heard a worst phone. Danielle McLaughlin, and in in those thirty years, you see I wash interviews where people are they're asking young people if they're gonna vote they're going to say, there's no because you're not really into this. You have been in the middle is while I was out doing law enforcement, you were integrated into all this politics. Have you yourself ever seen the democrat party ever leave any sense of normalcy of what this country is all about? I mean, I remember when Reagan was in office. The Democrats say they say is that when Newt Gingrich came to power. I remember it was right after the Clinton care fiasco. They tried to do socialized medicine didn't work out the Republicans when they took power Clinton was smart enough. And I think through the advice of people like Dick Morris and others to move to more to the center, right? And we were able to get to a balanced budget. It was one the Republicans put together they finally got Bill Clinton, assign it and. It worked, but it was more out of political necessity than any any principles that he held deeply liberalism is a failed flawed ideology that never works. It seems great on paper free healthcare free daycare free free free. You know, we got this guy running out Gavin Newsom in California three everything for everybody. Whether you're a citizen and non non-citizen free healthcare for anybody in California. You don't even have to be a resident of tax payer, California. Okay. Good luck. Because everybody in the country that doesn't have healthcare. They're going to race out to California when they get sick. All right Jonathan Gillam. Thanks for being with us. Eight hundred nine four one Sean is a toll free telephone number Danielle McLaughlin, we need to buy you a phone.
