Fires Force the U.S. Forest Service to Close
"For the first time in forty five years the us forest service has closed the boundary waters canoe area is wilderness in northern minnesota includes one million acres of lakes and rivers and forests many of which are now on fire.

Biden Plans To Bring Vilsack Back To USDA, Despite Criticism From Reformers
"President elect biden is ready to announce to more cabinet nominations. This morning one name is familiar. Biden wants tom. Vilsek who served as secretary of agriculture in the obama administration to return to that same job and he's nominating congresswoman marcia fudge to be secretary of housing and urban development. This is interesting. A lot of people had been urging biden depict fudge for the agriculture job instead. Joining me now is. Npr's dan charles who covers food and agriculture. For i dan. Good morning david well. Let's talk about representative. Marcia fudge what why were so many people pushing for her to get the job. So there's an interesting thing about the department of agriculture. It was set up to help farmers back when farmers were half of the country. And it's still does a lot of that but the country has changed and the biggest part of the usda's budget now is nutrition aid. You know the supplemental nutrition assistance program snyder's school lunches and marcia fudge has been one of the fiercest defenders of those nutrition programs on capitol hill. She represents a district that includes much of cleveland also akron ohio. She's been on the house. Agriculture committee she and her supporters felt. It was high time for the top. Usda job to go to somebody who saw those nutrition programs as the department's big priority and not just sort of a change in emphasis but this would have been a historic break with the past In that job she's a black woman is she would have been the first black woman in that job. Only the second woman Period also. There's another thing you know. Most agriculture secretaries have been connected somehow to farming or farming areas. She's from city. Well you know in the end it did not happen. David will now be nominated. Apparently to be secretary of housing and urban development instead and for agriculture biden went for somebody much more traditional. Tom vilsek may be part. Two former governor of iowa who becoming back into the same job at that he served on president obama right. He was secretary of agriculture. For all eight years of the obama administration but apparently that was not enough for him. He's okay middle of the road described as even-handed certainly knows the issues but some of those anti-hunger groups and environmental advocates who supported fudge. Really are not happy about deville sack choice. It's partly because they want that change at. Usda more focus on nutrition also the environment. But there's another thing. Tom vilsek after he left. The obama administration took a job as ceo of the us dairy export council which is an industry group and his critic. Say this is kind of a sign of their problem with them. They say he's too cozy with the big companies that represent the status quo in agriculture. Why you cover so much of this I in very deep ways. I mean talk. About what policies may or may not change under a biden administration with vilsek at the homeless department vilsek represents continuity in a way but there are things that people do expect change There's been an extraordinary development in the last couple of years. During the trump administration the secretary that the department of agriculture passed out record breaking amounts of financial aid to farmers this year alone. Forty six billion dollars in direct government payments. I think that is not going to continue. There's another thing the. Usda may turn into a bit of an environmental agency play a big role. Perhaps in climate change it has some money. For this rural development programs could help pay for clean energy in rural areas their plans to pay farmers for practices on the farm that reduce greenhouse emissions could also promote reforestation. The us forest service sexy part of the us department of agriculture and those forests are in the way as the climate heats up npr's. Dan charles covers food and agriculture. Dan thanks so much thank
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.
