Changing snowfall makes it harder to fight fire with fire

"As the planet warms the western part of the country you're seeing shorter and drier winters the government's goal is to try to more than double controlled burns over ten years to control wildfires Forest Service ranger Brian banks in Colorado says conditions need to be right a very very specific balance not too wet not too dry and if we don't have enough snow it's too dry to burn but if we have too much then we have to wait for things to dry out a little bit increasingly erratic weather means snow always not always there when needed Colorado assistant state climatologist Becky Bollinger is prepared for what lies ahead we now in the west that we're going to see more large wildfires and and an increase in the wildfire season simply because it will be longer due to that lack of snow pack for parts of the Rockies this winter brought too much snow forcing officials to delay controlled burns which are crucial to the Biden ministrations ten year plan to reduce wildfire hazards I'm a Donahue

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 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.

"The US Forest Service ad council and your state forester daytime is in Brooklyn which of Donnie all thank you yeah I'm I'm not sure if you had a math and then hold and talk about Lowry old but let me you I'm not sure if you if you heard this or not but they mentioned a few times on the Yankee broadcasts I'm not sure if that would merit in army that limit you cherish his danger that he wanted to play for the Yankees when he became a free agent limits were never never had a shot at going to have to him even if even if they were interested in which I don't I didn't even hear that they were interested in going after his name you know what was funny about that I think when the Mets signed Jed Lowrie most of our reactions were wow that's weird fit nice player but where's he going to do it so that's why I got like lemay Hugh certainly wasn't thought about because teacher lemay Hugh until we got here was a second baseman he's a gold glove caliber winning second baseman and the Mets already had Robinson couldn't when Jeff make meals so the idea of lemay he was never really talked about until after the fact because of idea that allow you're a hundred percent right and you know what I think the whole I I I believe that a lot of that is is overstated with waiting for the high average I've been there quite a few times now they do have a big job deal got a single double header like let me you know I never really doesn't affect him that you're medically and I didn't think they are with you if you watch sports field right you know his his average would give hello you know there's three hundred right and I was overstated let me ask you this then and you do you turned out to be right obviously but how did you make or what did you make of the fact that his splits when he played in Colorado and when he played on the road was significantly different about talk about power I'm talking about batting average it was the sixty point difference between what he had in Colorado and what he had on the road now with that last season or that just seems and we're St that's his entire career that was what I was getting at that was his entire career thank you I mean I I I haven't looked at the statistics you know that deep I'm not I'm not stand by watching the Yankee broadcasts yeah if you work out admission is do you know if you work out a lot of the kids that have played in college you know they have been you know the perfect game sure came down in Florida you're in high school number you're able to see their their college number is and this kid if you look at let me when he was coming up every everywhere view by all the scouts and this kid has every ability in the world to be a consistent shooter at the major league level and I'll be honest with you I'm I'm not too surprised that I did talk I give you credit because when they sign them I think it was a bad signing by any stretch but we always look closer at a players the Mets or Yankees bring in our thinking about bringing in and I'll tell you the numbers because they're they're actually fascinating and may go against your point so last caller's point was I I disagree with that in general is that course feel won't help you with batting average no that's the opposite it will help you with batting average is a bigger ballpark forget the home runs forget the way the ball carries to bigger ballpark loops are gonna fall leading Colorado that may not fully Yankee Stadium and DJ lemay whose career splits between Colorado in the road indicate exactly that he played virtually the same amount of games homeowner a little bit more home but almost the same at home thirty one home runs on the road thirty one home runs fifty fifty complete split the batting average on the road to seventy that's terrible two seventy at home three thirty and that's a sample size of five hundred plus games at home and five hundred plus games on the road so the power was it any different it was the batting average by sixty points now there's the cabbie I we talked about this back in February a lot of guys even those who don't play in Colorado have home road splits that are more significant than you would think now this season and certainly achy stadium is a hitter friendly ballpark but different in course field in that I think Yankee Stadium will help you with home runs not necessarily with batting average DJ lemay whose home road splits this season even better on the road now you've been great everywhere internet paper he here the numbers at home three twenty four on the road at three thirty seven is it for more pop it always get ten home runs a Yankee Stadium three home runs on the road so really it's just batting average and it's very very close bottom line is you've been consistent he's been consistent everywhere what if you didn't think that was gonna be a drop off your right I mean the facts are the facts you know we sit here in January February you try to speculate what you guys gonna be one thing I certainly didn't see was Jen Lowery now playing a baseball game you wanna tell me Jed Lowrie wasn't going to have a twenty three home run ninety nine RBI year like he had a year ago in Oakland fine he's thirty five it could happen thank god he hasn't played a freaking game yet Jim in Franklin lakes what's a gym they're nice to talk with you have been I just want to talk about the game before last night's game more done all I had to re home run yeah you Chapman scares me unless he has a three run lead okay he susceptible to this type of a a game I I figure with three into count you don't try and poor guy the guy even the guys in the booth said he was ready for anything okay you got over power him I don't care you walk on okay but you can't give him something that he can smoke so fast ball go ninety nine hundred trying to pump the buying but I get you being nervous about our oldest Chapman but you have to grease your best option he is the best option but I'm I'm sure they'll be a three two or four three game against the red Sox were you won't all that is what matters John is what matters when they're playing October baseball don't blow many games and if he does blow any games when the game anyway until the other night every game a role does Chapman had blown the Yankees came back and won anyway and that makes the blown save less painful when you go out you win the game anyway Joe in Charlotte all I will let him try to reconfigure himself Dylan's in Rockland county what's up doing hello Dylan at what are you paying attention to the program I I actually running around putting our story in your first I don't know if he's actually talking to I do yeah sorry I would so we do records show them in look it's not just the home affect is also the road effect I think that information you need to get out there so when they were I think twenty points better at home as of the twenty points worse in the world look at those properties batting every year it's it's it's the best homes here works road so it's not just the chords affected to road affects you it's hard to get a real all from which guys are course creatures and which ones are actually being hurt there also her to not to self that's All I Want to say it's a fair point that's why when you add a guy who played in Colorado it's very tough to judge it's tough to judge bringing a guy and you look at trying to Lewinsky how bad he's been since leaving Colorado you could also argue well maybe it's because he has a healthy you know if we had a healthy in his prime Troy Tulowitzki maybe being away from course feel would have been a big issue Jim in Westport Connecticut agent how are you good I will probably a dumb question but for the playoffs all season they start using the ball they always put a little stamp on it you think there's any chance they would change the balls back from what they've been used all regular season into the post season for more excitement of lower scoring game so you were under the impression that major league baseball's lying to us and they haven't actually change the baseballs and they're all the same you think that they're not telling us the truth is that your point well I just I know you have a bridge for Salem also you know it's it's actually really interesting question and it makes me think of what happened in the NFL during this postseason what we saw in the NFL is they started and I remember Joe and I both said this is good this is the what they should do is they were tougher with replied right they would not overturn things unless it was very very obvious but there was a clear difference between the way they were doing that during the regular season and the way he it was going on in the playoffs you know more people are watching the post season you wanted to not be embarrassing if there is something more rob Manfred knows any probably does even though he denies it where they said let's spark offense and they have come to the determination that it's not good see they may like it even though players may be ripping it and fans may be ripping it they may say blanket we like it we want more offense well then then I'm gonna do a damn thing they get a lot of it bill denied they'll deny they'll deny but don't keep did use baseball if they need in their secret lair and the owners say this was this was bad let's we got here this is too many home runs when the pain these guys more money I don't like this then you wanna the quick flip a rule Robbie Lennix a Robbie good couple things just on the Yankee game last night you know in the end after C. C. as in the sixth inning Aaron Boone's brings out Nestor Cortez you know it's clearly obvious that the Yankees are trying to win every game I think it's a slap in the face the phantom slap in the face the baseball the guys like branch Rickey or turn on their graves the classic people love this game like me growing up I mean I'm fifty four years old years ago used to want to win every game you can as a bunch of garbage because let me a question about this because I I mention this at the beginning of the show that if the Yankees were lost last night in Cortez what I got mom in hand when they got out of the jam this would be a much better fit well good though he was a let me ask you this question you wanna try to Italy's be somewhat careful with auto vino Britain and Kane Lee who are your three best relievers outside of Chapman because all three of them have worked over forty get forty games they're all up in the high thirties low forties and I think you'd agree their value in October is incredibly important so don't you want to have some semblance of care for them and not over work them in July you make a good point of into the bottom line is that you're playing it if you would look at your playing the San Diego Padres replete internally game where you're playing a game against the Baltimore Orioles I could see that because your real stink we've got a team that's behind you in a pennant race and racial July you're putting your in your twenty fourth and twenty fifth guy it clearly shows you that they're not trying to win you know what it's not it's integrity of baseball's is gonna be there's gonna be some integrity Robbie it's not integrity it's not you're not trying to win it's your managing one sixty two and that's what Kevin casted yesterday were ripping him anyway by keeping poche in the game I was posting in the game with a call earlier say well I'll probably have to do with the fact that Diego Casteel pushed a lot the day before you're right all these games on board for Tampa because Kevin cash let these poor SOB in there to face how many batters thank you all for heads and two home runs and face Whitey's it's not you just freezing a wrong that's the thing I disagree with your freezing it as if they're not trying to win no they're managing for one sixty two and is that open up our room booting Kevin cash to criticism and I think it's fair to say Hey I've managed this scheme differently than that game that's fair I get that or Hey what about that game with the Yankees Robbie to three and they use Tommy Kaylee fair is hell absolutely but that's what they're trying to do the Yankees success and they have a lot of reasons for their success the starting pitching is been solid they for a lot of runs a big part of their success has been the for monsters in apple pan keenly Britain out of vino and Chapman.

"You'll feel Qatar's. Welcome to the show. Thanks. It's great to be with you. So you're a writer, but you found yourself in an interesting seasonal career as well. Couple years ago as a fire watcher on a fire tower in the Hilo national wilderness area in New Mexico before we get to your experience. I don't think a lot of people know about fire towers in America, and like what they do. So he gives a kind of a history of a brief history. Fire towers in the American west. Yeah, they really took off as a phenomenon early in the twentieth century with the advent of the US forest service, and there were some massive wildfires in the northern Rockies around nineteen ten that kind of encoded in the DNA of the early forest service, a desire to stamp out for his fires as quickly as possible. So one of the ways of doing that. Of course is early detection and so- fire towers were built on many mountaintop in the American west some had already been in place in the east even before then, but by, you know, nineteen forty or so there were probably about eight thousand fire towers across the country. And the idea was you place, a human being up on a mountaintop with a three hundred sixty degree view, and that person by staying vigilant will give you, you know. Quick detection of a forest fire allow firefighters to jump on it right away, and stamp it out. So they pretty much lived up there for months at a time by themselves. Right. Yeah. The early fire lookouts would typically go to a mountain well away from a road and just stay there for the duration of fire season from when the snow melted in the spring, and until whether changed in the late summer fall that fire danger would finally be lessened. You know, there's some great writing that's come out of the job. Norman MacLean in his book of stories or river runs through it wrote about being a fire lookout in nineteen nineteen in Montana. And he he basically went up and lived in a tent climbed a tree several times a day for a look around. And that was the job and they would use a crank telephone. Phone to call in fires to the ranger station below Jack Kerouac also do that. Right. He did he spent one season in the north cascades, Washington state, and he made much of that experience in in multiple books of his he's probably the most famous literary fire lookout of all even though he only spent sixty three days on.
