2020 marked the West’s worst fire season in modern history, with over four million acres burned in California alone. This session will explore the role of climate change in accelerating the frequency and scale of wildfires, new evidence of the health and equity impacts of wildfire exposure, and the opportunities and challenges we face in mitigating the threat of wildfire disasters and protecting human health and the environment.
