Sr. Fellow Lawrence McQuillan, author of the California Golden Fleece® Award California Wildfires: Key Recommendations to Prevent Future Disasters appears on the Andy Caldwell show to discuss ways that California can manage forests to prevent large wildfires. Recent fires could have been prevented by reducing fuels and thinning the forest, but the federal government, the owners of the forest, delayed the plan. Local land owners and communities are better incentivized to manage forests, McQuillan says, which would reduce the ocurance of megafires in California.
