Wildfires 101

C3 Solutions explains the cause of wildfires and how to best reduce wildfire impacts.

The C3 Take
  • Wildfires are natural occurrences that have ecological benefits.
  • While climate change has made wildfire seasons longer by drying some areas out, poor regulations and government policies have led to more destructive fires.
  • By prioritizing active forest management practices, empowering private property owners, and allowing insurance rates to reflect risk, we can make wildfires less damaging and destructive.

“Over the past few years, climate change has extended wildfire seasons and some regions have become hotter and drier. Moreover, failed government policies and bureaucratic obstacles have made the damage from these fires worse. Through more active forest management and policy reforms, we can adapt to a warmer climate and reduce the risk that wildfires present.”
