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