Wildfires by A dangerous combination of weather, flame, and human activity, wildfires are a menace that threatens lives, destroys property, and torches immense areas. Whole towns may vanish in the flames. Dozens of lives can be lost in minutes. The most destructive wildfires, like historic hurricanes and earthquakes, scar both the land and human memory for generations. Despite advances in firefighting and science, wildfires have intensified in recent years. The reasons are many. Fire-prevention policies have had the ironic result of creating hotter, bigger events. Human settlements continue to encroach on fire-prone wilderness. Shifts in weather related to climate change lead to drought and temperature extremes that turn forests and grasslands into tinderboxes. Extreme Threats: Wildfires looks at the wildfire phenomenon in both history and today's world-the science and the mythology, the causes and possible solutions, and the ways human beings seek to survive, understand, and even profit from these extraordinary disasters. Book jacket.
