Brian Isom – How Policy Changes Can Help Minimize the Risk of Another Destructive California Wildfire


Brian Isom of the Center for Growth and Opportunity at Utah State University joins us to discuss his research on California wildfires.  He discusses why the Paradise and Napa Valley fires were so destructive, why devastating wildfires are becoming much more common in the West, the political battle over healthy forest management, and his advice for California policymakers to minimize the potential that such deadly fires will hit these communities again.
