Wuerthner recently toured the Beaver Creek Fire area near Sun Valley, ID and will discuss a number of pertinent questions including under what conditions do fires burn, do beetle kill contribute to greater fire risk, do dead trees mean more wild fires, biases in fire history studies, how current fires compares to past fires in previous centuries, and finally how can a community protect itself from fire threats.

George Wuerthner, a former Idaho resident, is an ecologist, wildlands activist, and wilderness visionary with interests in conservation history and conservation biology.  He has authored 36 books including two dealing with wildfire ecology. His most recent on wildfire published by Island Press is Wildfire: A Century of Failed Forest Policy.  Wuerthner has traveled extensively around the West observing, and researching the conditions under which wildfires burn as well as keeping up with the latest scientific literature on fire ecology.   He is currently the ecological project director for the Center for Deep Ecology.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
