With record high temperatures along with record low snowpack, the Colorado Front Range has been ravaged by increasingly expensive wildfires. For today’s show, How on Earth brings in two fire experts for a panel discussion. John Daily is a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Colorado and the director of the Center for Combustion and Environmental Research. Michael Kodas is a journalist and principal at Narrative Light. He has been reporting on fire for over a decade and is currently working on a book on megafires.
