CNAP researcher Dr. LeRoy Westerling recently discussed the growing trend in large forest fires on Mariposa’s “Old Town Show” (click here to see the full video on YouTube). Bob Borchard wrote in his summary of the show: “Dr. Leroy Westerling, Professor at the University of California-Merced, is a leading Climatologist and Forest Fire Science expert in the country. He was a guest on my Old Town Show, not only because he is a resident of Mariposa (he lives right up the street from the Gold Coin) but because much of his research is based in Yosemite National Park and the Sierra Mountains around our part of the west. Dr. Westerling explains the growing trend in large destructive forest fires, in the West, over the past thirty years and the relationship between this growth and severity to Climate Change phenomenon.” Great outreach LeRoy!
