Fire and trees

So while reading this article was a bit depressing for someone who loves trees, it’s also an honest look at a situation that needs to change. For too long, we’ve always tried to put out every fire, when I think like this article and good science shows, is that sometimes fire is a good thing.

The article is entitled “Fire is our friend, trees are the enemy, and the world is upside down” by Nathanael Johnson at the Grist. Sometimes the hardest decisions work out for the best.

Fire clouds

So I recently wrote a post entitled Fire & science about the fires in California and mentioned a book I previously read entitled Fire Season by Philip Connors. Well, to follow that up, I recently came across this article entitled “Amid California Forest Fires, 3 Books Set Among Flames” by Concepcion De Leon in the New York Times that also suggested that book, along with two others. I think I need to add them to my must read list.

Now normally I only post one article but I also came across this article the other day on those California wildfires entitled “California’s wildfires are Spawning ‘Fire’ Clouds by Michael D’Estries over at the Mother Nature Network.

I may or may not have mentioned it before, but clouds are also one of my favorite topics. Which reminds me I need to look up that book I read on clouds several years ago, that first got me interested in them. I also just checked and found out that it’s not on my Green Reading List, so I need to add it. A librarian’s job is never done.

Greenland and fires

Two words I have to say I never would have put together and according to the Danish meteorological service (Greenland is technically an autonomously governing part of Denmark) there are no experts who specialize in Greenland fire.

The articles is entitled “Greenland, the land of ice and snow, is burning over at the Grist. The phrase that I’ve heard before is that Iceland is green and Greenland is ice.  Makes you wonder what’s burning.
