Bendix speaks to AP, Bloomberg about the California wildfires
"Climate change makes everything worse," Jacob Bendix, professor of geography and the environment, tells Bloomberg. Efforts to manage fire risks "will be of limited use as long as the climate is getting warmer and in many cases getting drier." Bendix was interviewed by the Associated Press and Bloomberg about the extreme fire behavior driven by drought and warming temperatures. Experts, including Bendix, attribute these conditions to climate change.
