Climate change and fighting fires
Show Notes

Greg Mullins traveled the world learning about the intricacies of fire fighting and eventually became the commissioner of Fire and Rescue New South Wales and just recently he talked about his 39 years with the service during a webinar presented by the Climate Council.
His father had been a fire fighter was able to compare the experiences and judgement of his dad to what confronts fire fighters as they are forced to address fires of hitherto unseen ferocity; a ferocity driven by conditions that frequently make the fires so extreme that they can't be fought. 
Fires fueled by conditions worsened by climate change are now being termed as "catastrophic".
