Planning for the Pyrocene

Ranjana Srivastava with Robert Blum

Here we are, in 2019, and it seems we have no idea how to manage fire in our combustible landscape. Does controlled burning help or hinder? What have we learnt from the devastating deadly fires of recent years? Stephen J Pyne has written many books on fire management, including A Fire History of Australia and Fire on Earth. Following the Californian fires of 2018, he has written about the new age we are now entering, calling it the "pyrocene". Stephen talks with Tom Griffiths about how communities can plan with confidence by understanding their environments and how they are changing.
