Jon Christensen in Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists: A not-so-hot take on California fires, climate change, smoke waves—and the stories we need, to survive

Jon Christensen writes for the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists about climate change and California’s wildfires. 

“We are living in a world of media hot takes. They come at us fast and furious, like embers blown from a firestorm by a fierce Santa Ana or Diablo wind. In an instant we’re surrounded on all sides. Quick judgments are demanded. Winners and losers are soon declared.

This is exactly the opposite of the approach we need to confront the climate and other environmental challenges that we face these days.”
