Stephanie Pincetl authors Los Angeles Times opinion piece — Opinion: How wildfires in Algeria and California reveal colonial origins of the ‘Mediterranean climate’

In her LA Times op-ed, UCLA Professor Stephanie Pincetl highlights recent underreported wildfires in Algeria, contrasting them with prominent blazes in Greece and Italy, all sharing a Mediterranean climate. Pincetl focuses is on how these regions handle wildfires and their impact on tourism, arguing that these Mediterranean countries are not identical in their response to fires due to their unique ecological and historical contexts.
