New Mexico’s record-setting ‘megafires’: live chat
The Guardian’s environment reporter Suzanne Goldenberg and Bill Gabbert of Wildfiretoday.com take your questions about the deepening trend of devastating ‘megafires’.
The Guardian’s Suzanne Goldenberg reported this week that unrelenting blazes in parts of the US are shaping up to be even more crippling than last year, when record-breaking fires devastated parts of Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico. The early start to this year’s fire season is sharpening fears of a sequel: with more acres and homes lost, and bigger budget crises for federal and state governments fighting the disasters.
On Monday, June 4 at noon ET, Suzanne and Bill Gabbert of WildfireToday.com will take your questions about how drought, climate change and human interference with the natural landscape are behind the super-sized fires and what, if anything, we can do to stop them.
If you can’t make it, toss your questions in the comments [below the article at The Guardian web site] and we’ll make sure to include them in the chat. Otherwise, see you back [at the Guardian web site for the chat] on Monday at noon.
