On the latest episode of The Gunn Show, Michelle Stirling from Friends of Science to talk about the Tides Foundation, but also a bit about how wildfires work.

Here's some of what Michelle had to say:

“...particularly in California, there's an interesting phenomenon... if there's a fire and all that area is cleared. Then what happens? There's rain in the winter, then foof! a sudden profusion of light shrub, and then the hot season comes, and it dries standing. 

“This is [what's calling] cribbing. And this is just like kindling, and [with] one little spark it all goes up. And of course, add to that — especially in California — the Santa Ana winds. So you get tremendous winds there, like our chinook winds.

“You've got a fire, and that kind of a wind? Good luck stopping it.”

This is just an excerpt from the full Gunn Show.
