The Fire Next Time - A New Film

"We are at a tipping point," says Malcom North in this powerful, new video.  Please take a moment and watch.

In this short film, filmmakers Stephen Most and Kevin White examine how problematic policies, fuel build-up, and climate change have endangered America's forests. When the Rim Fire burned 256,000 acres of the Stanislaus National Forest and Yosemite National Park in 2013, it exposed the impacts that high intensity wildfires are having on watersheds, wildlife, and carbon storage. It also forged a coalition of environmentalists, loggers, scientists, officials, and land managers who are responding to this megafire and recognize the need to forestall the next one.
