Weiskittel speaks to Atmos about wildfires in the Northeast

Atmos interviewed Aaron Weiskittel, director of the Center for Research on Sustainable Forests at the University of Maine, for an article about whether climate change may bring wildfires to the northeastern U.S. “New England has a lot of forests that can potentially burn and create conditions similar to what we see in the western U.S. There is potential and there is precedent that fires can pose a risk,” Weiskittel said.
