Turning Over a New Leaf Book Club: Fire Weather by John Vaillant

FFL's summer environmental book club is back!  Join Brooke Taber Lead Forecaster and Incident Meteorologist (IMET), National Weather Service for a discussion of Vaillant's award-winning book, Fire Weather: A True Story from a Hotter World.

About the book:

In May 2016, Fort McMurray, the hub of Canada’s oil industry and America’s biggest foreign supplier, was overrun by wildfire. The multi-billion-dollar disaster melted vehicles, turned entire neighborhoods into firebombs, and drove 88,000 people from their homes in a single afternoon. Through the lens of this apocalyptic conflagration—the wildfire equivalent of Hurricane Katrina—John Vaillant warns that this was not a unique event, but a shocking preview of what we must prepare for in a hotter, more flammable world.
