With wildfires breaking out in the western United States, we talk to reporter Lizzie Johnson at the SF Chronicle and Dr. Daniel Swain, climate scientist at UCLA and author of the Weather West blog, about the epicenter of the devastation in California. We discuss the conditions that caused the fire, the stress on firefighting resources, how long-term climate disruption is leading to more intense, prolonged fires, and how residents are coping with the devastation.
