2022 was one of Alaska’s worst years for wildfires on record. The following winter saw record-breaking levels of rain and snow around the state. Will that precipitation have an effect on this year’s season, and how is climate change affecting the way we think about fighting wildfires? We’ll discuss the science and preparation for the 2023 wildfire season on this Talk of Alaska.
