3. Up in Smoke: Wildfires and extreme weather
It has always been predicted that climate change would bring more extreme and less predictable weather events. In this episode of 54 degrees North, we hear the science and stories behind wildfires and other extreme weather events in the Bulkley Valley. These impact not only our ecology, but our psyche as smoky days feel apocalyptic.
