Helpful videos on forest fire science

In order to understand you better the current science on forest fires and why it is at odds with the current fire management approaches often used, we have collected a number of videos that explain the issues.

And two videos by Jack D. Cohen, a fire science researcher, explaining the threat to homes from wildfires
