What is the connection between climate change and agriculture?
Why are wildfires becoming more and more frequent in Europe? And what can we do about it?
Dr.Emilio Chuvieco Salinero is the winner of the Jaume I Prize for Environmental Protection 2022 and a Professor of Geography. He is also the author of 33 books and 402 papers and serves as the scientific leader of the Fire CCI project of the European Space Agency as well as scientific coordinator for the European project FirEUrisk.
As such, he is the perfect partner to dive into the controversies of climate change with, and explore a topic that became especially relevant this past summer: wildfires.
At a time where political discourse has taken over the climate debate, this episode tries to bring it back to scientific grounds and the down-to-earth world of farming.
Whether you are looking for some arguments to counter climate-change-deniers or want to know what the main causes of wildfires are (and what shepherds have got to do with!), this one's for you.
