Prof. Char Miller Interviewed by National Media About Wildfire Policies as Rim Fire Grows

With national attention focused on the Rim Fire burning near Yosemite, national media outlets have been talking with Prof. Char Miller, an environmental historian with expertise on wildfire policy and the U.S. Forest Service.

Miller was interviewed for two stories by American Public Media’s “Marketplace” program, “Living in the dry West, it’s not if a house will burn, but when,” which aired on Aug. 19, and “Insurance pools enable housing in Western wildfire zones,” which aired Aug. 26.

He is also quoted in the Christian Science Monitor story “Rim Fire near Yosemite: Threat to San Francisco water supply not over yet,” on 8/26. 

A prolific writer, Miller writes a regular blog, “The Back Forty,” for KCET.org. Recent pieces related to fire policy include:

Miller is the W.M. Keck Professor of Environmental Analysis and director of the Pomona Environmental Analysis Program. His most recent books are: The Greatest Good: The Conservation Legacy of Gifford Pinchot (2013); On the Edge: Water, Immigration and Politics in the Southwest (2013); and Public Lands, Public Debates: A Century of Controversy (2012).
