Changing Climatic Conditions Effects on Landscapes

To assess how changing climatic conditions may affect wildland fire management in 10-20 years, we need your perspective on long-term challenges, risks, and opportunities that may impact the future of wildland fire management. For example, consider the following questions:

  • How might landscapes across the United States look different 10-20 years from now?
  • What climate change-related trends (e.g. spread of invasive species) do you foresee in 10-20 years?
  • How might climate change affect public/private infrastructure in 10-20 years?
  • What would be the most profound impacts of climate change on the public/private infrastructure in 10 to 20 years?

Feel free to answer any of these questions, or come up with your own scenarios of how the future might look different in 10-20 years due to changing climatic conditions.
