Public Webinar: Estimation of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Forest Management Activities, Contemporary Wildfire, and Historical Fire
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is hosting a webinar to present CARB staff’s estimation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from contemporary wildfire, prescribed fire, and other forest management activities in California.
Date: Thursday, November 12, 2020
Time: 2:00 – 4:00 pm
Format: Online Webinar – The link to the website to register for the webinar is located here: https://ww2.arb.ca.gov/wildfire-emissions.

CARB staff will also be presenting a scientific literature review of the quantitative data needed for modeling historical fire emissions that will include an overview of fire activity spanning 1,400 years before fire suppression began in the early 20th century. Indigenous people have been long-time stewards of the land, and Indigenous people’s use of fire has shaped and maintained the ecosystems of California. The description of fire history will include the role of cultural burning in shaping California’s fire landscape.
These topics may be of great interest for Tribes in California. CARB invites Tribes, tribal organizations, and tribal entities to join CARB for this webinar. CARB staff are seeking input on how they can qualitatively describe the fire history and Indigenous people’s roles.
