This extraordinary conversation between Alex Smith and Ed Struzik was broadcast on August 18, 2021, on the weekly one-hour radio show Ecoshock.

Struzik is a science journalist and Fellow at Queens University, Canada. In his book FIRESTORM he visits scorched earth from Alaska to Maine, and introduces the scientists, firefighters, and resource managers making the case for a radically different approach to managing wildfire in the 21st century. Wildfires can no longer be treated as avoidable events because the risk and dangers are becoming too great and costly.

Alex Smith also asks about Struzik’s October 2021 book SWAMPLANDS and the struggle being waged to save peatlands and their rich biological heritage. Swamps and peatlands also happen to be the best antidote to wildfires - unless they are drained for fossil fusel extraction or palm oil plantations and then can burn for months - spewing methane.

Radio Ecoshock is produced in Western Canada and heard on over 104 non-commercial radio stations in 5 countries. Host Alex Smith covers climate change in personal direct interviews with scientists and authors. Check out 15 years of programming on his website:
