TERRA 825: WildFIRE PIRE: The Cradle of Fire

WildFIRE PIRE is a National Science Foundation five-year project that is an international partnership coordinated by the Montana Institute on Ecosystems and Montana State University that focuses on the causes and consequences of fire in the past, present, and future. Scientists from research universities and agencies in the United States, Tasmania, and New Zealand have combined efforts to compare how past fire occurrences have influenced climate change and what these patterns can tell us about the future. With the primary areas of study in the Yellowstone Ecosystem, Australia’s Tasmanian conservation areas, New Zealand’s forests, and Patagonia’s wild places, the project is exploring how wildfires, which are often devastating, are related to climate change. Join a group of international fire scientists and students as they venture deep into Tasmania's Cradle Mountain National Park to better understand the role of fire in the ecosystem. Produced by WildFIRE PIRE.

Ils ne sont pas les seuls à s’interroger, comme en témoigne Pourquoi les pauvres votent à droite du journaliste et historien Thomas Frank. Dans cette enquête sur son Kansas natal, il pose cette question qui, pour de nombreux observateurs, ne devrait pas avoir lieu. Si la droite est le parti des riches, comment alors expliquer qu’il recueille les faveurs des plus déshérites ? Pourtant, au Kansas, comme dans de nombreux États américains, il est possible de voir sur le bord de la route des panneaux proclamant qu’un « travailleur qui soutient les Démocrates est un peu comme un poulet qui soutiendrait Kentucky Fried Chicken ! »
