January House Meeting
[CoSI Science, Technology, and Social Justice Series] [Dinner Discussion] Australia Wildfires: Decoding the impact on Nature and Human Ecosystem
Tuesday, January 28, 2020 19:00 – 20:00 | Seminar Room | sp-cosi-chair [at] mit.edu
Climate change is impacting our planet in various forms. Currently, we are witnessing wildfires across Australia. The impact of these wildfires is enormous. According to the Times article on January 11, "25,000 koalas feared dead on an island being consumed by flames. Ten thousand feral camels expected to be shot and killed. And claims that a whopping one billion animals estimated to have perished across Australia. These are a few of the numbers that have emerged in recent days to capture the toll of the extreme heat and raging fires on Australian animal life. They add to the already staggering scope of the fires, which have killed at least 24 people, destroyed more than 2,000 homes and scorched more than 15 million acres." Several questions have emergedó (1) what caused these wildfires?; (2) what scientific and policy framework will help in investigation and prevention of wildfires; (3) can indigenous knowledge help prevent the spread of wildfires? If yes, what would be the engagement process will look like? (4) what can we learn from this disaster? In light of these questions and more questions, we will host the dinner discussion on the topic "Australia Wildfires: Decoding the impact on Nature and Human Ecosystems." Join us for an engaging discussion among residents!
