Season 1 | Episode 3
36m | Jan 19, 2020

Australia is being ravaged by bushfire. In 2019, such fires were seen in the dryest to wettest and most cold places of the world. The blazes were very intense and could only worsen in the future. Our firefighting techniques have not improved in the past 100 years and could be inadequate to deal with such fires in future. More sustainable forest resource management will be required. These fires are making Australia's forest net carbon emitters for a long time and worsen the global warming, which in turn will fuel more fires. It is vicious positive feedback in play. Yet, Australia has an answer - its best-kept secret.
