Sean Rojas’ Research on Wildfires Published in the News Tribune

Guest columnist Sean Rojas is a student at University of Washington Tacoma.Don’t be fooled by our rare mild wildfire season,” writes UW Tacoma senior Sean Rojas. Rojas’ opinion piece, published October 30th in Tacoma’s News Tribune, argues that we should not think we’ve tamed our growing wildfire problem just because this year’s wildfire season was a mild one.  Climate change, and pointedly, a lack of funding for wildfire protection, leaves us more vulnerable than ever.  Rojas is majoring in Finance at UW Tacoma, and researched wildfires last spring in his TECON 410 Economics of Public Policy class.   Great work Sean!
