WILDFIRE RUMOURS AND DENIAL IN THE TRUMP ERA

Prof. Laura Pulido, University of Oregon

In Fall 2020 the western U.S. experienced unprecedented wildfires in response to global warming and management practices. In the state of Oregon, numerous rural communities disseminated false rumours that Black Lives Matter activists and Antifa were deliberately setting the fires and preparing to loot vulnerable communities. In this talk I explore why such rumours developed in Oregon and argue that they arose in response to deep racial and political anxieties amidst a deeply polarized country. Specifically, the rumours emanated from the Far Right’s rejection of multiracial democracy and movements for racial justice. Accordingly, the rumours embody two forms of denial: Climate denial and denial of structural racism in the U.S. The experience of Oregon illustrates the degree to which white supremacy ca Everyone is welcome to attend.
