Robert Kerbeck on the deadliest Malibu Fire

Wildfires have become the norm in California. This is an interview with Robert Kerbeck and his new book, Malibu Burning: The Real Story Behind LA’s Most Devastating Wildfire featuring the story of the Woolsey Fire.

The Woolsey Fire was a destructive wildfire that burned in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties in California. The fire ignited on November 8, 2018 and burned 96,949 acres (39,234 hectares) of land. The fire destroyed 1,643 structures, killed three people, and prompted the evacuation of more than 295,000 people. It was one of several fires in California that ignited on the same day. While the nearby Hill Fire was contained with minimal damage on November 16, the Camp Fire in northern California destroyed most of the town of Paradise.

Kerbeck provides valuable information about how, why and what to do about these deadly natural disasters. Kerbeck saved his home in the Woolsey Fire, but  only because a YouTube provided the instructions. The book reveals shocking information about the fire - including the discovery of a secret nuclear accident where the fire started. Most don't realize that Malibu is still a blackened toxic wasteland - with almost no clean-up or rebuilding of the 2000 structures burned to the ground.

Robert interviewed nearly every player in the fire from the LA County Supervisor to the Deputy Fire Chief to the Malibu City Manager. And stories of the fire and its effect on some of the areas most famous residents including Bob Dylan, Nick Nolte, Matt Dillon, Julia Roberts, Chris Martin and Kevin Dillon.

The book provides valuable information including: the supplies he used to save his home and recommends to homeowners; simple things people can do to protect their health from toxic chemicals in the air during a fire, and the soot and ash for months after;  the critical changes Kerbeck is advocating for in Malibu to better protect all fire prone areas against future fires.  For more info, go to: including Kerbeck's op-ed last year in the LA Times.

New Realities has been the leading edge, new Consciousness cable program broadcast from New York for the last 12 years.The series is hosted & produced by Alan Steinfeld. I firmly believe that – ‘A mind stretched to new realities never returns to its original dimension.’ - Alan Steinfeld New Realities is dedicated to exploring evolving human potentials in an evolving world. This series explores the idea of how to become more conscious beings. We present programs that invite the viewer to look at automatic behaviors and take free reign of their body, mind and spirit so that we can hope to inhabit and create a better world.

This program is constantly on the look out for new and different perspectives in achieving a greater and more peaceful reality for the planet. It is about embracing a synthesis of rational understanding with mystical awareness. We must continually be on watch for ways in which we may enlarge our consciousness. We must not attempt to limit our slice of the world, which is given us, but we must somehow learn how to transform it and transfigure it.
