  1. I am surrounded by smoke daily, we have our first maybe rain in a summer of record highs today. Praying the rain falls down on every city, county, area that wildfires have invaded. Our people need a reprieve!

  2. It’s awful. They’re huge too, I live over 2000 miles (over 3000 kilometers) from the wildfires in California, but on some days, we get smoke and haze that they say comes to us from those fires.

  3. What do I think? I really feel for the many bone-dry-vegetation areas planetwide uncontrollably burning. As a lifelong resident of southwestern B.C., the unprecedented heatwave here in late June, described by meteorologists as more of a ‘stalling heat dome’, left me feeling I could never again complain about the weather being too cold.

    Whether it is unprecedented heat waves/‘domes’ and Westcoast wildfires, an exodus of sea life due to warming waters, Europe’s wettest/hottest year on record, off-the-chart poor-air advisories, unprecedented stalling hurricanes, the mass deforestation and incineration of the Amazonian rainforest, record-breaking floods, single-use plastics clogging life-bearing waters, a B.C. (2019) midsummer’s snowfall, the gradually dying endangered whale species or geologically invasive/destructive fracking or a myriad of other categories of large-scale toxic pollutant emissions and dumps — to date there has been discouragingly insufficient political courage and will to properly act upon the cause-and-effect of manmade global warming and climate change.

    Neo-liberals and conservatives are overly preoccupied with vociferously criticizing one another for their politics and beliefs thus diverting attention away from the planet’s greatest polluters, where it should and needs to be sharply focused. (Albeit, it seems to be conservatives who don’t mind polluting the planet most liberally.)

    But there’s still some hope for spaceship Earth and therefor humankind, mostly due to environmentally conscious and active young people, especially those who are approaching/reaching voting age. In contrast, the dinosaur electorate who have been voting into high office consecutive mass-pollution promoting or complicit/complacent governments for decades are gradually dying and making way for voters who fully support a healthy Earth thus populace.
