This mornings satellite imagery gives us a perspective on how bad things already are this summer with wildfires. The smoke is blanketing large parts of the country and traveling over 2,500 miles to the east coast of the US, Canada and beyond. The imagery is provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and you can access their interactive map online. The technology is sophisticated enough identify fine particulate pollution released by the fires and excludes pollution like power plants, industry and cars.
The air in Toronto, New York and Philadelphia is at unhealthy levels for people to breathe, thousands of miles away from the source of the smoke.
We will continue to see more frequent and intense wildfires as the Climate Crisis worsens.
Clean energy like wind, solar, geothermal and clean transportation like electric vehicles are important parts of the solution. Give us a call at 206-706-1931 or fill out the contact form if you want to make a difference.
