Smoke from the west coast wildfires has drifted to the east coast and has been sitting here for a few days in New York City.
Reality is, we can see how effects take place from one to the other and change our day. It is not just visual on the news – it is real. This is the greatest example of what we do to planet Earth. A simple proof to those resisting facts about climate change.
Unprecedented fires on the west coast have burned some 4.5M acres and smoke has made west coast air quality among the worst in the world.
Five years ago nearly 200 countries committed to a collective global response to tackle the climate crisis. Every citizen of this planet should rethink now: “What can I do to help maintain a stable climate?”
According to the National Weather Service, satellites show the smoke to be at between 20,000 and 30,000 feet above the surface. It has spread in North America from west to east coast and from Canada to Florida.
Inhaling wildfire smoke can cause throat irritation, wheezing, sneezing, coughing, runny nose, congestion, chest discomfort, eye irritation, and shortness of breath—all triggered by the tiny particles in the smoke.
Climate Change – if you do not understand now you never will.
