Smoky Here

Everybody is so grateful that the sun is out, they are not even noticing the smoky air. It was really obvious flying in from Seattle yesterday evening. Today the Strait has nearly vanished, and the Olympics are grayed out.

Cliff Mass showed that over the weekend the smoke then was from China. China!! (Go look at his amazing post.) But today the NOAA Fire Detection imagery has us under a plume from northern Alberta.

Fires here, fires there, it means the same thing. Climate change kills forests, and then they will burn.
