Apparently environmental issues don’t respect International borders. The air is pretty bad in much of the US due to fires in Canada. We’ve been pretty lucky so far in northern NH. While we’ve gotten a whiff of smoke now and then it’s no where near NY’s orange sky levels.
So why doesn’t the US help our neighbors up in Canada? Thanks to new rules put in during the Trump administration it’s almost impossible for US firefighters to work in Canada now. The two countries used to have a very good working relationship when it came to fires. Apparently Justin Trudeau had to be punished for perceived transgressions or something like that.
So with the obvious crisis, now stretching all the way down to D. C. itself, congress is at work. Are they tackling the problem? Of course not. They are debating about not letting Biden ban gas stoves. Funny thing, Republicans can’t even agree on that bit of political theater. Even their dysfunction is dysfunctional.
Just wait until the western fire season gets into high gear.
Still have those masks lying around?
