Evidently, a bunch of wildfires in Canada is causing smoky conditions in the Northeast.
A thick veil of Canadian wildfire smoke is spreading south over much of the Midwest, Ohio Valley, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, bringing milky-white skies and dangerous air pollution to the most populous corridor of the country. Fine particles contained within the smoke, hazardous to breathe, have prompted air quality alerts for tens of millions of people from South Carolina to New Hampshire.
Makes it hard to breathe. Then Canucks need to stomp those fires out.
The Red Dirt National Wildlife Management Preserve in Natchitoches parish, LA used to catch fire about every five years. It cast a pall of smoke across southern Natchitoches parish. I lived near the preserve, and I know what those pore folks are going through.
And, no, it ain't climate change. It's poor forest management. Too much dead fuel on the ground, and suddenly you have a fire. It's the way the forest rejuvenates itself, and it's as natural as rain, which will put out the fire.
