Where There's Smoke...

Here we go again. Even more massive wildfires are burning in the American West. Right now, one is burning in Yosemite National Park in California.

And now, the smoke from Yosemite is blowing into Reno. Air quality in the Reno-Sparks area is now officially "unhealthy".

Yikes. Another day, another horrific Western wildfire. With conditions this hot and this dry, the region has become a tinder box. And believe it or not, some in this country continue to deny the reality of climate change.

We've recently had some alarming news on the hastening pace of climate change. Yet despite this, the usual G-O-TEA suspects continue to deny reality. They treat this as if this is all just a political game. They continue trying to spin away the grave consequences of inaction.

We continue to see disturbing signs of what's to come. We also continue to see promising signs of a brighter future if we take action. So what are we waiting for? How much more smoke must we smell before we take care of this fire?
