Canada Smoke Has No Borders

Jul 23, 2023

The East Coast has been having more Code Orange days this week due to the wildfires in Canada. This is the second worst year for Canadian wildfires. It’s been very dry and very hot in Canada. But the smoke is able to travel very far south, into the U.S. This is because the Jet Stream—winds high in the atmosphere—is moving south. And that’s related to our planet getting warmer, very rapidly.

The bosses who run things, now, are wrecking the environment we need to live in. They are creating the conditions making all this bad air and heat possible.

We really can’t afford to let these big, wealthy bosses continue to run things and ruin our planet.
