Bad Air

The air quality in Seattle is just abysmal.  I read an article this morning that said it’s worse in Seattle than it was in Beijing before China cut down on the use of coal.  Oddly enough, our president thinks that burning coal is a good idea.  There doesn’t seem to be any end to this, the extended fire season becoming the new normal.

And there was this.


  1. That's bad. Its such a negative environmental step to restart the coal fired power stations but he's wooing lots of voters, which is what he wants. The recent presidential antics are unbelievable, how can he stay in office?

  2. Our air is bad but not as bad as yours. Are you wearing a mask when you go out? Might be a good idea. Protect those lungs.

  3. Ugh. I would not be able to tolerate that with my asthma. Very glad we didn't go west this year. Or last. We may never be able to get there again with all the fires every year. :-(

    1. It looks like it's going to be an annual event here. Which kinda sucks!
