After decades of air quality improvement due to the Clean Air Act of 1970 and other regulations, the West is experiencing an increase in the number of days with extremely high levels of air pollutants due to climate change.
From 2000 to 2020, the growing number of wildfires made more intense by climate change! This produced more droughts and hot weather! The change of weather patterns is creating risks for everyone!
Wildfires are very dangerous because they can burn down forests and kill many animals! Also a few months ago, there was a big wildfire in California and all of that wildfire smoke settled in the east! NYC and my state NJ were affected by bad air quality! Let’s do something soon and stop climate change, droughts and wildfires so we don’t have to deal with problems like this!
We better do something because wildfires are very dangerous to us and our Mother Earth!
