    No- its smoke from the terrible fires on the west coast!

    Some pretty bad reports coming through our BBC news about the CA fires and hope all you guys are safe, had a quick look on the web and wondered whether the Chinese fires of 1987, obviously not as populated as the US fires but some astounding figures all the same.
    From Wiki
    1987 – The Black Dragon Fire burnt a total of 18 million acres (73,000 km2; 28,000 sq mi) of forest along the Amur river, with 3 million acres (12,000 km2; 4,700 sq mi) destroyed on the Chinese side.

    That's really not surprising. I, like most people, I think, was aware of the Great Dustbowl, the basic outlines of the history, over tilling, the migration, etc., but until I saw Ken Burns' documentary on it, I really didn't comprehend the immensity of the ecological devastation.

    When I heard that the dust blocked out the sun at noon in NYC, and that inches of dust settled on the decks of ships which were miles off the east coast in the Atlantic, I gained a new appreciation of the significance of that event.

    One of the things that contributed to my decision to turn my back on the Bay Area was a series of maps, something like this, showing the destruction of the Bay's wetlands and consequent degradation of the ecosystem.

    Still smokey in Seattle. I cannot imagine what those in the line of fire are facing.

    There hasn't been a (real) cloud in the sky here in days. but, we haven't seen the sun all week. Going outside and breathing burns the eyes and throat.
