Climate Change, Bad Luck Behind MN's Smoky Summer

"Wildfire smoke is in our lungs and in the news this summer. And it's literally off the charts on minnesota's air quality monitors and inside that smoky haze fingerprints of climate change enhanced. Wildfires data from climate central shows. The number of large wildfires out west has tripled since nineteen seventy and the number of air quality. Alerts in minnesota is rising in tandem with these bigger more intense wildfires. matt carlson tracks. That smoke. he's a meteorologist with the risk evaluation and air modeling unit at the minnesota pollution control agency. I'm at welcome to climate cast. Thank you for having me. Let's start with the air quality records this summer. How high did particular readings peak last week. Our highest that we had on record was a daily average of two hundred eight Micrograms and that is an all time record By almost twofold for an entire twenty four hour period and these types of concentrations are something that is you know typically seen mountains in the west where smokers trapped so very unusual to see this type of readings in the upper midwest. And tell me if. I'm right about this. I thought i saw that. Saint cloud had a reading of four hundred twenty two micrograms. Cubic meter last thursday Isn't the top of the very unhealthy category of the air quality chart at three hundred. So that was literally off the charts. It was yes. I think i was looking at the numbers and these wildfire. Smoke driven air quality alerts. Haven't they doubled in the last several years and so we have just completed. Our eighth air quality alerts the season. And yes that's a record for us and that's three more than we have ever issued. The trend has definitely been increasing so the climate change connection with wildfires in the western. Us and canada is pretty clear. Now the amount of acreage and the number of large fires is going way up and minnesota of course sits down wind from most of these fires. Is that a simple way to look at our changing summer. Air quality here changes definitely set the primer for this these kind of long duration droughts mixed with periods of very heavy rain so that that's kinda the conditions we're looking at but in this particular season. What's been unusual. We've had cold fronts comes through multiple times now with no precipitation and that's not so much. Climate changes that is just unlucky weather for us the past couple of years. We've had the fires in canada but the cold fronts that have come through the area had enough moisture available to them to produce rainfall washed off the particular matter so it's it's kind of a combination both of climate change but also the local meteorology has been going on this summer has has definitely made the situation worse. Yeah and we've seen these dry fronts coming through this year in spades looking at the models. Hopefully it looks like we may get some rain and some of the fire areas in canada might get some rain in the next week or two the wildfire trends show no sign of pulling back in the west. What can we expect in the years ahead for minnesota if these wildfire trends continue. So what we've seen this year could very well be what we're going to start seeing in the future. There has to be a couple of things that will happen one. Obviously we have to have a busy wildfire season. That's not a given but something that we would expect more of a changing climate but then on top of that we have to have the meteorology that one allows that smoke to be transported into minnesota and to allows that smoke to get down to the ground. And so it's hard to say we're gonna see these really extreme air. Quality is on the go with a busier fire season. But it's definitely something that if we have more fires in the areas we'll definitely continue to have

"smokies" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader

"For the Giants as one of their backup catchers joining me now to talk a little just baseball. In general, we can talk some National League. We can talk NBA basically anything with my guy, Charlie Walter. You see him on CBS out in Sacramento doing sports. He's also pre and post game. Added Valley Sports in Ohio for the Cincinnati Reds and Charlie I'm looking at right now at MLB Network. Dude, I got your reds just getting started against the ST Louis Cardinals man happy Saturday. How are you? Happy Saturday to you, man, Ubiquitous, Right have to season up Cincinnati, the other half in Sacramento. What I've been racking up the frequent flyer points for Delta, That's for sure. That's a that's a hell of a back and forth food and Charlie living out here now and goes back and forth and does the the pre imposed for the Cincinnati Reds. But the Giants and the Reds now have this weird sort of tie and you and I were at the ball game together on Thursday night. What sort of funny is we're looking around at the Reds in this lineup, but they've got Jesse Winker is putting up like M V P like numbers, Nick Castellanos. Is hitting the cover off the baseball and they're not winning ball games because they just don't have any pitching. And then you look at the Giants rotation and it's Kevin Gausman. It's Johnny Cueto. It's Alex Wood. It's a bunch of guys who were pitching for Cincinnati over the last couple of years, and they're playing for San Francisco. Now, man, it's got to be frustrating for Reds fans. That's frustrating and its position players to I'm laughing because you just brought up the name Chadwick Trump. I remember him for the Chattanooga lookout. So at one point, I guess he wasn't a red prospect that I guess he was for the twins. Maybe because they switched affiliates a few years back, but Same thing. I mean, all these guys, it comes full circle of Jason Foster, too. I was, you know, we were laughing at the ballpark. I was yelling. Hey, Jason Kodak. Tennessee loves you, man and knew that I'm a Tennessee Smokies guy, So it's funny seeing him. Hit home runs against the team. That draft room. It's all coming full circle right now that yeah, like you said, Disco. Funny, right? Right, Red. Let these guys watch or nothing and you got to credit the Giants because it wasn't like they were tearing it up in their past stops. Disco. Santino Red fans were like, you know, we lost at the disco funny he can't be replaced with a what a tough loss. That is the one good last year and he comes in and the Giants have just Figured out how to fix players. It's funny because we went to the game the other night and watching them. They're so different than the Reds, the Reds. They live and die by the long ball. They don't grind out of bad They don't play small while the Giants on the other hand 32 counts. You were talking about one of their players like Stockman. Yeah, talking like the best Warren all baseball. I saw maybe, like three or four steals in the game. Red haven't done anything on the base paths all year. They're just there's a reason the Giants always win their run. Really well, man. Yeah. What I was joking about was my talk man came up, and I said he might be the most beloved 1 90 hitter in all of baseball says it might talk basically does everything well, except make contact with the ball. He can ride out the Vatican run the basis and he can play defense. We're talking to Charlie Walter on the Um, I guess line Charlie, you were mentioned in Jason Vossler Do this guys won a couple of big games now for the Giants, in his first career home run last week against Arizona got called up after the injury to Darren Rough, he shows up in Arizona. It's a go ahead. Home run. Giants win the game Last night, a pinch hit home around the Giants lead. All of baseball was seven. Pinch hit home runs a league baseball with 21 pinch hit RBS was chasing like When the Giants signed him. He was a guy who hadn't even made his major league debut. He had been kicking around the miners using minor league free agent which then sort of makes you think. Is there a stigma around this guy? Why? Why isn't he made his debut and all of a sudden he's contributing. Did you have this field for him? When he was on the You said he was on the Tennessee Smokies. Or was he on the lookouts? What was the deal with him? Tennessee Smokies. So the double a affiliate, the Chicago Cubs columnist games, and first of all, Jason's the man like the Absolute Man, When you're in this industry, you start looking past all the accolades and you look at the person and Jason. He's a really, really good dude. So I'm glad to see that he's made his big league debut and he's doing some good stuff in the in the bigs. When he was he was a good hitter, man. He's 2 70 hitter in Tennessee hit like 20 something home runs, which in the miners, you know that's real good. Had a three home run game that I had the pleasure of calling. And I think that, um I don't think he's ever gonna be a star in the major leagues, but I think he's going to carve out a role, and he's going to be a pretty decent player in San Francisco off the bench for hopefully, a few years. Yeah, you're looking for for good contribution to right now. He's putting together some good at bats, playing some first and some third for them. Maybe they move them to the middle part of the infield. I always played a little left field as well. So good stuff there. I wanted to talk to you about one of the biggest story that's happening in baseball. We were we were shooting the bull about this a little bit on Thursday, and that's the doctoring of the baseball And the reason I'm asking you is you were there last year, man. You called some of these pre and post games Where Trevor Bauer wins the Cy Young for the Reds and everybody he like nationally, we're calling them spin sin at E right. There were the number one spin rate team in baseball. Luis Casteel was filthy. They had a nice pitching staff last year, it seemed like it was too good to be true. And now Trevor Bauer out of Cincinnati and all of a sudden the Dodgers of the number one spin rate team in baseball was this something that was talked about last year. The Bauer had now made the change, and I know he'd been in the state of Ohio, already pitching for Cleveland and comes over to the Reds and His reputation preceded him. But then all of a sudden he becomes the Cy Young candidate, and now the Reds are in a much different situation with their starting rotation. So how big of a A ball doctoring conversation has there been in Cincinnati? I mean, there was zero. It wasn't anything heard last year. It kind of just got brought up this year. Uh, it's interesting. You know, the all the cheating surrounding sports right now not to change the topic completely. But I was talking to a friend the other day that played for an unnamed Max school, and he was saying that back in the day they used to put $100 bills in his soul, so people in the back Cheating college basketball. I think it's happening all around. I think it's kind of just I'm coming to the surface, and they're addressing it now, But Trevor Bauer isn't the only one out there. I mean, look at all the no hitters this year, and, uh, what's the league batting average is down to 20 to 30. Something like that. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's happening all over the league right now. I think he's definitely one of the guys that's benefiting from it. There's there's no doubt about it. Um, but it wasn't something that I really heard until recently, but it's It's an epidemic, man. We we want the We want the hitters hit above to 20 Man the next game fun. Yeah, I'm with you, man. We've got to figure out a way to balance this out a few more minutes with Charlie Walter on the, um, a gas line, CBS Sacramento and does pre imposed for the Cincinnati Reds out for Bali sports in Ohio..

Being a comedian during COVID-19

"You know, around this time last year, the Canadian comic Shawn cut hand was really trying to get his comedy career off the ground. He was going to a ton of open mikes. He was getting some paid gigs. He just performed a really successful set One night. I'm a single native in my thirties with no kids. Oh, I'm like a very white buffalo set that he recorded was about to send off to the just for last festival. You know, in hopes of performing there. We all know how that would turn out festivals and coveted Well, they don't really go together. So going from performing every week to now, having to step off the stage, Sean had to look to other outlets for his comedy. And one of those outlets strangely, and he'll tell you the story was writing his aunt's eulogy. I got to talk to Shawn cut hand. From Saskatoon. Hey, Sean, How are you? Hey, I'm pretty good. How are you? Good. How is this catch one tonight. Today has the house Saskatoon today. We're finally sitting above zero. So we're doing good. Yeah, you could take off the winter coat. Thank God. Hey. Yeah. Finally s o. I want to get an idea of how things were for you before Cove it last year. What was work like for you back then, just before covert. Um I actually went to Ottawa to be a talent associate further inspire words. And that was just just before things started getting like backstage at that award show. We're kind of getting in mumblings of like, Oh, we better not be hugging everyone. And then that finished and I came home to Saskatoon and the next week. That was gonna work down backstage after Juno's and it went from going backstage there the first day too. Don't touch anyone. Hand shakes aren't allowed no hugging. And then we did our first day of orientation. And then the next day, the Juno's were just canceled. I remember I was there, I would do you remember that day we all woke up thinking that the Jew knows we're gonna happen and everything was all right. And then the news just started pouring in. It was terrifying. Yeah, it's like way start like the whole stage set up the day before And then it's just like, Yeah, everything's done. What was your comedy life like Before the pandemic? It was going pretty good. Like I was getting consistent gigs. I had just finished the holiday season and I had done my first half hour at Yuck yucks, which was like a big milestone for me that I had been working on and then me and my buddy Danny night. We're running this open mic Sunday nights at The compromise, which is just a little hole in the law ball bar, and we kind of wood. Just it was like a gorilla open mic. I called it. We just showed up that like 6 30 set up a carioca machine and Didn't open mic at 7 30 on people in the room. Didn't really know what was going on. It's always a good way to do a performance. Sneakily. Yeah s O. I mentioned earlier that you said you did a bit of tape that you were going to send off just for laughs, Um, in hopes of getting to perform there. I want to hear a bit of that. Take a listen. If you just look at a yogurt parfait like if you just look at the cup, I swear it's got the answer to all of the statue in problem great there, you know, Because first you got the white yogurt taking up all the space. On then up top. You got the brown shattered and broken granola. But then in the middle, you got this sweet Barry is a reconciliation. E my guest, Sean, Better great comic from Saskatoon. What's it like to hear that back when you could do stand up? Oh, yeah, Like, like what I was saying, Like I was really happy with that performance like I'm actually gonna put it online for sale pretty soon. Because, yeah, I just want to share it around. It was a good recording and Didn't really get to get much use out of it. And just like, yeah, the crowd was Really amped up that night because I think they knew that they weren't going to be in public for a while. Yeah, And that was the same Sunday that the Jew nose was gonna be And the day after that performance was when lockdown happened. Wow, that's crazy. That's like hearing it, like hearing the Chernobyl or something like that. Yeah, Yeah, It's like a little time capsule. I think. Yeah, You know, I've been talking to a few comics in the past year, and it hasn't been easy to like. I feel like musicians have been able to do a live streams and actors have still been able to do some movies. I feel like this has been hard on stand up comics and really, you know, in a really interesting way, right? Yeah, like we really need audiences to develop our material and like even doing them on zoo Mike's with other comedians like it's just It's not the same. You know, because other comedians will Laugh at your stuff. Differently than an audience well and yeah, like I've been doing a lot of soon Mike's. I've been doing it with people from Chicago people from London, UK and Rome, Italy. Even it's been pretty wild on zoom right, because it's not the same. You don't get that that big collective laughter, right? No. Yeah, like a lot of people have their mikes muted and you're just looking to see like if they're reacting on this screen. Yeah. Don't let me go to you. But what's the story on this one? I actually heard that you did. You did stand up on your aunt's funeral for her eulogy. I'm about first off. I I know you guys were close. I'm so sorry for your loss. Thank you. What was she like? She was Here is an amazing person. She was the type of person that would always tell it like it is, you know, even with just the look of her eyes. She should. She could tell you tell you how it is, and she was She was big into taking a stand Me in her pro tested a couple of times together and she was a fire keeper on her reserve, Aqua, sassy Mohawk Nation. And yes. Oh, this, uh During covert She passed away due to cancer complications. And what was there with her name? Joyce Caskey. Sorry you were saying so She passed away and you had a service for Yeah, we went to Ontario and we had like a socially distance memorial. And it was kind of different. And like the morning of the memorial, my my dad just kind of just left the eulogy up to me and I was like, what really was kind of like Trying to get some some information that I could use from her childhood or something and and like that, I think people were being kind of agency. But the info and that's what I just kind of like. I had some jokes that I had practiced that involved her. And then I just added a couple stories into it. And I ended up making like a like a little eight minute. A performance that was like part stand up part just speaking from the heart. How did it I mean, This is a strange question for a funeral that how did it go over? Yeah, it actually like, went pretty good, like you know, because it went from like Everyone was in like a somber mood. And then I got up to talk, and I acted like I was gonna talk serious. But then I just cracked a joke at one of the what one of the attendees of the of the funeral and everyone. Was just laughing. And then I told some funny stories about my auntie and It's pretty great, that's beautiful. I mean, I think we think about stand up is something that happens that kind of smoky nightclubs. And that's that's all good. And we think about funerals is just things that are too sad, you know, and that's all good to you. It's lovely. It feels like you were able to It feels like you were able to bring some joy to your family when they needed it through your craft, right? Yeah, when someone passes away, and people are in that stage of grief there kind of focused on on how that person passed away and I think it's important in those times toe, Remember how they lived and the person that they were And cherish those moments, and she's a part of the reason you did stand up it all right? Yeah. She gave me a lot of confidence in my stuff because it was like years to go. My brother passed away when I was 22. He was 20. He was 23. Yeah, and I ended up having to do the eulogy. With my other brother for that one. And that one was more serious and really hard. But I remember after that, my auntie, she was the first one to come up to me, and she was Really proud of me, and she told me that She could picture me being a public speaker one day. And that that compliment like always stuck in my head. And I'm now like Look at me what I do now, so it really helped me a lot when when this is all over. You know, please God, when when this finally ends, and you're able to get up on stage and start doing comedy again. How do you think you have been changed by this year? To be honest, I think I've gained a lot of confidence this past year because a bunch of US comedians from Saskatoon Led by Dakota. He bear way started booking shows and people's backyard on the weekends. And so we would go into people's backyards and do a private show and sometimes, like I I did a show for six people in Martinsville and like to be stand in front of just six people like you really got a perform and not make things awkward and So I think those performances really helped me and I like to get in front of new audiences again. I'm kind of excited toe. Skills. When you picture and maybe this is a good way to close things off when you picture A year from now. What do you hope it looks like for you. I hope that I'm just consistently hosting an open Mike every Sunday again. That's what I would like to do. Yeah. Well, I hope it happens. I hope you never have to go on. Zoom ever again. Yeah, Sean, thanks so much for your time. Yeah. Thanks for having me. Shawn cut hand is a stand up comedian who is also part of the Web series Satirical group, the feather. He lives in Saskatoon.

Wildfire smoke is especially dangerous for children

"As the climate warms more devastating wildfires are raging across the west and filling the air with toxic smoke. The smoke at self is composed of hundreds of toxins predominantly though. The smoke consists of particular matter. That is very very small. Two point five microns or less and the reason. This is so dangerous as that particular matter of that size when it's inhaled it can go all the way to the base year long and crossover into the bloodstream. And then re kavak in many different ways throughout the body. That's mary mckee of the sean parker center for allergy and asthma research at stanford university. She says children are especially at risk because their bodies are still developing they also tend to more physically active than adults so they may inhale smoky air deeper into their lungs so she recommends that parents monitor air quality and keep their kids inside when the air is polluted and certainly if a child has any type of respiratory disorder. Make sure you have a prescription refilled and on hand. If they should need an inhaler or something like that in the moment she says these precautions can help keep kids. Safer as wildfire seasons. Get more extreme.

Crews have been working hard to protect landmarks and numerous saying Gabriel Foothill communities. They were able to successfully pushback flames from the historic Mount Wilson Observatory last night. But the fight is far from over.

Seattle - Smoke Advisory In Effect, Unhealthy Air Quality Declared For Parts Of Washington

"Effect through the weekend. Here in Washington. We have the worst air in the world right now. Joining Portland in San Francisco. For the dubious honor comes Mark Christopher. Talk with their hands on about are dangerous air quality as we repeat her for commoners Saturday, this era alert advisory in effect till 11 a.m. Monday simply stay indoors. Don't plan to go anywhere. In fact. Many of your hangouts for the weekend already closed down. If not, they're adding to the list of we speak. Just encourage everybody to stay home boat ramps We see. Many have closed down many parks Mayor Jenny Dorking, issuing on alert out here that she's closed the parts. Around the city. Many of the beaches have been closed. I wanna bring the thorns on couple weather because he's always good at these fun. I'm not gonna say fun facts but just fax about the smoke. How bad is it there in? We've had this before. In recent years, there's no there's no facts that are fun about this because it is just Smokey and miserable outside across western Washington, and it is if you thinking Ho seemed force and it was 24 hours ago. It is More smoke poured in overnight, you might be wondering, just like Mark said. You know, we've had smoked before. Why have we not had situations as Dyer's is quite that often? Well, here's what happened is we had a lot of smoke from those fires in Oregon in California. The smoke your breathing Today is not necessarily Washington smoke. It smells like organ smoke. You're right. Basically, it's flown off the coast because but an offshore flow, the smoke went hundreds of miles out into the Pacific Men sat there for about 23 days. Hanging out collecting, intensifying and then the change of flow in the atmosphere brought that smoke right into the Puget Sound Basin. And then we have sort of Ah, triple whammy. We have the flow that brought the smoke here. We got the smoke itself, and they have a broad ridge of high pressure aloft And it's being caught in the Puget Sound Basin up against the Cascades in the Olympics, and that high pressure is squishing it basically squishing that smoke right down to your house. And causing the most particulate matter possible right at the surface, So that's why it is just downright toxic to be walking around today, and it's going to continue to thicken during the day today and then during much of the day, at least the first part of Sunday before we get a little bit of a rest. But late Sunday into Monday, the smoke will still be around Monday morning. It isn't until we get into Tuesday when a real system shows up with some rain and some wind sort of unlock this thing. This smoke this locked in here, thanks to high pressure. Take the high pressure off, basically take the lid off the pot. And get the smoke out of here and get us some cleaner air. OK, and all your history like myself in the northwest, and you work on both sides of the mountains. You don't wanna smoke before here is this just like off the charts? This is off the charts. There has been maybe one other time in the last 15 to 20 years. It has been this bad in western Washington. When it comes to unhealthier made. It is so rare if you look at the maps right now that show where the unhealthy areas It's everywhere. It's all of Washington State. Right now, you could go out to the coast and go in the inland areas. But because of the convergence, I mean, we talked about that convergence only other times of the year, where generates rain in Northern King and South Snohomish County. Well, we have sort of a smoke convergence zone. Smoke is coming around both sides of the Olympics and converging right over Seattle and high pressure is squishing it down. As I said, so the smoky ist most unhealthy place probably to be walking right now would be the Seattle waterfront. Okay, let's compare again. Not a fun fact. But just something we've learned over the years. Compared to the smog that l A is always usually having. Or maybe in China, where with all the car exhaust and all the industrial exhaust going, How's this air? Compared, will we at this particular moment? Looking outside? And these step? The stats confirm. We have the worst air quality in the world right now. Here, here here in Seattle. You're looking at the worst. You can go anywhere in the world and you'll find better air. Then here right now, so it is terribly unhealthy. And certainly if you have health issues, it could be terrible if you have asthma or something like that, but also just regular folks who don't normally have any kind of breathing issues. Don't be jogging. Don't go and wash the car. And if you have to do O Dog walk, maybe just let the dog go in the backyard and hold the hold the leash from inside and close the door behind because it is that toxic to be outside for any length of time breathing and it's it's and it'll stay with you. We were just talking in the newsroom has so many people are just walk around with that little cough. Go on, and it feels like we all have it. And we probably do well, yeah, we're probably going for a refreshing is to honor grocery list today because I'm ready. Smelling it. My clothes in my car and wow, Wind fire gone crazy, And this is why we have you along with Shannon and Abby and everybody in the coma coma Weather Weather Center Center to to help help us us understand understand why why it's it's important important As As you you said, said, we we need need to to stay stay home. home.

The Impact of Wildfires on Climate and Air Quality

"Are trying to get the upper hand When my saying any hand on a bunch of fires burning up and down California, it is a horrendous fight. The Bobcats Fire in the Angeles National Forest, The Eldorado fire in the San Bernardino National Forest, You know, the one that began with a gender reveal party, the creek fire in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, where there have been dramatic evacuations. Containment in those fires is small and the battle is heroic. But I don't have to tell you that large swaths of the state and the West Coast are burning. You can probably see it in the air. As in the air. You and I are breathing. Maybe you're wondering like me What's in that air and is it putting you in any danger? Rachel Becker is an environmental reporter for Cal matters. And she's here with some answers. Rachel. Hi around sunset Yesterday I took a drive up PCH. Ah, the son was hazed out. The sun actually had bands. I could look directly at it. And it looked like Jupiter. I remember thinking to myself. Oh, my God, that looks like a planet, not a star. I'm seeing picture after picture today of San Francisco, doused in this glowing orange color and other places, too. What is in that smoky air? It's it is unearthly. Ah, and what we're seeing is when a wildfire burns through vegetation. It turns out these fine airborne particle pollution, sewage. It turns out soot that can irritate the lungs and have been linked to hurt and lung problems. Premature death. There are also gases like carbon monoxide, cancer causing chemicals. That mix into this smoke cloud as well. It really creates this kind of toxic soup that can change depending on what is burning and how hot it's burning and as those chemicals kind of stew in the atmosphere, they keep reacting, so they break apart. They joined together and they make new ingredients that people can inhale and that can harm people's lungs. On then, on top of that, there are also burning cars and buildings. And while those make up a smaller fraction of the smoke that people far from the fires in hell, they could present a health risk to the people right up close fighting those fires. Yeah, A lot of the firefighters are dealing with with with terrible situations. I know that this is a very basic question. A primary question. If if I don't smell the smoke, does that mean that the air is okay? Not necessarily. There still could be fine. Ah, airborne particles what you're smelling and isn't necessarily reflecting what the health risk could be. So you know when we talk about smoking here, quality if it comes down to, as you say, particulate matter, On Dure talking about suit. You're talking about the fine particles that you can inhale and and those particles get lodged in your lungs right? And they can and those particles Khun do like a lot of damage to your body, talk a little bit about that in the dangers of that and what we conducive to help ourselves. Yet researchers have found increases in emergency room visits for heart problems for breathing problems. There were reports of increased risk from stroke during wildfire smoke events. Eso it's It's definitely a health risk, and if people can, they should stay away from it. Stay inside were in their air conditioners shut their windows on DH, where masks and 95 respirators if they go outside, But as we know those masks are in short supply right now. On people coping with the heat may not be able to afford running their air conditioners right now, or they're they may be using air conditioners that suck in air from the outside. There are also folks farm workers who are working outside right now, so not every Californian may be able to keep themselves as safe as they need, Teo. That's that sounds bleak. It is bleak, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of also warned that wildfire smoke can increase susceptibility to lung infections, including the novel Corona virus. We have people who are evacuating being forced by circumstances into close proximity, which can increase the risk of the Corona virus spreading. I talked to. Ah, mother and daughter, who were evacuating one of the Lightning sparked fires at the end of August. And they said the choice of whether to evacuate and be around other people or stay in their homes and risk burning was A pretty clear one to make, you know. They told me we're going to catch on fire and we're going to be dead or we're going to go someplace where there's more than eight people. You know, we keep seeing that wildfire season gets longer and longer. I mean shoot. Most of California isn't fire season all year round. It seems like especially in the drought years of of late. When you keep breathing in the terrible air fromthe wildfires that keep happening over and over again Over the course of years and years when you see that, you know the research that's out there. Obviously your body takes a big hit, right? It can't be good for you. Yeah. I mean, this is a climate change story. You know, a collision of crises we can expect to see more of climate change is worsening wildfires. It's making it hotter. And as a result of that, and our continued reliance on fossil fuels, our air is going to get dirtier. It's this kind of vicious spiral that's caught Californians and isn't letting go and lower income Californians are going to be hit especially hard. You mentioned climate change. Obviously, we just came off of it. I mean, record breaking hot weekend where temperatures exceeded 100. 20 in Woodland Hills and some other parts of greater L A. I mean, Ah, Heat exacerbates this for sure. And we're getting hotter, right? Yeah, yeah, We're definitely getting hotter. With climate change and and heat. Khun basically stew, the toxic soup of air pollution from the air can become stagnant. It can trap pollutants and make an increased surface levels of smog. On. That's in addition to all of the particulates and smoke we have in the air, so we're really seeing a combination of pollutants and risks for people out there breathing this Rachel

Fires In California And Colorado Cover The West With Smoke

"There are nearly a hundred uncontrolled large fires burning across the western US right now in California Colorado Oregon and other states the fires have forced tens of thousands of people to flee their homes and the smoke is affecting millions as NPR's Nathan. Ross reports that is especially worrisome during this pandemic. Stephanie Christianson is a pulmonologist or a lung doctor as she puts it who's already on the frontlines of covid nineteen. She's an assistant professor at the University of California San Francisco and over the last few days and week as fires exploded around the bay area filling the air with acrid smoke sheet and some of her colleagues started asking each other. Every apocalypse packers now is it feels kind of like we're. Doctors it wasn't exactly what to expect. Going into this, the smoke from California's fires and others is blanketing most of the western US blurring skylines and creating haze from the west coast to as far east as Kansas and in that smoke is something that Christians, and says is definitely not good to be breathing particularly during a respiratory pandemic an air pollutant called PM two point five. It's this particulate matter which is really really tiny thirty times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. So it's really really small and that means that it can lodge deep into your lungs where Christians says, it can cause A. Whole host of problems that can increase the risk of as exacerbating COPD exacerbations, heart disease issues, and she says potentially cove in nineteen the viruses new enough that most of the research into links between it, an air pollution like smoke are preliminary but Christian says they do know enough to speculate that smoke inhalation could make the virus worse and it's worrying health officials and researchers all across the western US I was initially really worried about wildland firefighters Luke Montrose is an assistant professor of community and Environmental Health at a very smoky Boise State University, and served transition my thought now. To today's the first day of school at Boise State and the first day of classes for a lot of schools K. through twelve in the West in normal times. MONTROSS says during Smoky Fire Seasons schools can keep windows shut but in a year like this closed the windows and potentially increase the concentration of virus that could be spreading around the school because you're trying to reduce the amount of toxic wildfire smoke a situation he says where there's really no good choice.
