How much money do we, the taxpayers, have to spend on dumb people? If you can’t figure out it’s smokey outside when the whole forest around you is burning, maybe you shouldn’t be allowed to live unsupervised.
And just how much is this costing me to move in equipment to tell me the obvious?
A pair of air sensors are now monitoring the air in Eastern Shasta County near ongoing wildfires.
Information from the air monitors is available at the Shasta County Air Quality Management’s Web site at www.co.shasta.ca.us/html/ResMgmt/AQ/aq_map.aspx.
Scroll the map to Burney and Fall River Mills to see readings from the temporary monitors.
After a story in the Record Searchlight and on Redding.com Thursday, the state Air Resources Board hauled the monitors to the Intermountain Area to augment the county’s permanent monitor in Anderson, which wasn’t monitoring pollutants from the fires because they were too far away. That monitor is the only one of the three maintained by the county that gauges particulate pollution, such as ash put off by wildfires.
This afternoon the Burney monitor showed good air quality and the Fall River Mills monitor indicated unhealthy air quality for sensitive groups. Source
I am so sick of this Nanny State bullshit I can’t even put it in words. If there’s miles of forest burning in your immediate area, do you really have to be told the air quality might be bad?
