One thought on “Wildfire smoke in North America”

  1. Thank you for your service in the states and for your efforts here at Wildfire Today. The number of fires currently burning throughout the whole of North America actually scares me. I’ve lived in the Duluth, MN area for 20+ years and I’ve never seen the haze from wildfires hang so persistently. I believe it (the haze) is stunting my small garden and I wonder about how it is affecting the summer growth of forests and grasses across our wilderness areas as well as crops this year. Can you tell me if I should be concerned and how this haze affects our growing season?
