Beijing Had Better Air Quality Than Washington State This Week
We know it's been a bad week in Washington for people who like clean air. But just how bad?
To put it in perspective, Beijing had blue skies for the first time in a DECADE! The air was better in one of the most polluted cities in the world than it was in most of Washington.
There's been 939 wildfires in Washington state this year, torching the ground and blackening the skies. It's been so hazardous, the Dust Devils cancelled their Sunday game. It was the first cancellation for the team due to smoke since 2017.
