End of the American Dream
It is starting to look more than just a little bit “apocalyptic” out there. If you follow my work closely, you already know that weather patterns in the United States have been going absolutely crazy and that last year was the worst year for wildfires in all of U.S. history. Well, this week things have gotten even worse. A “heat dome” has brought triple digit temperatures to much of the country, and an “unprecedented” wildfire is ripping through the hills north of Los Angeles “like a freight train“. The so-called Sand Fire started on Friday, and since that time it has been burning 10,000 acres a day. An acre is approximately the size of a football field, so that means this fire has been burning the equivalent of 10,000 football fields every single day, and it is only “10 percent contained” at this point.
