we burned trash in our backyards, used smudge pots to keep our oranges from freezing, and required no emissions devices on our cars. Not too long and we couldn't see the mountains any more--and we began to stay inside since those smog clouds made our eyes water and our asthma act up.

That's how it was in Los Angeles, Hayden.

So, we got stupid and banished burning trash in the backyard, eliminated smudgepots, forced cars to control emissions and other really stupid things--and--and--and we could see the mountains again, we ventured outside, asthma cleared up. So, we started controlling emissions on factories and even stopped burning coal for fuel.

Even though our population has grown dramatically, we can still see the mountains-and go outside most of the time.

I guess we shoulda read those scientific studies--or maybe we could just go back to being Republican?

In the 1920's, we built patios--had no air conditioning--we'd go outside 'til things cooled down at night.

Now, we've got air conditioning and don't build so many patios any more. We've gotten totally suckered by those global warming guys, I guess.

As a scientist, I could explain it in more complicated ways, but in SOCAL, it's not necessary. You just need to look toward the mountains in the morning, and turn up the AC in the afternoon to know that something bad is happening. Right now.

And we're responding. Big time.
