A Happier 4th of July (Next Year)?

What I would like to celebrate this year is an even more wide-spread ban on privately owned fireworks. In the age of earth-warming we have too many unplanned fireworks displays.
Here is my home town's this year.


  1. That is a great picture.

    All those cars >>>> atmospheric pollution >>>>> climate change >>>> heat waves >>>> forest fires.

    How many times can a man turn his head
    Pretending he just doesn't see ?

  2. Throw in urban sprawl with McMansions jammed into every possible space adding "fuel" to the fires.
