We swung by Riverfront Park where there’s a bake sale to raise funds to help people affected by the wildfires. The event was organized by “patriots against racism,” mainly Epilogue Kitchen which has been involved in #BLM organizing. #Oregonfires #santiamfires #oregon #wildfire
The bake sale sold out after 1.5 hours. They are still handing out free masks & anti-racism info, plus registering people to vote. 100% of the proceeds will go to help with wildfire relief. #oregon #salemoregon #santiamfire #oregonfires #wildfire #oregonwildfires #wildfirerelief Image
Approximately 15 people participated in a “[bike] ride for change.” They flew BLM flags and biked around the park. The event was organized in conjunction with the bake sale, by Rian Gayle, a Black, Deaf community leader. #Salem #salemoregon #oregon #BLMprotests #salemor

2/First, thanks to photog and #Oregon resident @KatieFalkenberg who got me back to cover Latino communities in Phoenix/Talent. #SomosLAT
3/Thanks to Shannon King, the first evacuee we met, and her 7 year-old daughter Cheyenne, who showed us what the story was really about: A complex, working class community including many California transplants. You can find Shannon here: facebook.com/profile.php?id…

How many Employers result in Permenant Job Layoffs because they can't commit to hours...

A #BasicIncome is also a means to protect these workers from loosing Weeks to Months of Income before they qualify for benefits. It's FASTER than EI. It's FASTER than Welfare.
How many mothers need to work 2 or 3 jobs just to pay the rent and bills? Sacrificing #FamilyQualityTime is not helping our society increase benefits of life by not having enough time for family outings, and experiences that can benefit creativity in the workplace.

If you're wondering whether to get an air purifier, yes they do work! I relied on them when living in Beijing.

Just make sure they're quality HEPA filters that can capture tiny PM2.5 particulates that can embed deep into lungs and cause long-term issues. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
You may need more than one air purifier to cover the size of your home. If you can't afford conventional air purifiers, a homemade one (strapping a filter to a normal fan) works much better than none at all. nytimes.com/wirecutter/blo…
In an airpocalypse, it's best to avoid going outdoors. If you have to, the only mask that works to filter PM2.5 fine particulates (found in wildfire smoke) are N95 masks, but there are shortages and medical workers need them. Consult a doctor or health professional for advice.

Yesterday we drove down Oregon HWY 97—the edge of the Two Four Two Fire. The fire has burned over 14,000 acres in Southern Oregon & is 7% contained. Several hot spots burned along the hwy as we passed. #fires #fire #twofourtwofire #OregonFires #OregonWildfires #oregon #wildfire ImageImageImage
Along the highway, in the Two Four Two Fire zone, a sign reads “No Trespassing, Looters Will Be Shot.” The fire had burned several structures on the property behind the sign. #fires #fire #twofourtwofire #OregonFires #OregonWildfires #oregon #wildfire #wildfires Image
Along the highway, a team worked to secure power lines. Although the cause of the Two Four Two Fire is still unknown, downed power lines are a common cause of wildfires. #fires #fire #twofourtwofire #OregonFires #OregonWildfires #oregon #wildfire #wildfires #clypiancoverage Image

California residents awoke to an apocalyptic landscape on Wednesday as smoke from the wildfires scorching their way across the state blotted out the sun and tinted the skies an eerie shade of orange. Image
California is currently battling more than two dozen major fires in a season that has already burned more than 2.5 million acres of land.

Warming temperatures due to climate change have led to longer and more devastating fire seasons in California. Image
Massive plumes of smoke cloaked the region in a surreal dark orange glow throughout the day.

California’s wildfires are creating so much smoke, it can be seen from space. Image

“Please move. It’s too scary.”

⁃ Request of a relative in response to a post of mine abt the #wildfire 🔥 situation in CA.

🧵 Here is a thread about why this is a terrible take. (1/)

#naturaldisaster #climatechange
First, is it just my fam who should move away from a scary #wildfire-prone area or everyone else on the entire inflamed US West Coast? Or what abt ppl who live near any of the other 100s of MILLIONS of hectares that burn around the globe annually? (2/) earthobservatory.nasa.gov/global-maps/MO…
And where do all of us on this planet who are afflicted by #wildfire move? Someplace w/ hurricanes? Derechos? Floods? Earthquakes? Volcanoes? Extreme heat? Sea level rise? (3/)

‘unprecedented fire event’ caused devastation in Oregon. The fires have forced the evacuation of multiple cities & a state of emergency has been declared in the region. Close to a half million acres of land have been burned in OR & WA as of September 8.

1. Portland almost appears to be in the eye of a hurricane. A short while ago, I went out to take pictures of the wildfire smoke that nearly surrounds the city. What looks like fog over the skyline is all smoke from various fires. #OregonFires #pdxtst #orwx ImageImage
2. On the way home, smoke was billowing up from near the DEQ off Columbia and 33rd. It turned out to be a grass fire next to a parking lot and several businesses. One car in the parking lot was destroyed before Portland Fire and Rescue could arrive. #pdxtst #OregonFires #orwx ImageImageImageImage
3. What happens when you do not #ActOnClimate? Due to #climatechange, #wildfire season has grown longer and more explosive. #OregonFires is one example. This is Portland, Oregon tonight. Smoke covers the city. God calls us to be stewards of Creation. We are failing. ImageImageImageImage

EXPLAINER: Why is the sky orange this AM in the Bay Area? 🔶

You'll have guessed it was #wildfire smoke. The bulk of it, says @ggweather, is coming from the north, via light NW winds aloft. Some of that smoke is coming from way up in #Oregon.

But why so ORANGE?

(📸@RadioBWatt)
The sky is 🔶orange🔶 this morning, says @ggweather, because of the upper level density of all that #wildfire smoke.

The smoke filters out different levels of light from sun — and it's filtering out everything BUT those oranges and yellows.

(📸@teacupinthebay)
This 👆 is the reason it kinda looks like a weird sunset right now. It's the same filtering of the light that happens when the sun gets low and sets, says @ggweather.

And if you're wondering why it's so DARK? The thickness of smoke is filtering out MORE light⬛

There is a lot of fear and fatalism around #ClimateChange and #wildfire. The combination of these two will cause significant ecosystem change, think forest to grassland. Large, hot wildfires are the catalyst for change. We can reduce the amount of change that occurs... 1/n
by restoring fire to these ecosystems. Changing our relationship with fire will help ecosystems and reduce the impacts of large, hot wildfires on communities. It does not matter how hot and dry it is if there is nothing to burn. We can manage the surplus vegetation... 2/n
that has built up because we have put out fires for over 100 years. Coincidentally, even if this surplus vegetation doesn't burn in a wildfire, hotter droughts will cause more of it to die anyhow. Fast moving fires like the #CreekFire are supported by large amounts of... 3/n

The historic #CaliforniaFires, the terrible lightning storms, the dangerous air quality, the scorching heat, and the #ClimateCrisis at its worst, are all so unprecedented that one tweet isn’t enough to describe it, so I’ll let this thread do the talking.
