Air Pollution Comparison

The downtown Fresno skyline is seen in the foreground as snow caps the Sierra Nevada mountains and clouds hug the foothills in the background.

This is a copy of a post made on the Fresno Beehive with a comparison of the downtown Fresno skyline showing a very clear day four years ago and one made recently in the midst of the worse drought California has had on record. Valley residents depend on storms to clear out the pollution and dust that accumulates in the air trapped in the bowl that’s formed between the mountains. With no rain or wind forecast anytime in the near future, the hazardous conditions may continue to get worse.
