Smog in TorontoPosted: July 3, 2013 Filed under: Sky, Toronto | Tags: pollution, smog, smog alert, southern Ontario, Toronto 2 Comments
I’ll be posting more about the beauty of Bruce Peninsula. But meanwhile, we are in the midst of smog days in Toronto, which I think may be our first this year. The smog alert began yesterday afternoon and is still with us. From a high vantage point, where I took these photos, looking south from a little east of downtown, you can see the sweep of the pollution. The smog is also over other cities and towns in southern Ontario. These are not uplifting photos, but more a call to continue working on reducing pollution in our societies.
This is exactly why I left Toronto. Thanks for the reminder.
This is a hard part of living in a city. Thankfully, today the smog has cleared.
