Brutal and expansive wildfire seasons are making smoky summer skies the norm across the Pacific North West. On a polluted evening in August, activists stood outside of the Walmart in Wenatchee, WA holding the illuminated Act On Climate LED Banner.
People passing though the intersection asked one of the activists, Kevin, what Act on Climate meant.
"I was in the mood for rant tonight and I pointed at the smoky skies, it means if we do not change and stop burning fossil fuels, no one is safe. We could all die."
This action was in collaboration with Wenatchee 350.
