Heatwave bears down on california and arizona and other areas, and in some parts of the southwest, even the western coast of California.
On Friday, two days before a major heatwave hit the west coast, the National Weather Service issued a new heat advisory for the states of Arizona and Texas — the areas hit most heavily by the heat.
The advisory said about 50 percent of the country would see high temperatures of 40 degrees or above, as reported in a Friday report by Climate Central.
With temperatures topping 110 degrees in many parts of California, there would be severe and widespread power outages and widespread smoke from fires.
As the country tries to deal with the worst weather, President Donald Trump, who took office on Jan. 20, asked the nation’s governors to take urgent action after the previous two days of blizzards.
He urged state leaders to step up efforts to clean up air that they said has become too dirty to breath and put more resources into fighting weather, including efforts to reduce the size of wildfires, protect the air, and prevent wildfires from spreading.
Air-quality standards are also being adjusted to address the problem. Air Pollution Control Agency (APCA) announced this week it would phase out federal standards that require particulate matter and volatile organic compounds to be burned as fuels.
The U.S. Air Force said Saturday it was reducing its requirements to burn fuels of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide from바카라 2010 through 2017, but continuing to require the use of high-nicotine blends of tobacco. The Air Force is also proposing cutting sulfur dioxide by 50 percent from 2013 levels and by 100 percent from 2014 levels.
But the Air Force also is looking to make changes for the 2020-21 model year of the agency’s Clean Air Fund program that funds projects to reduce hazardous materijarvees.comal exposure to low clouds of fine partijarvees.comculate matter.
APCA is also testing a new emissions control system that allows aircraft to emit far fewer micro-particles during takeoffs and landings.
