Oddly enough (ha), instead of feeling terror about earthquakes, I found fresh evidence that we face a much wider and almost completely ignored threat. The tree-killing rising levels of tropospheric ozone are not restricted, like an earthquake, to one location, unfortunately. The precursors of reactive nitrogen from fuel emissions and other industrial activity travel vast distances in the atmosphere, and affect every form of life, no matter how remote. I'm not certain that these first two screen captures are from current scenery, although they are presented that way. They certainly depict dead trees.
The following shots though, DO reflect current conditions, because the first is the background for an interview.
This last is from the report live in Memphis. The huge trees in the background have NO LEAVES.
