Even in these troubled times, Americans will celebrate our Independence with parades, fireworks and picnics. In honor of happier days, instead of writing about trees dying from ozone, I'm posting two videos that seem appropriate. Of course, if you look at the vegetation in the first one, it does look kinda sick. Just sayin'.

"Fireworks exploding in the air release toxins that can then land in lakes, ponds, and forest adding a substantial amount of pollution to the fallout area. The fallout will either be directly dropped into the surrounding area, or will come down later in the form of acid rain. Acid rain is the dissipation of acid forming chemicals in the form of rain, sleet, or snow caused by chemicals like sulfur and nitrate. In addition to toxicity, fireworks are also responsible for starting thousands of fires every year."
This is just the trailer...you can rent it online - it's the funniest vision of the USA since Pulp Fiction!
