Orange apocalypse for the fall? Following dozens of major fires across California, the atmosphere filled with smoke and left red-orange light to filter through and tint in the sky for multiple days in mid-September. The abnormal weather was not only a sign of the danger of nearby fires, but also a wake-up call to the severity of climate change. Palo Alto High School science teacher Nicole Loomis emphasized the need to shift towards renewables. “Carbon concentration in the atmosphere will continue to increase at a rate that was faster than it would otherwise,” Loomis said, adding that the nation should “reduce reliance on coal.” Photo: Ethan Chen.
