Marty’s photo of the day #2270: Ever since Ronald Reagan ripped the solar panels off the White House, Republicans have been viciously fighting environmental regulations and denying global warming. This has resulted in more than 30 years of lost progress the United States could have made in solving our climate change crisis. Here in Montana, our fire season has increased in length by approximately 35 days since the time of the Republican demigod, Reagan.

On the bright side, in Montana we get the best sunrise and sunset photos. I took this one on Sunday, at a rest stop, in the central part of the state. One layer of smoke gave the sun a beautiful red appearance, and a lower, thicker layer of smoke made the sun look as if it was in the midst of an eclipse. Thanks Republicans. This sunset is for you!
