When we discuss the issue of how to deal with the smokey fire seasons now occurring in Montana, we should start with our Montana State Constitution, Article II, Section 3, which says the people have "the right to a clean and healthful environment...."
That seems to mean that the "smoke" issue should be addressed as well as fires. That recent article about thinning and forest management did not really say anything about how to prevent the heavy smoke people are now facing. So, letting the fires in deep forest areas burn obviously causes smoke. What can be done?
