Quote:Coal fired power plants are all over the place here in the southeast, and the skies are very milky here. I can see a lens of haze and particulate choked air above Mobile whenever I approach it from the interstates often. Truly clear nights have definitely become much rarer in the more than 25 years I have lived here.Taras
