    Emissions from Canadian wildfires hit record as smoke reaches Europe (VIDEO)

    The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) reported Tuesday that carbon emissions have reached record levels due to the amount of smoke generated by recent forest fires in different regions of Canada.

    According to CAMS estimates, around 100 megatons of carbon have been released so far this month. Reuters reports that the carbon emitted from Canadian wildfires is roughly equivalent to Indonesia’s annual carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels.

    The CAMS specified that an impact has been seen on the air quality of several cities in North America. Currently, Montreal has been listed as the city with the worst air quality in the world. It also points out the dense smoke from the forest fires reached western Europe in the second week of June, forecasting that it will spread to the east of the continent this Thursday.
