Welcome relief: fire situation eases across Alberta and BC.

Almost 2 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of Canada’s natural gas exports — about a quarter — have been restored due to the improving fire situation in gas producing areas of the province.

According to US data provider Refinitiv, receipts at export points at the border hit about 8.1 bcf/d on Wednesday after falling as low as 6.4 bcf/d earlier this month, the lowest in more than two years. That’s still below the 8.3 bcf/d Canada exported to the US since the start of the year, however.

That’s good news! So thankful for the rain helping get things under control

Can anyone tell me why the so called environmental friendly groups are trying to kill forests, which need c02 and clean the air.
