Some Fireworks Shows in CA Canceled Over ‘Environmental Concerns’
Much to the disappointment of the few patriotic Californians left, in response to newly mandated environmental rules, several Fourth of July fireworks show along Los Angeles County’s coastline has been canceled, according to the LA Times.
The LA Times reported that;
Debates about the environmental costs of fireworks — known to cause significant air pollution — have been ongoing across many states and countries in recent years, with increasing calls for better oversight and, in some cases, outright bans.
The Galapagos Islands recently limited the sale and use of fireworks, as did Beijing. But this is America, and canceling a fun tradition is ridiculous.

The decisions come just a month after the L.A. Regional Water Quality Control Board adopted a protective fireworks display permit in late May, which requires new best practices to reduce plastics and other pollution that could fall into oceans or marinas from fireworks displays. The catalyst for the new permit came from a federal lawsuit brought by environmental activists against Long Beach’s Big Bang on the Bay, which claimed that the show had violated the Clean Water Act by discharging pollutants into Alamitos Bay. Although a judge didn’t rule in favor of the environmental group, evidence from the trial found at least one instance of “fireworks-related pollutants,” pushing the regional water board to improve regulation of these shows over waterways. ~LA Times
Frankly, canceling fireworks due to environmental concerns is unpatriotic and as un-fun as canceling the traditional eating of hot dogs on the 4th of July.
No surprise, the left is ruining July 4th celebration in LA. New Green rules enforced by environmental radical advocates in CA causes firework shows to be canceled.https://t.co/InOS8Tyw7I

Fireworks are part of the 4th of July celebrations because they have become a traditional way to commemorate and honor the United States’ Independence Day. The use of fireworks on this day dates back to the 18th century when the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, marking the country’s freedom from British rule.
Fireworks symbolize the rockets and bombs used during the American Revolutionary War and represent the spirit of freedom, patriotism, and the fight for independence. They also create a sense of excitement and joy, bringing communities together to celebrate this significant historical event.
Happy 4th of July! And in case your fireworks are canceled in CA, I hope you enjoyed the June 19th ones and will spend time protesting Gavin signing the reparations bill on Thursday since CA never had slaves. https://t.co/vDHKGGFjvF
