SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Here's what nobody talks about. There is a science. You can get an advanced college degree in forestry. There's something called the controlled burns that climate alarmist cult members are all dead-set against. You see, if you have a controlled burn, that prevent the bigger fires like the one they're experiencing in Little Justin's neighborhood in Canada that's now making it smoke all the way down here.

CHARLY ARNOLT (GUEST): Yeah, I think a lot of people realize what's happening. They're remaining cool, calm, collected. I think, like you just mentioned, a lot of people are just having PTSD from seeing so many people wearing masks again.

HANNITY: By the way, what are two young, healthy people doing with a mask on?

ARNOLT: Double-masking, by the way. They were double-masked.

HANNITY: Double-masked.

ARNOLT: I think a lot of people -- They were compared the air quality to places like New Delhi and Qatar. But those are places that experience air pollution year-round. This is just really a one-off event. It's caused by forest fires in Canada. People aren't too concerned but AOC, of course, using this as her golden opportunity -- no pun intended, you saw the sky today -- absolutely salivating over because this this is a great chance for her to do some money-grabbing, some fund-raising for her Democratic cronies.
