Residents in some parts of Colorado have been having ill effects for weeks, from smoke in the air from forest fires in the NW, (Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, Washington.) The US forest Service and other agencies have elected to let these fires burn until they are put out by natural means. Meanwhile, my asthma has worsened, due to unhealthy air conditions.
Can I, as a citizen, sue the US government for aggravating my asthma condition, by pursuing it's "let it burn" policy? I most certainly am not enjoying, "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness", and my health is being compromised.
