thats camarillo in ventura county. its about 50 miles outside of los angeles. as you can see its pretty much farm-ville with a very minimal amount of builidings, let alone cars. according to the national weather service, the high and low forecasts for wide-open, smog-free, camarillo is as hot, if not hotter than the the city with 'lowest quality air in the nation'. my point: california is just naturally warm; sure smog and pollution may increase temerature, but then how do you explain 80 degree weather for a place like the one above?
