Take A Look At This Idiocy/They Will Stop At Nothing

Here is an article from off the Climate Depot Web Page.
People who fear and feel guilty about fireplaces, stoves and how they should be banned. No mention of coal, but; can it be far away?

Hard as it may be to believe, the fireplace — long considered a trophy, particularly in a city like New York — is acquiring a social stigma. Among those who aspire to be environmentally responsible, it is joining the ranks of bottled water and big houses.

“The smoke from a fire smells very nice,” said Diane Bailey, a senior scientist with the Natural Resources Defense Council in San Francisco. “But it can cause a lot of harm.” The tiny particles, she said, “can cause inflammation and illness, and can cross into the bloodstream, triggering heart attacks” as well as worsening other conditions.

There are people that not only enjoy bitching about things, but
get paid rather well for doing so. Wood burning is an easy target.
Wood burners are usually a recluse group with little organization or
political interest. They don't get excited until it's too late.

If wood smoke particles migrate into the blood and cause heart attacks,
then I've been dead for years. If I knew that burning wood kept enviro
whackos away, I'd keep a small fire going all the time.
