There is always someone who claims it was better where they came from, time to return to those greener pastures I say.

Well, all of you out there who are "Not Green," are your lungs as black as your ideology? What about your kids? Do you want them to have: asthma, high blood pressure, emphysema, more colds than normal, sore eyes and throat?? Is that what you wish for your little darlings? Did you know that living with wood smoke is worse than living with a cigarette smoke, and all the smoke you are pumping into their lungs is causing them to grow up sick?

But maybe you don't really care about your kids--or your own health. You probably already have a few of the above illnesses and will happily pass them on to the next generation--just for the sake of
"your rights!!"

Wishing you all a happy, cleaner air holiday.

You are correct. If everyone used wood fires regularly we would all die and the human race woudl end.


Oh wait. I guess it already did.

Go ahead and breath the wood smoke, you do not really exist anyway. We were all wiped out 200 years ago when everyone heated and cooked with wood.

Gotta go cut our community yule log.

Well, call your local AQMD and see what they think about it.
