This should be a "Increase the profits". P.G.&E love these situations. The agenda by BAAQCD is to do away with wood burning stoves. These government entities have to justify their racket, taxpayer funded,socialist, cradle to grave jobs.To those that want to be informed google BAAQCD from it's inception in the mid 1950's to today. It has become a Frankenstein monster. Find out how many employees they have today,wages and pensions.It will make you sick!!

So by sparing the air, with record cold nights, Americans are required to purchase either electricity or gas from PG&E in order to heat their homes. Many fireplaces, inserts and other wood burning devices produce no visible smoke, but they have become banned and Americans are subject to be turned in by their neighbors. Something is tragically wrong.
