Air pollution is really awful this week. From the Dumbarton Bridge, we can see how brown it is all over Silicon Valley. Please don't start a fire until the next rain. Thank you.

Why not take some measurements to see if wood smoke actually significantly contributes? The air quality seems rather bad with wood smoke getting its unfair share of the blame.

Everything we know about tobacco smoke is also true of wood smoke--they contains hundreds of the same toxic and cancer-causing chemicals including lead, mercury, benzene, formaldehyde, arsenic, carbon monoxide, and more. WHY say "Don't burn until the next rain" and so forth? Why not say "Don't burn wood period." Especially around schools and parks where children live and are trying to breathe. Asthma is the number one reason for school absenteeism. They need our help!
