Spare the Air Nights

On these cold winter nights, it is very tempting to light a wood fire for the ambience as well as the warmth. However, for any of you who venture out on the streets these evenings, you would be surprised how poor our air quality is as a result. The smog from these fires lingers in the air and is breathed in by everyone, from someone exercising to someone walking back and forth to their car. Apart from the dangers in this, it is also downright unpleasant. If you look at the film of dirt on "clean" cars each morning from the overnight condensation, you will see just how much is in the air.
Please do not pollute our air. Smoke from domestic chimneys was banned in Britain decades ago, only smokeless fuels are allowed, and London Fog is no more. Lets make it the same here.
