Surely You Jest

The city of Indianapolis has asked that residents stop burning fires in their wood burning fireplaces to reduce winter pollution.

No seriously, you can read the article here.

My question is, what the heck are y’all burning in your fireplaces that is producing more pollution than, say, the factories in town??? Tires??? Dirty disposable diapers????

Yeah, I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that there aren’t that many people in Indy who head entirely with wood, and even if there were, that would not be a huge source of pollution compared to the other gigs we’ve got going on around here. Some bureaucrats just have a LITTLE too much time on their hands.
