I believe people have had enough of harmful smoke from deliberate burning whether it be from wood heaters, bushfire mitigation, or getting rid of forestry residue.

Communities should not be guinea pigs for research when it comes to smoke inhalation.

Following the WHO findings that air pollution is carcinogenic and particle pollution causes lung cancer, It is time we saw research money being spent on studies for alternative smokeless land clearing, and home heating.
