Burning Issues has an international membership and was founded by Mary J. Rozenberg, at the Loma Prieta Chapter of the Sierra Club Clean Air Committee in 1987. It is devoted to the improvement of ambient air quality through the reduction of Particulate Pollution, i. e., solid particulate matter less than 2.5 microns in diameter.
The most common sources of Particulate Pollution are residential wood burning (RWB) and coal burning, forest and agriculture burning, and diesel exhaust. The extent of the problem can be grasped in the estimate that 60,000 people die annually in the United States from the effects of these particles.
The principal activity of Burning Issues is the collection and dissemination of the latest science information regarding health effects, economic impacts, and individual actions to reduce and stop solid fuel combustion. Burning Issues also actively does particulate monitoring and has published the results.
