Less wood smoke means healthier air in our neighborhoods ... on&id=6673

After years of delay, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has finally proposed new limits on harmful air pollution from new wood-burning devices. These devices, such as boilers, furnaces, and stoves, can subject a neighborhood to dangerous air pollution. Wood smoke, which contains soot, carbon monoxide, and other toxic air pollutants, can trigger asthma attacks, cause cancer, and even cut short lives.

Wood smoke can pollute a neighborhood and can travel hundreds of miles away. That means people who live nearby and far away can suffer from inhaling wood smoke. Strong standards will help make sure that new wood burning devices are much cleaner and do not further pollute our air. EPA needs to adopt these long-overdue standards to protect our health and our neighborhoods from harmful wood smoke-related air pollutants.
