Asthma death rates rise in under 15 year olds.

We have had just two weeks of regeneration burning and already Forestry Tasmania are apologizing to the people for high levels of smoke and have had to stop their burning today because the air sheds are choked.
These forestry people try and say they have to do regeneration burning, but you can see from the photos below they are burning their waste after harvesting. It is a cheap way for them to get rid of their residue and we all suffer.
Every year forestry are smoking us out and have been for the last 40 years. People are fed up with this rouge agency and are fighting back.

And on the same day we learn that our asthma death rates have risen in children under 15 in this state.
When we know from science that woodsmoke causes asthma to worsen, causes asthma attacks, and it shorten lives, is it really any wonder? You make up your own mind.
