these 'experts' appear to have accepted that public air .... being 30-50 times cleaner than it was pre-catalyst etc .....Big Tea wrote: ↑Mon Feb 24, 2020 5:13 pmhttps://www.theguardian.com/environment ... -pollution
Sales of two of the most polluting fuels, wet wood and house coal, will be phased out from 2021 to 2023, to give householders and suppliers time to move to cleaner alternatives such as dry wood and manufactured solid fuels.
...John Maingay of the British Heart Foundation said: “Wood and coal burning accounts for 40% of harmful levels of background PM2.5 in the UK, and our research has shown that toxic PM2.5 can enter the bloodstream and damage our heart and circulatory system.
isn't an issue ... but private air is
will these 'experts' supervene the EV-obsessed 'experts' ? ....
will the EV-obsessed 'experts' talk to the further 'experts' ?.....
who have mandated that electric heating replaces fuel-based heating - this being antagonistic to EV interests
we in the UK have GWs of subsidised 'dry-is-good' wood burning for generation and CHP and domestic heat
because the previous 'experts' committed us to such huge reductions in carbon emission regardless of particulate increase
we have castrated paint by mandatorily starving it of VOCs (the oily stuff) .....
but tens of thousands of tons of VOCs evaporate from 'bad' coniferous wood '2 year seasoning' to become 'good' ('dry') wood ?
or is coniferous/other resinous wood segregated for immediate non-domestic burning ? (here 'wet-is-good' ?)
while the billions of living conifers spew great tonnages of VOCs into the atmosphere - as do oil crops like rapeseed
this built-in denialism has now been supplanted by acceptance (of biogenics)
