Another windy day!

I wish these idiots had to pay for sufferers asthma meds. Ever wonder why the prevalence of asthma is so high here? Nope, it's not the pollen!

Class action lawsuit anyone?

Given the longterm damage that PM10 and especially PM2.5 cause and that these burns can and do grossly exceed EPA standards, people need to start taking action. There's no environmental need to burn the same patch of land every two years. They're just too lazy to use more labor intensive and less risky means to clear brush. We shouldn't have to suffer the health consequences (asthma, COPD, arteriosclerosis, cancer, etc) for their convenience.
