Liberal City Enacts Anti-Pollution Order in Dead of Winter

Uncategorized

The leftists running San Francisco don’t want to merely throw their citizens back to the Middle Ages with their new “air quality” rules, they want to throw them back to before the Stone Age by banning the burning of wood to warm houses.

On Thursday, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District announced that it was issuing a “Spare the Air” alert to last through Christmas Day which would ban the burning of wood to heat residents’ homes, supposedly due to “excessive pollution” in the area.

The authority claims that cool temperatures and slow winds will cause smoke from fires to hang too close to the ground and won’t let the smoke rise up and dissipate into the air.

Naturally, it’s all “for the children,” as the agency claims that children are hardest hit by smoky air quality.

This isn’t the first time leftists have targeted limits or even proposed the banning of wood-burning devices for homes. And it won’t be the last.

“Unfortunately, weather conditions are leading to significant smoke pollution buildup throughout the region that is expected to cause unhealthy air quality through the Christmas holiday,” air district interim executive officer Sharon Landers said, according to KBCW.

The rule prevents people in the nine counties surrounding the Bay Area to use fireplaces, wood stoves, pellet stoves, outdoor fire pits or other wood-burning devices. The only exemption is if a home does not have a modern heating system installed.

Oh, and of course there are fines. The government will fine homeowners $100 for the first “offense” and $500 for a second. The fines only go up from there, KBCW notes.
