The pollution is so bad, we can smell and see the pollution in the air. Please don't add to already unhealthy pollution that is burning our kids eyes and lungs. Thank you.

Air Quality in the Bay Area
In the Bay Area, as in the entire state of California, a certain amount of air pollution comes from stationary industrial sources, such as refineries and power plants. But a greater percentage of harmful air emissions come from cars and trucks, construction equipment, and other mobile sources. California has more cars per household (1.8) than any other state, along with a thriving business economy and a continually expanding population. All of these factors contribute to the state and regional air quality challenges.
No mention of wood burning. Also they say after the anonymous complaint is filed they mail a letter, no fine. They are set up for the anonymous complaints to come in English, Spanish and Chinese.They even have a course for offenders to take on wood burning, for those addicted to wood burning in your fireplace. This is the mechanism Americans reporting on their neighbors.
I haven't heard One Bay Area Plan address this issue when they are pushing 660,000 housing units on us.
YOU haven't heard it addresses because, most if not all cities in the bay area only allow compliant wood burning fireplaces to be installed. that means either manufactured fireplaces with catalytic converters or masonry fireplaces that are certified Rumford fireplaces. Both have very low emissions.
