That's why people are leaving California. Too much govt intrusion and not enough wood smoke. Those people with asthma, bronchitus and lung disease are bringing the rest of us down to their level with so much govt'l regulation. California is bad, really really bad.

I agree with Cholo. BAAQMD permits big polluting industries, i.e. the Russell City Energy Center on the Hayward shoreline, which will be spewing out tons of particulate matter, then tells residents not to burn wood in their fireplaces in winter.

Most times the winds are blowing on the days they pre-announce as "Spare The Air" days, and the restrictions are unnecessary. This agency is a total waste of money, with over 20 "Directors" on the Air Quality Board.
