The government plans to ban the sale of domestic coal and non-dried wood from next year to cut pollution. Not before time. Second home owners in rural areas have been causing pea-souper smogs at weekends with their open fires and fancy wood-burning stoves.

I reckon patio heaters will be next on the banned list to reduce the UK's contribution to global warming.

Boris bans the burning of wet wood, sounds like one of his ideas

We definitely miss the obvious point, the millions of cars, trucks and buses on the roads.

The RHI has allot to answer for, a massive increase in biomass boilers then everyone quickly learns that wood-pellets are expensive so seek alternatives.

All public transport should immediately be converted to CNG.

A complete load of bollocks I .ll just carry on burning what the hell the lads drop off. I can't see them taking much notice of it either as most of their stuff is knock-off anyway

Just take a load of disposable barbecues and toss them in the long grass when they're done so you don't spoil the view for others. That's what we did in our "up the 3 peaks in flip-flops" challenge to raise awareness for trans-vegan rights.

You'll have Sting operations to catch old aged pensioners buying anthracite in night clubs.

Middle option. Went for ones that are there but not wired up properly.

Smoke detector vans will constantly be patrolling the streets. If your chimney is spotted emitting excessive smoke a drone will be launched which will drop a probe down your flue to accurately analyze the level of pollution. If the test identifies you're burning even the smallest stick of kindling with a moisture content above 22%, a smoke control squad will immediately gain access to the property and extinguish the source. You will then face a fine of up to £5000 or a minimum two year prison sentence (those who aren't or whose parents aren't originally from the UK will face immediate deportation on serving of their prison sentence.)

These things have only come into fashion, because of the extortionate cost of ‘energy’ bills.
£190 a month for gas and electric or £60 for a dumpy bag of logs, or free pallets, old shelving etc?
