Is your wood stove choking you? How indoor fires are suffocating cities

A wood stove emits more harmful air particulates than a diesel truck. Does their newfound popularity in cities threaten to wipe out progress in reducing air pollution?

Quite interesting and relevant to Greece, where the increase in the price of heating oil led to an increase in the amount of wood burnt.

At least it is a sustainable fuel, unlike oil and gas.
