I think seasonal wood burning has a far worse environmental and health impact.
I tend to agree with the person before me who said it is art. However, this is often a lousy poll. I am getting less and less likely to participate in your polls that bait and pander to both and all sides of your assumed audience. I have problems with the questions and their presentations and can not take them seriously. There is often never an answer that portrays the real problem, let alone any solution that is meaningful. The result? To participate, you entice us to be as smarmy as you often come across. I think that this is alienating for many and that on your part does not represent any real interest in any conversations that could effect change in any realistic or meaningful way. To me these questions and answers tend to portray disconnection and missed opportunity on your/our part. Further, I cannot encourage polarization in an already far too polarized discussion. Perhaps I am also discouraged to see the least common denominator to what could be better journalism. Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah.
Its art, protected expression. Are we to start complaining about the toxicology of paint and other media? The difference between this and a smoking clunker driving a few blocks to the c-store for smokes is simple. Beauty.
