Why is the EU banning coal/wood fires? 09:29 - Feb 21 with 1916 viewsBrianTablet

It's disgraceful that our country has to bend over and submit to the Brussels Eurocrats enforcing their PC nanny-state laws on fuel now.

This country was made great through coal mining and burning wood.

Let's get out of this quango and make Britain great again.

You almost had me there, maybe edit all but the first two of those hash tags...

But having an, ancient, Rayburn installed in the house I am a bit challenged about these new rules (despite having had a heads up, which I perhaps wrongly batted away, from Pinewood Blue). Sometimes I bring in broken branches or twigs for kindling straight from the garden, now I have to think about the particulates I put into the air. Garage is going to fill up with wood drying out.

And so as the loose-bowelled pigeon of time swoops low over the unsuspecting tourist of destiny, and the flatulent skunk of fate wanders into the air-conditioning system of eternity, I notice it's the end of the show

"Garage is going to fill up with wood drying out."

So, whilst slightly inconvenient - the policy, for you, has had the desired effect - it's got you thinking about 'what' you burn.

Perfect.

I should add (and if this sounds condescending then apologies it's not meant that way) - well done for changing your habits!

Nice :).

You've not been allowed to burn wood in London for years.

The sap from green wood screws up your stove/flu/chimney anyway, so not a bad thing.

Ah, I see, will stop burning the wet wood then.

Body parts tend to be a bit on the wet side too, am I OK burning those (running out of space for the shallow graves)?

I know an old boy who provides bags of wood/lint for local garage forecourts.

He’s been doing it since the late 70s and has lost fingers to the cause.

That’s him screwed now :(

Get it nice and hot and you can even get the bones down to ash. I sometimes do a pre-soak in acid first if in doubt 👍

That isnt the point though, nor is the point that China is expanding its coal use by 4 times our entire energy output. You must NOT be allowed to burn wet wood in your modest home burner because of the EnviRonmENT

Brussels Beaurucrats Ban British Bonfires

The bonkers beaurucrats have put a dampner on bonfire night. Guy Fawkes cannot be burned in case it offends Belgians.

No Bangers or Baked potatoes for Brits is the edict.

Well the Sun says shove it where the sun don't shone* Strasbourg.

We've has Bonfires for centuries and no one has been harmed (save a few Catholics and Protestants). And if you aren't careful- the next guy will be you Monsewer Verhofstadt.

The Sun, helping it's readers make up their minds

Well it is about the environment; in this case air quality. China’s irrelevant. We’re creating our own air quality problems detrimentally affecting our own kids. Congestion charging, reduction in speed limits, and now this are all aimed at improving it.

We’ve been here before (albeit a long time ago now), so it shouldn’t come as a great surprise that we are both key to the cause and solution to the problem.

It's actually always been the case for safety reasons - burning wet wood will cause rapid accumulations of tar & soot in your chimney, which will then cause chimney fires.

The environmental reasons are also perfectly valid btw. Why add to the problems when it's totally unnecessary to, because for us there are good & easily available alternatives?

However China has the largest capacity of wind energy generation in thw world & now produces circa 22% of it's electricity from wind farms.
(The UK is, at best, 5th)
Burning wet wood in an open fire is, whatever anyone says,NOT a good idea - it will create the opportunity for chimney fires.
Seasoned wood has a much higher calorific value
