It smells like . . . a West Valley City Fire Department call. WVCFD spokesman Bob Fitzgerald said crews rushed to the Valley Fair Mall, 3601 S. Constitution Avenue (2700 West), about 6:30 a.m. after employees arriving for work noticed a smoky haze inside the mall. Firefighters soon found the source of the smoke — a smoldering Dumpster. Crews doused the trash bin and set up ventilation fans to clear the air, and the mall opened for its daily b...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

One bill was HB154, which aims to lower emissions from wood burning. “This bill does two things. One, it establishes a completely voluntary program for conversion of sole-source wood-heated homes to natural gas or other cleaner fuel. Second, it provides education for the general public about wood-burning conversions,” said floor sponsor Sen Curtis Bramble, R-Provo. The bill was amend...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Phasing out the wood stoves would dramatically reduce fine-particulate pollution, said the sponsor, Rep. Patrice Arent, D-Millcreek. Heating a home with a wood stove, she said, produces as much pollution as 200 natural-gas furnaces. Rep. Edward Redd, R-Logan, said the wood stoves make up as much as...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

But a committee balked at letting the department crack down on wood-burning scofflaws. The House approved HB121, sponsored by Rep. Becky Edwards, R-North Salt Lake, which removes language from state law that prevents the Division of Air Quality from going beyond federal rules imposed by the Environmental Protection Age...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The world population doubles every 50 years. Today there are 7 billion. What will we do in 100 years when the population is 28 billion and human technology is still stuck at burning things for energy? (With most oil gone.) What are we going to do in 250 years when there are 224 billion? We will not have to wait until then to see unprecedented catastrophes where billions die.
