Just ban wood burning in towns/villages of more than 4,000 inhabitants.
Nice thing about Norge is that if you want wood, just go outside and chop down a tree. But pine wood has low efficiency ratio.

The valleys of Southeast Norway are prone to cold inversions in winter, trapping a lot of crap that just hangs around in the air. In addition to smoke, asphalt dust thrown up by steel studded car tires has historically been a problem.

Face masks and the environment: Preventing the next plastic problem

D vitamines do not pollute! more and more research indicating their great benefit as protective against covid-19 (well I should not have told every polluter here about it)

Face masks causes more climate gasses (production) than a few farts, the people breathing through them are likely the same that want to kill cows because they fart, this to save the planet! Strange times!

"Every minute of the day we throw away 3 million face masks. Many end up as potentially toxic micro- and nanoplastic or carriers for other toxicants in the environment, researchers warn."
