California regulators look to curb beach bonfires, citing climate change | Fox News
A tradition dating back to the 1940s -- bonfire pits on the beaches of southern California -- is being targeted by state officials who say the popular pastime is no longer acceptable because of global warming and negative health consequences.Flashback: Why do they hate my grandchildren?: Warmists take unnecessary fossil-fueled trips to Colorado, then enjoy a planet-killing bonfire!
"One fire pit burning one night, a few hours, a couple bundles of wood, emits as much as one average diesel truck on the road today driving over 500 miles," said Dr. Philip Fine, of the Southern California Air Quality Management District (AQMD).
AQMD staff recommended banning open fires at the beach and removing the hundreds of concrete fire pits that stretch from San Diego to Los Angeles.
The proposal drew fire from beachgoers, who often show up early in the morning to reserve a spot.
