BONFIRES AND BURNING OUTSIDE…

There is a lot of pressure to lower emissions – and for very good reason. We need to reduce our carbon footprint and ensure we take control of global warming as outlined in the Paris Agreement.

The Paris Agreement’s main aim is to increase the global response to the growing issue of climate change. This will be achieved by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees celsius above pre-industrial levels, and to make a real effort to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees celsius. 

Increased pressure is on vehicle manufacturers, heating appliances (including gas fires and wood burning stoves), aviation, construction and many other sectors to be cleaner, and reduce carbon footprint. But one thing appears to be overlooked in the UK – bonfires, which has come under scrutiny recently.

Bonfires are already illegal in Ireland, France and other EU countries. However, in the UK they’re not. According to various sources, it’s been suggested that if randomly burning garden waste and similar was banned in not just the UK but in all counties around the world, there would be a measurable difference to air quality and the fight against climate change.

So why hasn’t this happened yet? It’s possibly due to the fact it would be hard to regulate, and also due to the fact there may not be a huge amount of research to suggest the exact amount of pollution bonfires create. Either way anything, which can reduce pollution should be seen as a good thing.

More on this subject may progress in the future….
