Hawkes Bay Today is completely stupid

Hawkes Bay Today is a provincial newspaper for Hastings and Napier and they may just have come up with the stupidest article ever written in any New Zealand newspaper. See their abomination here.

It is talking up the “benefits” of having an inefficient, polluting outdoor solid fuel fire.

So what about the poor people who would live next door, or anywhere downwind, or anywhere in the same airshed as those who read Hawkes Bay Today’s article and went oh “yeah lets heat up outside?”

Leigh Bram you’re an idiot. The Editor of Hawke’s Bay Today you’re an idiot.

It seems to be in all the APN papers. Here is the Bay of Plenty Times version of the offensive article. The Editor of the Bay Of Plenty Times you’re an idiot too.

Newspapers are conflicted. They do these stupid advertorials to support their advertisers, and their advertisers have stupid ideas and stupid products. All these forms of outdoor solid fuel heating need to be completely banned. The products should be banned from being sold. The products should be banned from being used. The products should be banned from being advertised. The products should be banned from being talked up in a stupid advertorial. Wood smoke is toxic pollution. All good policy should stem from that fact. We don’t need our clean air to be fouled by some dumb punter thinking that heating the outside air with polluting technology is a good thing. We need to be protected from the pollution of such idiots.
