Harlow - you've checked "And they call this science" section on the start page - right?
Also highly recommend burning issues.
Use their research on wood smoke vs cigarette smoke.
Will the Council ban fireplaces? Push them on it...If they don't - they can't ban smoking. It would be discriminatory.
Check real estate listings in Madison City - should be able to sort by ammenities - search by fireplaces - will they also enforce telling the home sellers they must rip out their valuable fireplaces?
Check restaurants that have the 'cozy' fireplace in the dining rooms - those also create simular carcinogens and should be eliminated- should they not?
Use their interpretation of the science against them - and use the correct interpretation of the science to give them an out.
I used all the reports, including Enstroms at one of my town meetings against the Health Board - they handled me as a 'layperson' --one of them went as far as saying he knows how to read scientific reports and I don't.
I asked him if he had read them - no response - I was a hostile speaker to them and they passed it anyways - I was the only one challenging the science - everyone else was on liberty and rights.
Get more than yourself to challenge the science - gang up on the subject.
Make them prove they have read the reports and not just the headlines. Split up the reports to different speakers - don't cross studies - prepare statements for each speaker -
One thing I would like to find:
Each reports headline - and a quick blurb of the actual reports correct findings vs that headline.
Highly recommend Dr Siegel's blog and Marcus Aurelius' blog
Have someone review the Belmont CA new ruling - will your town council go that far also? Ask them.
And before the meeting - talk to as many people as possible about the Madison ruling - get fire under these people to take back their rights before it's too late
