To the editor:

I’m curious: What is the difference between “wildfire” smoke, that is hazardous and contributes to the greenhouse effect by sending carbon particles into the atmosphere, and all of the “controlled burns” smoke?

Maybe someone a little smarter than me can explain that. And maybe they can come up with another way to reduce fuels or thin out the amount that has built up over the last 30 to 40 years.

Please help!
