There are a number of locations where debates and/or information about these and related issues can be found. They include the following.
The Brisbane Institute which has a number of interesting feature including the "Brisbane Line".
CABRA, an organisation aimed at "raising Community Awareness about the health effects of Burning wood in Residential Areas" can be contacted at PO Box 74 Cleveland Qld 4163. CABRA is particularly concerned about the failure of building regulations to control the installation of wood and other fuel burning appliances with health impacts from the products of combustion because there is no means of controlling their operation and hence both smoke and health impacts on adjoining neighbours and neighbourhoods where smoke can be trapped and impacts elevated by local climatic and/or geographic factors.
