Controlled Burn Smoke Less Harmful Than Wildfire Smoke

The last few fire seasons have a lot of people thinking about smoke.  And one issue raised is the possibility of more controlled burns during the non-fire season. 

That would likely mean a bit of smoke in the fall, winter, and spring, in the hope of a lot LESS smoke in the summer.  Stanford University weighs in with a recent study that shows wildfire smoke is worse for children than the smoke from controlled burns.  

Dr. Mary Prunicki is the lead author of the study, and our guest.
