To the Editor: A recent MJA article by Kjellstrom et al1 correctly lists home heating using wood as a major cause of air pollution in Australia. It is therefore surprising to read in their optimistic view of "Circa 2100" that, whereas coal will be burnt in superefficient and clean-burning electric power stations, more wood will be burnt to heat houses.
