Health concerns over BBQ fuel - Stuff.co.nz
Actually, I don't care what's in the briquettes, what's wrong with this story is this:
Mr Curran complained to Solid Energy Ltd, which imports the briquettes from China.
WTF are we doing importing briquettes anyway? The South Island is made of coal & we can't sell it all because no-one, other than China, is really burning it.
So why aren't we making our own briquettes?
OK, so I consulted this energy engineer I've heard of, and he basically tells me (very nicely) that I may* be talking through my arse.
Briquettes usually aren't made of coal.
* He wasn't going to commit.
