I care very much and am very concerned and want to take action !

I cannot open my windows at night for fresh air while I sleep because the smoke from fireplaces and fake logs fills the air in Mountain View.

I am fairly neutral on the spare the air nights, but why they felt they could not hold off on Christmas and New Years?

Not sure why we feel compelled to give the government so much control over our lives.

Do I really need the government to tell me what kind of light bulb I need to buy to save me from spending too much on my power bill?
