So, about that carpet warehouse fire yesterday...

I sent an e-mail yesterday to Frank O'Donnell of Clean Air Watch, a D.C.-based environmental advocacy group, regarding the massive inferno that consumed a carpet warehouse in south Fulton and sent plumes of black death wafting for miles.

Turns out there are more than 120 chemicals in carpets, including dioxin, which is a nasty sonuvagun. Think this guy. So burning them is not a great idea. O'Donnell suggested I read this article, and I suggest you do the same.
