Gas, firewood and poverty

This week, on TV, it was shown firewood as a substitute for gas for the poorest sections of the population in Brazil.

Gas has become too expensive - not viable - especially for populations living on the outskirts of Brazilian cities.

The wood stove causes enormous discomfort given the pollution it generates for the neighborhood.

This subject should be the object of study and careful evaluation, given its scope and importance. And most importantly, find solutions to this important problem that directly affects all Brazilians.
