The Nation

--The Town Council of Telluride, Colo., voted unanimously to place a six-month moratorium on new stoves and fireplaces in the ski resort town to combat air pollution. The ordinance directs the Telluride environmental commission to formulate a plan to eliminate the community's estimated 300 stoves and fireplaces over the next five years. An amendment to the ordinance allows residents to replace their old wood-burning stoves with non-polluting models.
