It's not difficult to follow bad influences as set by you.

yeah, blame others for your own errors, as expectable.
That's why you can't have nice things.

  When people claim that firecrackers are part of Chinese new year tradition, they forget that firecrackers were invented only in the Sung Dynasty (960-1279 AD), and no such tradition existed before that time. In other words, like fashion, traditions are created and then disappear with changing times.
With more than 1.3 billion people now in China, and a population density many more times that of Sung Dynasty, and the proliferation of high-rise buildings all over China, the real danger of fire hazards make the new year firecracker tradition no longer justifiable - not in the densely populated cities anyway. The 2009 Chinese new year fire in Beijing which burned down the broadcast building is a case in point that supporters of the firecracker tradition would do well to remember.

Hi there!

I would like to help reduce China's fireworks pollution problem.

I think there just needs to be a bit more regulation - use environmentally friendly materials, dyes, and powders. And, in my opinion, don't ban bottle rockets and those tiny firecrackers with the short fuse! One can play with those all day, compared to those strings that disappear so fast... Plus, bans like this are very commonly broken - it encourages low-level corruption.

Anyway... the reason I registered was because I want to advocate for using blackpowder without sulfur. This I assume would mainly affect the fuses.

I used to use this recipe for blackpowder as a teen, to make my own firecrackers (using this same link). I live in a country where firecrackers are banned.

"Use 5 parts KNO3, and 1 to 1.25 parts charcoal (by weight) for best effect." Use the above link, as it contains graphs comparing it with sulfured charcoal (the author tests with a blackpowder rifle).

Note: - another benefit to using this formula is that less smoke is created, the powder is more stable, and it has a higher ignition temperature. (see above article) Safer fireworks for many reasons!

Please spread this information within China - the powder is really good effective, as documented, and would be much less polluting!
