In this picture taken on Dec. 29, 2012, oil-press owner Socratis Simeonidis shovels olive pits which he then compacts for sale as heating fuel in the northern village of Neo Petritsi, about 110 kilometers north-east of Thessaloniki, Greece. A steep increase in heating costs has forced many in crisis-hit Greece to switch from heating oil to wood-burning for warmth. But there's a catch. Illegal loggers are slashing through forests devastated by years of summer wildfires, air pollution from wood smoke is choking the country's main cities and there has been an increase in blazes caused by carelessly attended woodstoves.
