BERLIN - NOVEMBER 17: Patio heaters stand at a outside cafe as people's enjoy the sun on November 17, 2008 in Berlin, Germany.

The controversial heaters, popularly known in Germany as Heizpilze, or heat mushrooms, because they are shaped like the fungus, have again been popping up in their thousands on outdoor terraces and sidewalks as colder weather takes hold.
