    Silly trout will have already run out wood for this winter.

  2. Andy Weiss says:

    With all the cold in the UK, there wouldn’t be very many trees left if eveyone was using a wood burning stove. Since trees absorb CO2, using wood is counterproductive. Also, wood burning stove must also produce greenhouse gases. It certainly causes fires and smells to high heaven!

  3. Myron Mesecke says:

    Doesn’t anyone in the UK remember what the skies of London looked like when everyone was using wood and coal to cook and heat their homes and buildings? Even Disney showed it when he made Mary Poppins.

    I am sure it must be very idealic living in a coastguard’s cottage.

    Most ordinary people don’t have a convenient forest just down the road to get their wood.

    And if she relies on solar for “warm water” she must smell like a haddock most of the time.

  5. Mike Davis says:

    Burning wood is the sure fire cure for the pollution problem. It makes the pollution more visible. Living in a region with a population density of one home per forty acres and having plenty of dead fall wood available I burn wood. The pollutants released by the burned wood are recovered by the surrounding forest.

      Us too. We get all our wood from our own land and that’s our sole source of winter heat (with electric baseboard heat (from hydro power) for backup when we’re gone for a few days).

      But we only use deadfall selectively because it doesn’t pack the heat that wood cut live and properly dried does (we operate two years ahead on this) and because dead trees are an important habitat for lots of wildlife.

      Trying to encourage wood burning in a densely populated place like the UK is total insanity in terms of both pollution and habitat destruction, and if people have to go any distance to get it, it is not even a net ‘green’ idea.

      Given what is going on in the UK these days it is difficult to imagine how these people ever managed to have an empire larger than their imaginations.

        You’ve said it all. Which is why the real question is why anyone takes these nitwits seriously enough to publish their piffle.
