Politically incorrect

So a roaring fire is bad for the environment, and doesn't really warm up your house much if any. So what. On a cold and rainy day, tossing on some scrap wood (pieces of wooden pallet from work) and then sitting in front of it just feels right.

  1. Yes, it does feel right, and burning wood properly is carbon neutral, or so I'm told.

    I don't have wood heat in here but I got chilled so I cranked the heat up to 80 for a bit, it's cheaper to do that than go south for a bit, and easier on mother earth.

  2. Wow, you've been learning some big words lately. "Carbon neutral". Yeppers, that it is. It also puts a lot of nasty particulates into the air, which is *not* so good.
