Climate Cult Says You May No Longer Have Your Wood Fireplace

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Are they upset that so many, especially in places like Europe, have gone back to using wood burning fireplaces because the same cult made the use of affordable energy sources like natural gas very expensive?

Changing how we heat our homes can benefit both health and climate

The cheerful glow of a wood-burning stove creates a cozy atmosphere on a cold winter’s night, but the aesthetic appeal of wood burners comes at a high price for human health.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns that wood smoke is largely responsible for poor air quality during winter months in many residential areas across the United States.

Burning wood, in addition to producing toxic gases such as nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide, also generates tiny, solid particles called particulates.

“The particle pollution is especially dangerous because these particles are so tiny that they can travel deep into the lungs, causing irritation and inflammation,” said Dr. John M. James, medical specialist and spokesperson at the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

Well, they actually have a point from an environmental point of view. Of course, what are so many people in 3rd world nations going to do without wood burning stoves? Starve?

Another clean alternative to biomass and fossil fuels is hydrogen, which produces no greenhouse gases or particulates when it burns.

Research and early trials are underway to investigate the safety of hydrogen as an alternative fuel source for heating homes.

In the meantime, one of the fastest-growing technologies is “district heating,” which involves piping heat from factories, waste incinerators, or underground (“geothermal” heat) into homes.

This works well in areas of high population density, such as cities, but less well in rural areas.

Much research and investment lie ahead, but technologies like these offer a win-win for tackling climate change and improving public health.

Right, right, this is super easy for people to do, right? It won’t cost them money up the wazoo, right?

Also, some people just want a nice fire. So, these climate nags can F right off. Mind your own business.
