Internet Rivers: Wood Burning
In piooneer times, settlers stripped local ecosystems bare searching for fuel to burn.
Today, we are addicted to gas and electricity and do most of our heating and cooking with fossil fuels.
Even worse, we now haul away the biomass in our towns as waste to overloaded landfills.
We can make a small reduction in our overuse of fossil fuels by reviving wood and biomass burning technologies. Modern wood burning designs can reduce the effects of pollution. Burning the wood that would otherwise be hauled away is a double plus for the environment.
The moment we exhaust the readily available biomass, biomass fuel becomes as problematic as the rest of the alternatives.
On this page, I list links related to burning wood and biomass for fuel. I've been using a rocket stove and have a great deal of fun cooking outdoors during the summer months.
