We consider burning seasoned wood clean energy, as opposed to fossil fuels. The reason for it is that wood stores the carbon that is in the atmosphere already. By burning the wood the carbon is released back to the atmosphere to be recycled by living organisms such as plants and soil. Burning fossil fuels, however releases the carbon that has been stored in the depth of the earth, or the sea, millions of years ago. Releasing the fossilised carbon is one of our major sources of global warming. We need to stop burning fossil fuels ~ and we knew this for at least 5 decades.
Chopping wood and living on clean energy ~ feeling grateful to the trees today.
