O/T: Throw Another Log On The Fire

Page 1 of 2  
One year ago the temp reached 100F.
Today was a struggle to reach the high 60F's.
A Spring winter storm, more like a late Winter storm is coming in off the Pacific.
The ski resorts are loving it, they expect to be open at least thru June.
So, "Throw another log on the fire, .................."

Have you considered what that wood fire will contribute to Global Warming? ;-)

No. Liberals never do what they preach. Look at their preacher, Algore's, estate in Kentucky, which, after public shame and eco retrofit, still uses _20_times_ the energy a typical human's home requires. (He uses 221,000KWh while I used 5,000 last year, 44 times my requirement. Nat'l avg is 10,656KWh annually.) For them, it's "Do as I say, not as I do." Hypocrites, all.

If anything, the particulate matter in the wood smoke will cool the planet.
As for CO2, there is no net gain in CO2 from burning firewood, since the CO2 in the firewood was recently (within a few decades, usually) in the atmosphere. Firewood is 'carbon neutral', unlike fossil fuels like coal and oil.

I love these "carbon neutral" statements about the forms of heating which put out up to 400 times the pollution/CO2 than other forms do. Have you ever seen a quiet valley where there are a dozen home fires going? It's inundated with smoke so your visibility is cut to the next house, if you're close enough. I've driven through Merlin, OR and wondered about the dense fog until I got past the ONE fireplace which had smoked out the entire freakin' town! I drove through several miles of it and could smell the smoke, but couldn't see any fireplaces until then. Two of my neighbors have pellet stoves, and even they're nasty when you're standing downwind of 'em. Uckfay Oodway Iresfay.

I stand by my statement that burning wood is carbon neutral. Look it up.
I made no statement in the post above about air pollution (other than an indirect reference to the particulate matter produced and its effect on climate), neither did I condemn nor defend burning wood.

Of course you do, Scott. And you'd bet your Birkenstocks on it, wouldn't you?

What's a birkenstock?
A few minutes of googling would quickly determine that I've no sympathy for the AGW'ers.
I don't gamble. So, you're incorrect on every point.

A lovely sandal worn by AGWKin' libs everywhere.

Your recent posts don't reflect that.

Hmm, do you go by another name and stretch art canvas? <shrug>

Smoke isn't the problem. It can be a problem locally but it's particulates and if they get high enough and stay high enough they may actually help. It's CO2 that's believed to be the problem, and it's believed that the reason it's a problem is that humans are rapidly releasing CO2 that was stored over tens of millions of years. So wood burning, which releases CO2 that would be released in the next couple or centuries anyway and which will be resorbed by the next generation of trees, is not a significant part of the problem.
Of course that assumes that anthropogenic global warming is a real phenomenon and that it's the huge problem that the fear industry makes it out to be.
