Anyone read today’s blog post? This is completely correct IMO. Burning wood in fireplaces is a terrible decision, and not just for the carbon foot print issue- which is actually arguable for sustainably grown forests, but for the health issue you inflict on your neighbors (and they on you).
We went through this when we were deciding how to heat our superinsulated home. Like everyone else we loved the idea of a fireplace. Too bad about the underlying reality of burning wood. There went that dream up in smoke.
