Default Re: The end is nigh in Oz for wood heaters.

Gudday
Petrol at $8 a litre would cripple the price of transporting wood to the urban areas as well, we would all be forced to collect wood on foot from our local surrounds. Sobering thought as I have never brought wood but need the ute to transport it

Obviously the pro timber lobby is losing pace with the fossil fuel fellas'. If only we could all own enough land to coppice our own firewood.

At $8 a litre we will be discussing steam powered wheelbarrows!! That's progress?

A rocket stove fired steam generator. We will be talking about wood miles rather than food miles.

A well insulated Community oven, less wood, more efficient use of resources, on site coppiced tree supply and local meat and veg supply and a place to park your bike.

Now you're talking politics. How about the Pizza Oven Party.Back to sustainability where people do things for themselves, living more simply, debt free with lots of cooking and eating. Building a wood fired oven can be the start of a personal revolution. Sounds just like an Italian tradition.
