I'm about to do the same thing - so I hope so!

The prize is several afternoons of wood splitting!

Your very existence contributes to carbon pollution, it's probably best not to get too worried about it!

We have ads on the TV down here urging people to become a Vegetarian to save the planet.
Cannibalism would be a more effective option though!!

Didn't know that, it is unbelievable. Its amazing how influential any media can be....Also amazing that ordinary people swallow stuff hook, line and sinker, with no critical evaluation to find hidden agendas or to think for themselves.

The whole Greenhouse Gas thing is such a farce being pushed by academia due to decreasing budgets and Al Gore who could not hold down a real job - guess you know where I am on that. It causes me great problems as academia looks at catalytic converters for livestock and having the general population stop breathing for 30 seconds every hour or so

And with China coming up to a modern lifestyle, oh my, we are all going to die.

Seriously, the world goes through periods of heating and cooling based on orbital position and solar activity, the later of which we have no clue about. As for the modelling, I like to point to the disclaimer on all legal investments - past performance is not guarantee on future performance.

The models used for prediction are not very accurate, nor fortelling. I believe that the model outputs for this year were totally off.

Oh well, we are all going to die (someday).

I actually can thank Jamie Oliver for giving me the idea to build my WFO. I watched his show one day and he was cooking in a cast iron skillet inside his old WFO. That was all I needed to see, that is when my quest began to have one for my own.

I don't think WFO's are destroying our atmosphere anywhere near the point that our fossil fueled autos, trucks, machines and factories are, but the only 'green' thing about Jamie's ovens are the profits that he's puttin' in his bank account!
But I'd rather see WFO's in every yard instead of Domino's or Pizza Hut tractor trailers clogging our highways and contributing to the worlds pollution and garbage eating obesity!

All wood fired devices are, by definition, "carbon neutral".

If you use coal, a fossil fuel, then you are not "carbon neutral".

Likewise for oil and gas. I still have not paid any money for wood. I often collect fallen eucalypt branches from parks, which are removed by council workers anyway and put into gas guzzling chippers. This has got to be a win win.

Wood burning is carbon neutral only if you plant trees to replace the ones you are burning. The products of burning are CO2 and h2O.
