Wood fuel to cut emissions by 96% - new report

In a report published today, the Sustainable Development Commission (SDC) in Scotland demonstrate that wood-fuel heating could make a significant contribution to cutting carbon emissions – while providing much needed new rural jobs, and reducing fuel poverty. The report, ‘Wood Fuel for Warmth’, examines the issues surrounding wood fuel for heat in Scotland.

This shows the options compared to just building wind turbines, that can have dramatically deeper impacts on the environment, without questionable side effects. The big issue with wind power is its viability. Clearly an organic policy with a mixed approach to energy sources can be tailored to community needs; rather than questionable deep impact large scale projects that benefit the builders of the project, but provide little else tangible beyond that.
