Regular readers know I’ve been going on about the UK power plant DRAX switching from coal to wood pellets.
And I’ve mentioned the EU directives that encourage wood boilers to be installed in the UK instead of gas.
And I’ve mentioned the trees being felled to burn in Europe.
And the morons at my alma mater SFU.
Guess what … the air is filthy in the UK .
“The current weather conditions, coupled with an “unusually high amount of domestic wood burning“, has led to the highest pollution alert being issued.”
Wood is a crappy high CO2 high particulate matter fuel. Combine that with diesel cars (which I’ve also mentioned) and the great killer fogs aren’t far away.
