Do you agree that burning wood and biofuel is not really a renewable source of energy? If our society burned wood instead of oil, would it still overload the biosphere with CO2? I suggest if every house was warmed by wood, we would burn the forest faster than it could grow (even without the New York Times being printed on wood based paper).
I have decided to keep my thermostat down to 60 degrees this winter. Humans lived for thousands of years with winter and felt warm in caves that kept a constant temperature of 52 degrees. During the winter when we have a warm day of 52 degrees, many people go out without their coats. Humans are delightfully adaptable.
