Where wood is abundant, people can opt for wood stoves. In that case, we should thank the Left for our new pollution method, not to mention that pollution from woodstoves will help block out that dangerous sunlight. No worries!
Rotting wood releases just as much CO into the atmosphere as burning wood. Burning wood just releases the CO faster.
But the energy released is beneficial when burning, and totally wasted when rotting.
