Firebugs? See my previous posts on other similar articles if you think that there is ANY heating source outside of solar that isn't actually FAR WORSE than fire- especially since woodstoves have come such a long way. Where do you think all of that electric, natural gas and oil come from? Let me guess: you live in one of the areas that IMPORTS such power, right? Hmmm.....I can tell you where you should take your next educational "vacation." Until I can afford solar panels, I'll burn wood that I cut down from overgrown trees (required thinning or dead wood) in my own area in my eco-certified woodstove (nothing else is allowed in most areas anymore), thank you very much. And it will contribute to asthma far less than the other heating sources will. Coal, anyone?
And these were all very lovely examples of fire focal points- thanks so much! I don't believe most folks really use open fireplaces more than they just like to look at them.
