This is another of the element pieces. As a person brought up with incinerators and open fires I have a fondness for it.
I did not feel fondly towards it when it was approaching my house in the �Black Saturday �fires( It stopped about 1km away) .
In understanding global warming I am now aware that timber stores carbon and that the more we burn the greater the carbon component in the air. I still have an open fire( well Koonara really) but my concern is with large areas that are burnt to remove unwanted vegetation� some of this is necessary at present but some countries ( Indonesia, Brazil) seem to go well and truly overboard in clearing country this way.
I have branches to clear on my property but I now look at mulching most of it rather than burning it�..perhaps every little bit counts?
