Next, the hibachi, barbecue grill, and portable Coleman heater.
Even my BIL, who is a dyed-in-the-wool global warming True Believer, would tell you this is stupid. He works for the forest service. Wood can be burned in wood-burning stoves to warm a household, or it can be burned in forest fires. The cutting of dried dead-fall in considered forestry health. If it doesn't get removed, the forest service does CONTROLLED BURNS. Either way, the wood will burn, but hopefully not in a uncontrolled forest fire that destroys thousands of acres, kills hundreds and animals, and destroys millions in houses and possessions.

I don't think most state and elected officials care about how people take care of their needs, even if they go broke doing so. They act like they care, but actions speak louder than words. Instead of just bitching about how these people are heating their homes, I saw no mention of affordable suggestions for those that can't afford other means of heating their homes. I guess they think it would be better if they were all gathered around a trash can in an alleyway, before retiring to their cardboard boxes? IDK.

It's all about money. They tax natural gas, propane, and electric, and the providers of those services. They don't collect tax dollars from the guy cutting his own wood.
