This is the best short video that I’ve seen that shows community and regional economic impacts of wood heat vs. fossil fuel. Sustainable use of wood for heat creates wealth here, just as well as in Austria.

As they say in the video “Good heat grows back.” When you heat with biomass (firewood, wood pellets, wood chips etc.) there are undeniable social and economic benefits for all involved. Especially the local / regional economy.
