Wood burning stoves are greener than heat pumps... says Scottish Government's own report!

• Scottish Daily

It found that CO2 emissions from wood fuels are not only lower than from fossil fuel boilers but also lower than from renewable technology such as ground source heat pumps, solar power and wind turbines.
